Tottenham Hotspur’s Georges-Kevin N’Koudou simply can not catch a break wherever he is playing football at the moment.
Currently spending his time on loan at AS Monaco, the winger would have been hoping that a return to France could have been the perfect move to kickstart his career and finally get back to playing regular football.
However, when plans are formed, unfortunately, they do not always go as one would have hoped.
N’Koudou was on the wrong end of a hamstring injury in the early stages of his temporary spell with the Ligue 1 outfit, which has limited him to just 20 minutes of football – all coming as second-half substitutes in three total appearances.
L’Equipe (via Sport Witness) have claimed that Monaco are looking to reduce their wage bill as financial problems continue to hit a number of clubs around the world and the Spurs man is likely to make a return to north London.
So, what does the future hold for N’Koudou?
Well, it would not be a surprise if Tottenham tried to cut their losses on the player that cost them £9million in 2016 and look to try and offload him permanently this summer.
The Mauricio Pochettino signing has really failed to make any impact during his time at Spurs and has not been able to justify why the club splashed out a significant figure for him.
The 24-year-old has made just 26 appearances for the Lilywhites in his three years with the club and has just one goal to his name.
However, offloading him could be easier said than done this summer.
Tottenham are going to have to find someone willing to take N’Koudou off of their hands and with his recent injury problems, it could be difficult to find a club willing to even take a temporary chance on him.
And, with a contract worth £35,000-a-week lasting for another two years (per Spotrac), it might not be a surprise to still see him on the books at Spurs beyond the summer.
