Tottenham target Tanguy Ndombele started for Lyon.
Since then the Frenchman's profile has continued to rise, along with his price tag.
Remarkably, Ndombele could be worth it.
He was excellent in the Champions League last night at the Nou Camp despite Lyon's defeat to Barcelona.
Ndombele touched the ball more times than any other Lyon player, winning five tackles and making three interceptions.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was in the stands to watch the game play out, The Express reported.
Spurs are currently out in Spain for a training camp.
Here is a look at how Tottenham fans reacted to Ndombele's performance...
Levy pay whatever it costs for Ndombele pls— Durant Jemima Breakfast Club (@n30nblk) March 13, 2019
Poch is at the Barca Lyon game and I pray he is there to scout Ndombele because he’s looked class every time he’s touched the ball.— James Harris (@JamesCHarris97) March 13, 2019
Would love N’Dombele at Spurs.— Vass Koni (@vkon1) March 13, 2019
Pep wants him, so what’s the point really?— Daniel Shack (@Daniel_Shack) March 13, 2019
I'd be more then happy for spurs to spend their whole summer budget on ndombele— Musa (@Musathfc) March 13, 2019
Poch in Barcelona to 'watch Ndombele'. Getting some practice in for when he watches him play for another team he doesn't manage next season, presumably— The Tottenham Way (@TheTottenhamWay) March 13, 2019
