Graham Roberts reckons that Tottenham should get rid of both Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso this summer.
The pair cost around £100m when they were signed in the same transfer window by Mauricio Pochettino in 2019.
However, neither have been able to fulfil their potential, whilst they’ve contributed to just 13 goals in 100 Premier League games combined – with Ndombele chipping in with nine and Lo Celso only four.

Ndombele was a regular under Jose Mourinho last season after failing to settle in his first campaign in England, although Argentine attacking midfielder Lo Celso has started just 26 games in the league having failed to nail down a starting place.
They sit first and third in Tottenham’s record arrivals list, but Roberts exclusively reckons that neither player can cope with the pace of the Premier League.
Asked which players he could see Tottenham selling this summer, the ex-Spurs skipper exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“I think Lo Celso and Ndombele. They’ve had two seasons, and they’re not scoring goals or assisting, they need to move on. I would look for a creative midfield player.
“I’m not sure what position Ndombele plays, Lo Celso is always injured. The league is too powerful for them, they can’t get to the pace of the league, and if you can’t get to the pace of the league, you’re a waste of time.”
