The midfielder will be entering the final year of his contract this summer and Lille could be under pressure to sell him for a nominal price. They will not want to lose him on a free transfer next year.

Similarly, Tottenham could use more depth in that position and he could be an understudy to James Maddison next season. Both clubs have the financial muscle to get the deal done.
