Report: Tottenham make big contract offer to French midfield star

Tottenham Hotspur may have reached the Champions League final this season, but they have done so by the skin of their teeth.

Spurs have suffered injuries to Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Erik Lamela, Serge Aurier, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Sissoko, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, and more in 2019 alone.

The club also decided to sell midfield regular Mousa Dembele back in the January transfer window, leaving a sizeable hole in the injury-hit engine room.

Spurs will surely look to plug this gap in the summer, with one exciting player being linked to the potential Champions League winners.

Tanguy Ndombele and Tottenham have been mentioned in the same breath for some time (Daily Star), but the latest report out of L’Equipe claims that Spurs have now made a provisional contract offer for the star (as reported by Get Football News France).

The report says that the offer made to the 22-year-old is ‘more financially significant than anything they have offered anyone for quite some time.’

This would not be difficult, as Spurs have failed to make a signing in over 15 months, but it implies that Tottenham are willing to splash the cash on the powerful central midfielder.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I have said for some time that Tanguy Ndombele and James Maddison would be my two dream signings this summer. While the transfer fees for both would be enormous, and perhaps out of Spurs’ range, it would be nice to see some positive moves from the club and some bids going in.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. How do you feel about Tom Davies instead of Jack Grealish? I feel like he has more potential…would probably be cheaper and is more of a Poch/Spurs type player. Willing to berltvhis stats are better too.

  2. b- You do not enhance your authority by continuously suggesting that Tottenham failed or made a mistake to not acquire new players in the last couple of windows. Keeping a great team intact and waiting for the right opportunities was (and is) a wise strategy for player acquisition. There is no advantage to acquiring players who are unlikely to play. Yes we had many injuries. If we really wanted to address that; we need to talk to the football associations about changing International football. Spurs injury and “out of fitness” problems can all be attributed to an over – participation in International games. Of course we will acquire several players this window- (more if someone bids for our overstock). We have several EPL quality players who don’t fit at Spurs but could recreate their careers elsewhere. I think it is also wise for us not to spend our time trying to move these players out. Someone will come for them. They will be good value to several lower table teams.

    • Enhance authority? I didn’t say it was a bad thing we have kept a settled squad. But, we bid for Grealish and were turned down, Frenkie De Jong turned us down. So by definition the club tried and failed to sign players. I think it ended up working in our favour but the statement is still correct.
