Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur are said to be edging closer to a club-record move for Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

According to Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur will conclude the £65m transfer for French international Ndombele before the end of this week.

His transfer would eclipse the previous club record held by Davidson Sanchez who moved to North London from Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam two years ago.

The Davidson Sanchez transfer was said to be worth £42m.

Spurs have not signed a new player in almost two years and Tanguy Ndombele is expected to be their first signing since January 2018.

The last signing made by the North London club was Brazilian national team player Lucas Moura who moved to the Premier League from French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Tanguy Ndombele has been a key player for Lyon in the past two seasons.

His transfer to Lyon was made permanent by the French Ligue 1 club for just €7m.

Ndombele has been linked with major European sides like Manchester United, Juventus, Manchester City, PSG and Champions League holders Liverpool.

His signing would definitely be a statement of intent from Spurs who surprised a lot of people by reaching the Champions League final last season before they were beaten 2-0 by eventual champions, Liverpool.

According to Catalan news publication SPORT, Premier League giants Arsenal have said NO to the transfer proposal from Spanish La Liga club Barcelona.

The Spanish champions want to take leading scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a short-term loan until this summer without any obligation to sign him at the end of the loan spell and the proposal was swiftly rejected by Arsenal officials who are clear on their stance that the club skipper is not for sale.

Barcelona wanted to sign either Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or RB Leipzig star Timo Werner to cover up for Luis Suarez who will miss the next four months after knee surgery.

Luis Suarez had to undergo knee surgery that has effectively ended his season after he picked up a knee issue during the Spanish Super Cup tournament in Saudi Arabia earlier this month.

Aubameyang has scored 16 goals for Arsenal this season with 14 of those goals coming in the Premier League.

Barcelona have since turned their attention to Valencia striker Rodrigo with the fellow Spanish La Liga club keen to do a deal for their player.

The Catalans want to offer a loan fee of €10m for the Spanish international plus pay his weekly salary with the option to buy him out rightly for €50m this summer.

David De Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Fred, Nemanja Matic, Juan Manuel Mata; Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Welsh winger Daniel James.

He has scored four goals and an assist in 24 games for Birmingham City in this campaign.

According to the aforementioned publication, Jude Bellingham will only leave Birmingham City for Manchester United or any other club if the proposed team is ready to send the player back to the Midlands club for the next 18 months until the summer of 2021.

The player also has reservations about getting enough playing time when he signs for the Red Devils.

He is already a regular for Birmingham City this season and that would be almost impossible at a big club like Manchester United.

Bruno Fernandes is a top midfield target for Manchester United and they have already made several offers for the player but Sporting Lisbon are holding firm on their €80m valuation.
