Manchester City are stepping up their long-term interest in Lyon star Tanguy Ndombele with the club set to launch a £70 million bid for the midfielder, Sun Sport reports.

Ndombele, 22, has been admired by Pep Guardiola for some time and reports from reliable French sources claimed the Premier League champions had a €50 million bid knocked back last summer.

It is reported that Guardiola has decided that Ndombele, who won the first of his four France caps in October, is the ideal successor for Fernandinho, having the technical and physical attributes required in the Premier League.

Neighbours Manchester United and Italian giants Juventus also want Ndombele, meaning City could have serious competition for the Lyon ace, but it is claimed that the Blues are willing to pay a new club record fee of £70 million to get their man.

City also like Ndombele’s midfield teammate at Lyon, Houssem Aouar, but Ndombele is their priority to reinforce the holding midfield role, which has again see the tireless Fernandinho having to play more matches than a player his age normally would.

During their search for a new midfielder, the Blues missed out on Fred to Manchester and Jorginho to Chelsea, which most fans might now considered bullets dodged.

City also tried to sign Frenkie de Jong from Ajax, but the talented Dutchman will be heading to Barcelona in the summer.
