His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

Fabio Paratici has always been a general manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.

Massimiliano Allegri is a long term admirer of Ndombele and believes he can get the most out of the France international.

Tanguy Ndombele has the talent to play many roles in midfield.

According to Football Italia (via Calciomercato), “Juventus are reportedly keeping tabs on Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, labelled ‘the new N’Golo Kante’. According to, Juve general manager Fabio Paratici has been following Ndombele ‘for a long time’. The Frenchman is described as a midfield player with ‘versatility, quality and huge tactical intelligence’. However, the website warns a deal is ‘complicated’ as Tottenham Hotspur are on ‘the front row’, while Manchester City and Barcelona have also made enquiries. Furthermore, the Bianconeri will not rush to meet Lyon’s asking price of ’€40-50m’ or engage in a bidding war for the 21-year-old. Nonetheless, CM expects the Old Lady to make their move next summer, ‘without falling into the trap’ of the French club’s owner Jean-Michel Aulas.”


Olympique Lyonnais are reluctant to let Ndombele go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Juventus.

Juventus fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club next summer.
