Spurs: Alasdair Gold moots Tanguy Ndomebele could be sold in the summer

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele could still be bought by Napoli in the summer, but the Italians may look for a cheaper deal than the contracted buy clause.

What’s the latest?

Spurs sent their French midfielder out on loan over the summer the Serie A side who are currently leading the Italian top flight with a 13-point gap to second-placed Inter.

Ndombele has gone on to make 25 appearances for the Italian side since making the move where he has returned a goal and assist in the Champions League (via Transfermarkt).

Speaking on his YouTube channel, journalist Alasdair Gold has suggested reports from Italy are suggesting Napoli are still considering whether they want Ndombele on a permanent basis.

However, the Spurs correspondent did also add that if they do decide in favour of singing him the would likely look to bring him for cheaper than the contracted clause:

“Reports in Italy that they haven’t decided yet whether they’re going to take up the option to buy him, which reportedly is around €30m – which is about £26.7m.

“Second half of the season, they’re going to make that decision, although the indications are they’ll look for a lower deal if they do try to sign him.”

No future at Spurs

Ndombele has now spent the last year away from north London having been sent back to Lyon in January of last year ona. short-term loan.

However, his former side did not decide to make his return to Lyon permanent and, therefore, another loan was scoped out with Napoli his next destination.

And although Ndombele has racked up a fair amount of appearances for the Azzurri, only six of his league appearances have come from the starting XI.

Do Spurs need to sell Ndombele in the summer?





His last start in Serie came all the way back in the early stages of November and he has since appeared in ever league game since from the bench.

This is clearly not a positive sign for Spurs with their player failing to make any real impact in either of his two loan moves over the last year.

However, with two years remaining on his Spurs contract, it leaves Tottenham with a dilemma ahead of the summer with the player seemingly not having any place in their side.

Ndombele – once hailed “magnificent” by Jose Mourinho – was Tottenham’s record signing back in 2019 but now it feels as if the club should perhaps look to move him on permanently and get whatever they can for him with little signs of positivity from his loan moves away.
