Speaking to Football Insider, a Tottenham Hotspur source has shared some damning news involving midfielder Tanguy Ndombele as star striker Harry Kane also reportedly pushes to leave N17.
The Lowdown: Spurs exodus?
Sky Sports broke news of Kane’s desire to leave north London back in May and there have been no shorting of updates linking him with a move to Man City.
Tottenham have also seen the likes of Erik Lamela, Toby Alderweireld, Joe Hart, Dennis Cirkin, Juan Foyth, Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga leave as manager Nuno Espirito Santo oversees a big summer of change (Transfermarkt).
Now, Football Insider have shared some damning exit news from a Spurs source.
The Latest: Ndombele tells Spurs chiefs he wants to leave…
As per the outlet, coming after Kane informed the club of his desire to leave, yet another player has now told Spurs chiefs that he wishes to complete a transfer out of north London before August 31.
Indeed, club record signing Ndombele, who was a key player for ex-boss Jose Mourinho at large points over 2020/2021, has now sent a message to the Tottenham hierarchy that he wants to quit by deadline day.
He has been frozen out of Nuno’s side lately and his future is now up in the air going into the final stretch of this summer transfer window.
A Spurs source has told Football Insider that the Frenchman wants to leave and he is even believed to have made that ‘clear’ in the summer.
The Verdict: Time to go?
The 24-year-old has bags of ability in his locker, as proven last season under Mourinho, with the Portuguese even calling him ‘incredible‘ as he transformed from an outcast into a key player.
Ndombele, on his day, can prove to be ‘unplayable’, as explained by Joe Hart (BT Sport via VBetNews), and near-impossible to dispossess in midfield.
No Spurs player completed more dribbles per 90 (2.2) than the former Lyon star over 2020/2021 according to WhoScored, with the only question being around his application.
The last thing Nuno needs is another player upsetting the apple cart as he aims to build a positive momentum going into this season.
So, if Spurs receive any considerable offers, they should certainly be weighed up by chairman Daniel Levy.
