‘Discussions advancing’ – Fabrizio Romano claims two Spurs players could be set to leave

Davinson Sanchez and Tanguy Ndombele are both the subject of ongoing talks between Tottenham Hotspur and Galatasaray, according to Fabrizio Romano.

It has been a busy summer for Tottenham and their new manager Ange Postecoglou. With nine signings made during the transfer window, it’s safe to say there is a new-look about the Spurs squad right now.

However, one complaint many Tottenham fans have now that the transfer window has shut, is that the club did not manage to sell enough of its surplus players.

As it stands aside from Harry Kane’s transfer to Bayern Munich, Harry Winks, Harvey White are the only peripheral squad members to transfer away permanently. Meanwhile, the likes of Sergio Reguilon, Joe Rodon, and Djed Spence have all left the club for respective loan moves.

Reports had suggested experienced players such as Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, and Tanguy Ndombele would also be sold this summer (Michael Bridge for Football Daily), but no such deals came to pass before Friday’s deadline.

Sanchez and Ndombele could still leave Spurs this summer

However, the Turkish transfer deadline is yet to close and Fabrizio Romano has revealed that both Sanchez and Ndombele could end up at Galatasaray before their deadline for deals slams shut on September 15.

He tweeted: “Negotiations continue today between Galatasaray and Tottenham for both Tanguy Ndombele and Davinson Sánchez — discussions advancing.”

Romano also mentioned Giovani Lo Celso in his latest update, stating: “Talks do not involve Gio Lo Celso, he’s expected to stay at Spurs. Decisions made 10 days ago.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Offloading both Davinson Sanchez and Tanguy Ndombele would be great, and the club should definitely look to make that happen by any means possible. However, my one concern, particularly with Sanchez is, that we didn’t sign another centre-back during the window and could leave ourselves short of cover at the back.

That said, if we really needed to, we could give opportunities to the likes of Ashley Phillips and Alfie Dorrington.
