Talks held: Tottenham approached over potential £55million transfer deal

Posted by

Tottenham are reportedly facing strong interest from Inter Milan in a potential transfer deal for Tanguy Ndombele.

The 23-year-old has not had the best of times settling in in his first season in England, and it could be that his time with Spurs will end up being short-lived.

Ndombele impressed at former club Lyon, however, and it seems Inter are now keen to gamble on a possible move for him this summer, according to the Daily Express.

The report explains that Inter have held some talks with Tottenham over Ndombele, informing the north London club that they want to sign him.

However, it could be that Spurs’ £55million asking price for the France international will prove something of a stumbling block.

Despite Ndombele’s natural talent, his worrying dip in form at Tottenham suggests that anyone paying that kind of fee would be taking a big risk, especially in this market.

It will be interesting to see how this saga develops, as some Tottenham fans will no doubt be hoping Ndombele can simply stay put and try to improve next season.

There’s always the risk that the player could rediscover his best form at the San Siro and leave Spurs regretting not giving him more time to adjust to the Premier League.

  1. So many conflicting accounts about Ndombele, some say he’s staying others he’s going! Though clearly talented there are serious questions about commitment. Put simply we haven’t seen anywhere close to enough of him wearing a Spurs shirt since arriving and considering he is essentially Tottenham’s most expensive player ever, that in itself is a major cause or concern. I have long argued that Ndombele should be given a greater chance, but if the rumours of his desire to leave are to be believed, then perhaps there is little point in the notion of trying to keep him for an unhappy player will not produce his best form. I think now it is merely a question of when he departs as sadly things have never quite worked out for either player or club,and probably time now to move on for the good of THFC itself and concentrate on looking ahead.

  2. Get rid of Ndombele ASAP he is lazy, not committed to playing for the jersey we should not keep any player that doesn’t work and give 100% for the club, I don’t think anyone done their homework on this guy before we signed him, good riddance is what I say.
