Tottenham midfielder, Tanguy Ndombele, is viewed as the most saleable asset at Tottenham if the club wishes to undertake a massive rebuild this summer, according to a report by journalist Karl Matchett in Football.London.

There were a lot of expectations on Ndombele’s shoulders when Tottenham shattered their transfer record to buy him from Lyon last summer but the midfielder has endured an underwhelming first season at the club.

While the Frenchman has shown glimpses of his quality, question marks remain over his fitness and effort levels, with Ndombele seemingly finding it difficult to complete ninety minutes in the Premier League.

Despite Jose Mourinho publically singling Ndombele out for criticism after the draw against Burnley last month (BBC), The Daily Star reported last week that the Spurs boss is prepared to give the 23-year-old a chance to turn things around at the club.

However, Football.London journalist, Karl Matchett, now claims that the former Lyon man is the ‘most saleable’ asset at Tottenham if they need funds to rebuild the squad this summer.

He said: ‘Much more was expected of Tanguy Ndombele, and certainly Jose Mourinho doesn’t currently consider him part of the strongest lineup for Spurs.

‘Perhaps it’s just an adjustment period and he’ll improve given more time to get used to new training methods, new team-mates and new tactical plans.

‘But he’s also already an incredibly good player on the ball, and was highly sought-after only a year ago.

‘Ndombele’s price tag, as much as the expectations on him, arguably make him Spurs’ most saleable asset in any case if there’s to be a big restructure of the team.’

I personally do not think that Ndombele is likely to leave this summer as Daniel Levy will want to recoup most if not the entire transfer fee he paid for the midfielder. I don’t see the likes of Barcelona or PSG paying the same price that we did for the midfielder, particularly after the poor season he’s just had.
