Tottenham have agreed to pay a club record fee of around £65m for Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, Sky Sports News understands.
The 22-year-old France international will sign a five-year deal and is due to undergo a medical in the next few days.
Lyon reportedly told Tottenham that it would take a bid of £63m to buy Ndombele, who cost them £7m from Amiens last summer.
Speaking to French publication Telefoot last week, he said: "It's true that Tottenham are a great team - a big club. They finished fourth in their league, they were finalists in the Champions League.
"They are a big club like many others. Which player would not be interested in a big club?"
Ndombele had been on the radar of several other top European clubs including Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
