Tanguy Ndombele is expected to leave Ligue 1 outfit Lyon with Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester City reportedly interested.

Liverpool and Manchester City are plotting summer moves for Tanguy Ndombele as the race to sign Lyon’s highly-rated midfielder hots up, as reported by Gazzetta dello Sport.

The France international has gone from an unknown to arguably Europe’s most coveted midfielder in the last 18 months or so, emerging as a player with real star quality under Bruno Genesio at the Ligue 1 side.

The report claims that Juventus are at the front of the queue right now for Ndombele, who is valued at up to £68 million by Lyon’s outspoken president Jean Michel Aulas.

But the Serie A champions will face competition from, amongst others, Liverpool and Manchester City. The Premier League’s top two are reported to be considering a move for Ndombele after apparently renewing their interest.

Telefoot claimed that Liverpool only signed Fabinho after failing with a bid for the former Amiens star, although it seems that Jurgen Klopp could still find a place for Ndombele at Anfield.

The Sun, meanwhile, reported in February that Manchester City were willing to offer £70 million, which would make Ndombele their new record signing.
