Manchester City have been simply unstoppable in recent times as they continue to assert their dominance on proceedings, with a second successive Premier League title in their sights.
The Citizens have managed to secure maximum points from their last three top-flight games against three tough sides, as the likes of Chelsea, Everton and Arsenal were no match for Pep Guardiola’s men.
Although, the defending Premier League champions may already be looking towards the summer transfer window, with a replacement needed for Fernandinho, who is getting on with age.
Interestingly, it appears as if the Manchester club have a player in their sights, as according to The Sun, City are preparing a £70 million offer for Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele.
Ndombele has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe this season, so it comes as no surprise that the Citizens are looking to splash the cash on him. Indeed, a big-money swoop for Ndombele is very ambitious as he’s one of the best in his suited position and he has all the ingredients to become a future star.
Surprisingly, the Frenchman has even been dubbed as the next N’Golo Kante, according to the Liverpool Echo (via Tribal Football). It’s safe to say that he’s very similar to Kante as his tackling, passing and ability to intercept makes him a special player, as well as adopting a dogged approach and constantly providing energy in midfield areas.
There’s only a couple of differences between the pair as Ndombele is significantly taller and more athletic, he is also prepared to carry the ball forward from his own half and makes passes in the final third, which has started to become a regular feature in N’Golo Kante’s game at Stamford Bridge as well.
So, the Citizens would have their very own Kante if they manage to seal a summer deal, as both players grew up and have thrived in France, with Ndombele’s next step being a move to the Premier League.
