Roma have made Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele a ‘dream’ signing this month but could have problems with the financial package of a potential deal, according to CalcioMercato.  

Ndombele has seen his future at Spurs plunged deep into doubt after being booed off by supporters during the FA Cup third-round win over Morecambe over a week ago (Sun).

The 25-year-old was omitted from the squad to face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final and reports have since emerged claiming he has been training away from his teammates to work on his conditioning (Football London).

A host of European sides have been credited with holding an interest in signing Ndombele this month, with the likes of Juventus, Napoli and Roma all keeping tabs on the Frenchman (CalcioMercato).

The latter are one of the leading clubs so far, with manager Jose Mourinho said to be fond of Ndombele having worked with him during his brief spell at Spurs (Telefoot).

CalcioMercato suggest Roma want to bring Ndombele, who is ‘on the way out’ of Spurs, to the Stadio Olimpico, however, there could be issues financing a potential deal. 

Spurs paid around £54 million for his services just two-and-a-half years ago, and it is expected the club will look to try and recoup as much of the fee as possible (Standard).

It does seem inevitable that Ndombele will leave Spurs either this transfer window or in the summer. The problem is a lot of clubs cannot finance a transfer – both the fee and his wages – so a loan with an obligation may be the way to go if Spurs are struggling to shift.
