It's been rather quiet on the transfer front for Tottenham Hotspur over the last 18 months. Mauricio Pochettino's men haven't added any new recruits since January 2018 when Lucas Moura arrived from PSG for £25m and in the meantime all of their rivals have strengthened significantly.
But it appears that this summer is going to mark a change. Spurs are always linked with several players in transfer rumours columns and it appears that one move is going to get over the line very soon, and what a move it looks on paper.
In-demand France and Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is heavily expected to make the move to North London in the coming days, for a fee of around £65m which blows their previous transfer record out the water (Davinson Sanchez £38m, 2017).
This is a player that's spent the summer linked with a move to big spending Real Madrid, so if they can tempt him to the Premier League it would definitely be seen as something of a coup.
But it also shows just how much Tottenham are progressing as a club under Mauricio Pochettino. He may not have the financial backing that some of his rivals do but Daniel Levy is evidently proving that they will stump up the cash for the right player, a player who Poch has been desperate to acquire all window.
The Argentine has made them Champions League regulars and even of course guided them to the final where they were beaten by Liverpool. Making it to Madrid could be a sign of things to come in the future so it's not surprise that big players are wanting to join his revolution and play at their fantastic new stadium.
The hype around Tanguy Ndombele has made him one of the hottest properties in the transfer window but just how good is he? We've had a look at what he can bring to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium..
