Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele’s representatives are reported to be in discussions with Paris Saint-Germain over a potential summer switch to the French capital, claim FootMercato.
The 23-year-old became Tottenham’s club-record signing when he moved to North London from Lyon for an initial £55million fee and penned a six-year contract (Independent). TransferMarkt now value the player at £58.5m.
Ndombele arrived at Tottenham with plenty of expectation on his shoulders with respected Jack Pitt-Brooke football journalist describing the capture of the Frenchman as the club’s most important transfer in years (Independent).
Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho singled out Ndombele for criticism after substituting the midfielder at half-time in the 1-1 draw at Burnley earlier this month (BBC).
The report claims that while Mourinho has his doubts about Ndombele turning around his fortunes at the Champions League finalists, chairman Daniel Levy is convinced that the French international will come good at the club.
PSG are said to be in the market for a new central midfielder but are expected to face difficulty in persuading the Spurs supremo in parting company with the player.
