According to Fichajes, Sevilla are interested in signing Tanguy Ndombele from Tottenham Hotspur.
The Lowdown: Record breaker
Ndombele, of course, is Spurs’ record signing (£54m) since making the move to north London from Lyon in 2019.
However, he has struggled to make an impact at the club. He was heavily criticised by former Spurs manager Jose Mourinho for not being fit enough and his lack of commitment (via The Metro), and his future at the club remains uncertain after requests to leave in the summer.
The Latest: Sevilla want Ndombele
As per this latest report from Spain, the La Liga outfit are interested in signing the midfielder in 2022.
It adds that the north London outfit are looking for a fee between €35m (£29.5m) and €45m (£37.9m) if they are to part ways with the France international.
The two clubs have a relationship already of course after the transfer of Bryan Gil, so Daniel Levy will know what to expect in negotiations.
The Verdict: Good money
Ndombele has just not made the impact many expected from him. In 82 games, he has managed ten goals (Transfermarkt), but the criticisms directed at him have certainly damaged his reputation. For the money they paid to acquire him from France, he simply hasn’t cut it.
Will Ndombele leave Spurs?
At this point, it seems as good a time as any to consider any bid for Ndombele and, while this reported interest from Sevilla is not yet concrete, a €45m (£37.9m) fee would not represent that big a loss for Levy ( and co. It remains to be seen whether an official bid comes in soon.
In other news, this man has been blamed for Spurs’ struggles.
