Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham could hand Tottenham a boost by heading to Lyon.
According to The Scottish Sun, Lyon want to sign Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham this summer, joining Porto and Marseille in the race.
Ntcham, 23, joined Celtic from Manchester City back in 2016, and quickly became an integral part of Brendan Rodgers' midfield at Parkhead.
Ntcham hit nine goals in his first season with the club, and whilst injuries curtailed his impact this past season, he still picked up six goals in 37 games.
With six trophies won in his two years at Parkhead, Ntcham has enjoyed a productive spell in Glasgow, but with David Turnbull coming in from Motherwell, the Frenchman is poised to move on.
It's now believed that Lyon are joining the race to sign Ntcham, with new boss Sylvinho looking to beat Marseille and Porto to his signature this summer.
Lyon would seemingly want Ntcham as a replacement for Ndombele in midfield, hinting that they're already planning for life after the Spurs target – and potentially aiding Mauricio Pochettino's pursuit.
