I still fancy c£50m, possibly £55m is a good deal for Lyon seeing as he's only had two full seasons with them and cost them a fraction of that. He comes with a risk and that risk is that Ligue 1 is nowhere near the levels of the Premier League.As soon as pl club get involved the price goes up
Personally I like him and I'd definitely take him but if we are talking £70m or anything in and around that, it simply comes with too much risk.
Ndombele, Lo Celso, Bale, all the kind of quality I think will add genuine quality to the squad but we aren't a Real Madrid or a Chelsea or Liverpool we operate within out means and a whopper like Tanguy is still pretty reckless spending for a club our size if it is c£70m.
Why out scouts didn't pick up on him & Lo Celso when both were available for what £35m combined is beyond me. Both have quality it's easy to see yet both will now cost around £135m compared to the £35m it would have cost if they were scouted and screened appropriately 12-18 months ago
