Danny Murphy has written in The Daily Mail that Tottenham Hotspur new boy Tanguy Ndombele is the best signing of the summer so far.

Spurs spent a club-record £63 million on bringing the powerful French midfielder to North London from Lyon last month.

As of right now, he is the only first-team player that Tottenham have signed, with Jack Clarke returning to Leeds on a season-long loan.

Manchester United and Arsenal have broken the bank on record deals for Harry Maguire and Nicolas Pepe respectively, but the former Lilywhites midfielder believes that the 'outstanding' Ndombele is the most impressive addition that any Premier League side has made as we go into the final three days of the window.

 

He told The Daily Mail: "The deal that has most caught my eye this summer was Tottenham breaking their transfer record to sign midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for £63m.

"I watched Ndombele a fair bit last season, he is an outstanding athlete and has this ability to burst past people and get the whole team up the pitch."

Question is, can Tottenham add to Ndombele over the coming days? For Daniel Levy's sake, you'd hope so.

Spurs have been chasing Giovani Lo Celso all summer long and if that one doesn't materialise then the club's chairman will lose a lot of clout among fans.

That being said, The Daily Record reported on Monday that Tottenham have finally agreed a deal with Real Betis to sign him but, the way things are going, it wouldn't be a major surprise if there was another twist.
