His biggest weakness from what I've seen is that he often leaves big spaces in the middle when he recieves the ball and runs toward the goal, but even Fernandinho does that sometimes.
He plays as B2B for Lyon, Tousart is their DM. It's Ndombele's job to advance with the ball.
Besides, Lyon are poorly coached side from what I've seen (watched their games vs CSKA in Europa league).

It's more like a double pivot, but Ndombele has the responsibility of bringing the ball from the defense to the attack, and is the most offensive one of the two. He leaves some spaces behind him, but that can improve under Pep

If your job is bringing the ball out, how do you do it without leaving space behind you?

His biggest strengths is his pace, dribbling and physicality. If you go to the DM thread you will find some vidoes of him. His passing and defending is also good, but he's known mostly as a physical, quick dribbler. His biggest weakness from what I've seen is that he often leaves big spaces in the middle when he recieves the ball and runs toward the goal, but even Fernandinho does that sometimes. He's only 21 and completely dominated PSGs midfield some weeks ago. He's one of the most talented young midfielders in europe right now, and he will be a great player in the future

Serious shades of Yaya with how he uses his strength to beat people and get up the pitch. Think people are underestimating how useful this could be for us against high press teams.

He isn't a Lyon player he is still on loan they have the right to purchase him at anytime during the loan for the agreed amount but then have to agree terms with the player. If we want to talk to the Amiens and discuss what we would be willing to pay if he chooses not to sign for Lyon that's between us and amiens if we should happen to mention what wages we would be willing to pay a player of his calibre and the amiens passes that information on to their player there isn't alot Lyon can do. Personally I think he will sign for Lyon as he was only with Amiens for two seasons and they were happy to include the clause in the loan deal.

Lyon will most likely execute that option.

Options usually can’t be retracted. Amiens have offered the option and now it’s up to Lyon. If they choose to buy him, they can. If not, he goes back to Amiens and we can bid.

Similar to one year extension options in player contracts. Rags triggered a one year extension in Shaw’s contract recently. They did this so he doesn’t leave for free in the summer.

This is why Lyon will likely execute their option to buy because they can immediately sell for a massive profit. Like Shaw, Amiens would prefer the option isn’t executed but both are powerless in this case.

Another similar example is with buyback clauses. The parent club have the option to buy back a player. The player and the current club are powerless in this situation. We saw Real buy back Morata from Juve despite the player wanting to stay, he was then a bench player for a year and finally sold to Chelsea for a large profit. We can do the same with Iheanacho. Say he scores 20 PL goals next season. We can buy him back for £50m I believe and keep him in the squad or immediately sell him for a quick profit.
Depends on whether Lyon have an agreement with the player. If he doesn't want to sign Lyon can't force him to.

Lyon have the option to buy or not to buy. The player agreed to this possibility by agreeing to join them on loan.

So the player is powerless in this situation.

Similar to loan with obligation to buy. The player agreed everything by going on the loan knowing the loaning club have the obligation to buy. Again the player is powerless.

What you are alluding to would be counter productive because it’s not really an option to buy for the club if you have to agree terms with the player first is it?? Because the player can always reject terms and secure a better move.

Not necessarily, if he hasn't signed a term contract he's free to choose his own move under the Bosman Ruling and EU law.
