Some Spurs fans on social media are divided over whether the club should cut their losses on Tanguy Ndombele after the Frenchman’s disappointing first season in North London.

Ndombele would have been hoping that his fortunes would change after the restart but the midfielder hardly featured, with Jose Mourinho preferring the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, and Giovani Lo Celso over the former Lyon man.

The Guardian claimed on Thursday that Spurs could sell the 23-year-old to Inter Milan for around €50million (£45m) this summer. The possibility of a swap deal involving Milan Skriniar and Ivan Perisic has also been suggested as a possibility.

However, Football.London’s Alasdair Gold and The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick have both since claimed that the North Londoners have no intention of letting their record signing leave this year.

Some Spurs fans are unsure who to believe and are conflicted on whether the club should keep or sell Ndombele.

While some are convinced he will eventually come good, others begrudgingly admitted they would rather cash in on him and reinvest the money into the squad.

Spurs Web Opinion

Football fans, for the most part, tend to judge a player based on his quality on the ball rather than his attributes off it. While Ndombele certainly has a silky technique and appears press resistant, he is nowhere near good enough in closing spaces down. Given that Jose is trying to build a team that is effective in transitions rather than a possession-based side, I can understand why he does not want a passenger like Ndombele in the middle of the park. The Frenchman is not a good fit for the style of football Jose wants to play and so I would prefer us to cash in on him.
