Lyon are bracing themselves for further interest in Tanguy Ndombele as Manchester City are reported to be back in the hunt.
Only this week City boss Pep Guardiola admitted the club are pursuing deals as they look to finally land Fernandinho’s long-term replacement, and it would appear Ndombele is the man they want.

The 22-year-old has been on Guardiola’s wanted list for some time and it is claimed that City failed with a bid in the region of 50million euros last summer after missing out on Jorginho.
The France international is said to possess the technical and physical attributes required in the Premier League and City will make another attempt to land him when the window re-opens.
City would face strong competition however as Manchester United and Italian champions Juventus are also said to be interested in doing a deal.
City are said to be willing to a club record fee of £70million to land their man, but it remains to be seen if that will be enough to convince Lyon to sell.
