Arsenal battle Liverpool for the signature of in-demand star

Tanguy Ndombélé is attracting interest from Arsenal and Liverpool, this is according to reports by the Metro.

The rising star joined Olympique Lyonnais in the penultimate summer but after impressing for the side last season, the deal was made permanent last summer.

The 21-year-old midfielder has featured in 11 League games for Lyon this term and he has so far impressed in all of his outing. He is one of the brightest midfield prospect in Ligue One but it won’t be long before the top European clubs come for him.

The Daily Mirror reports that Arsenal and Liverpool have developed keen interest in the midfielder and they have watched his progress.

The Gunners are preparing for the departure of Aaron Ramsey, who rebuff contract offers from the club before they withdrew their offers for him. However, the North London club have brace themselves to sign another midfielder in his stead.

Meanwhile Liverpool signed on two midfielders in the summer but they are still in the market to sign players that would come good in the future.

Whoever signs the French player may not field him immediately as he is still developing. Everton and Paris Saint Germain are also said to be monitoring the player.
