Journalist Jack Rosser has told The Transfer Tavern that the best outcome for Tanguy Ndombele would be to leave Tottenham.
The Frenchman became Spurs’ record-signing when he joined from Lyon, but the midfielder is still unsettled in England two years later and hasn’t been able to convince any of the four managers he’s played under that he’s worthy of a regular place in the squad.
Should Tottenham sell Serge Aurier to Lille this summer?
Ndombele did show signs under Jose Mourinho but has hardly featured since his departure and hasn’t played a single minute since Nuno Espirito Santo arrived, including a complete no-show in pre-season.
His £200,000-per-week wages make him extremely difficult to move on, although Ndombele has been linked with a return to Lyon, whilst Bayern Munich launched a bid which included a swap deal with Corentin Tolisso.
Santo has confirmed for the third Premier League game on the bounce that Ndombele once again won’t be involved against Watford on Sunday, which suggests his exit is drawing ever closer.
And Rosser told The Transfer Tavern that selling him would suit all parties:
“Without knowing the situation, I’m not entirely sure but it seems like, quite a few managers he’s had to work under, Ryan Mason didn’t even fancy him, so the best solution for everyone will be for him to move on.”
