Tanguy Ndombele has not quite had the impact he would have wanted since joining Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs paid a reported (The Guardian) club record £55 million to sign the French international from Lyon in the summer.
It came after a host of impressive performances with the French side which had Ndombele being watched by numerous clubs around Europe.
But at Tottenham, he has struggled with niggling injury issues and it appears he does not have the faith of new manager Jose Mourinho.
So should Everton rekindle their previous interest in the player?
Everton will undoubtedly want to bring in another central midfielder next term and Ndombele is a long-term target.
As reported by the Liverpool Echo back in November 2018, Marcel Brands and chief scout Martyn Glover had been tracking Ndombele for some time.
Unfortunately, the secret was already out regarding Ndombele and he was being linked with a host of teams who could offer him Champions League football. Tottenham, of course, won that race. But with reports, from The Sun, that Ndombele’s treatment at the hands of Mourinho may have left his Spurs future in peril, Everton would be wise to put the feelers in.
This is still the same player who was a dominant force for Lyon last season and had Europe scrambling for his signature.
Everton could certainly use a player of his talent in the heart of midfield.
