Despite Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas saying last week that Tottenham Hotspur have only offered €45m for Tanguy Ndombele, and he wants a lot more, the transfer has been considered close for a week or so.

Aulas has tried to create an auction for the midfielder, yet his efforts haven’t really had the desired impact. Right now, Spurs appear the only club in town for Ndombele, and unless that dramatically changes there’s little chance of an auction.

Meanwhile, everything has gone quiet on Giovani Lo Celso.

Sunday’s edition of Diario de Sevilla gives their latest take. It’s explained that whilst Tottenham are ‘very close’ to signing the Lyon player, that doesn’t rule out Lo Celso.

The pair are very different midfielders, and it’s insisted Spurs have ‘not forgot’ about the Argentine. Having watched him repeatedly this summer, they’re thought to remain keen on the signing, but there’s likely going to have to be Christian Eriksen movement first.

Friday saw Danish claims of Eriksen’s family house hunting in Madrid, and whilst this was covered in Spain it did nothing to hype up the idea of a transfer from Los Blancos’ local media.

Regardless, the Seville newspaper believes it’s a possibility, and say that should Eriksen go, the prospect of ‘rapid movement’ from Spurs for Lo Celso is very real.
