Tottenham ‘offers Tanguy Ndombele in exchange for Houssem Aouar’ as Arsenal ‘pulls out’ of the transfer window.
According to rumours, Tottenham has proposed a swap deal with Lyon for Houssem Aouar.
Tottenham is said to have given Lyon the option to re-sign Tanguy Ndombele in exchange for Houssem Aouar’s transfer to north London. Tottenham has lately entered the competition to capture Aouar, who has been a long-term Arsenal target. The news comes after it was reported that Arsenal had withdrawn from a summer transfer for the Frenchman.
Arsenal and Adidas have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which is based on the club’s motto of “Arsenal for everyone.”
Throughout the summer of 2020, Arsenal was connected with Aouar, but they were unwilling to match Lyon’s asking price.
After approaching the final two years of his Lyon contract, the 23-year-old is available on a cheap deal.
Aouar has been linked with Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool.
Spurs, according to ESPN, have made progress in their pursuit of the midfielder.
According to the source, Tottenham has contacted Lyon to suggest a swap deal in which Aouar and Ndombele exchange teams.
Between 2017 and 2019, Ndombele spent two seasons at Lyon before joining Spurs for a club-record £54 million.
Despite a much-improved second season with the club last season, he has struggled to live up to his billing.
Lyon has yet to respond formally to Spurs’ proposition, according to ESPN, and conversations between the clubs are still ongoing.
