Marseille and Galatasaray have emerged as potential options for Spurs midfielder Tanguy Ndombele this summer, although the player himself prefers a move to Spain or Italy. 

Clubs from the two aforementioned countries have reportedly been in touch to enquire about what a deal could look like, but have not firmed up their interest as of yet.

Things have never quite clicked for Spurs’ record signing since he moved to Tottenham back in the summer of 2019. He has made 91 appearances for Spurs in his time at the club, registering ten goals and nine assists (Transfermarkt).

The Frenchman has found himself out of favour under Antonio Conte and he spent the second half of last season on loan at Olympique Lyon, the club that sold him to Spurs three years ago.

Upon his return to North London, Conte made it clear that Ndombele was not part of his plans (Evening Standard). The player was even left out of the recent pre-season tour to South Korea.

Offloading the French midfielder has proved to be rather difficult, with the player’s £200,000 per week wages a factor (Spotrac). Journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke told The Last Word on Spurs YouTube channel he doesn’t “think [Ndombele] is in demand enough in Europe.”

Now though, a report from Sky Sports (via Football Daily) revealed French club Marseille and Turkish side Galatasary are ‘potential options’ for the Spurs player.

The report claimed: “Marseille and Galatasary are among the potential options for Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombele before the transfer deadline.

“We understand that he favours a move to either Italy or Spain. Clubs from those two countries have inquired about what a move might look like for the midfielder, but that hasn’t really been followed up on since.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Has there ever been a more frustrating player at Tottenham Hotspur than Tanguy Ndombele? At a time when the club is searching for a creative midfielder who can unlock defences and offer something different in the middle of the park, there is potentially the perfect player sitting there doing nothing (and costing a fortune in the process).

Enough managers have tried and failed now to get the best out of Ndombele and it’s high time he moved on. Sadly, it’s unlikely that any club will be able to afford a straight transfer this summer, so it will probably have to be a loan spell again for the Frenchman. Here’s hoping someone makes a move for him sooner rather than later.
