Report: Champions League club seriously thinking about buying Spurs player, Paratici wants at least £22m

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele doesn’t seem to have a future at Spurs.

When Tottenham sent the Frenchman out on loan to Napoli, they included an option to buy in the deal.

Previously, it was reported that the Serie A side had no intention of triggering the €30m (£26m) option.

However, new reports are suggesting that Napoli’s stance on signing the Spurs player has changed.

The midfield trio of Stanislav Lobotka, Piotr Zielinski and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa initially limited Ndombele’s opportunities.

However, Anguissa has suffered an injury, giving the Spurs man the opportunity to impress. And he seems to have taken it.

Did Napoli want to sign Ndombele permanently all along?

Il Mattino, via Forza Azzurri and Sport Witness, claims the 25-year-old ‘seems to have convinced’ Napoli to keep him beyond the loan stint.

The outlet suggests ‘it could be useful for him to follow the same path’ as Anguissa did.

This was for him to arrive on loan, convince everyone and then sign permanently.

Il Mattino then goes against the inirial suggestions that Napoli didn’t want to buy Ndombele permanently.

They claim the Partenopei ‘never wanted to work for other clubs’, meaning they didn’t want to loan him, help him improve and then return him.

And in terms of price tag, Tottenham reportedly want ‘at least €25m’. And the Serie A side may well ‘try to ask for a discount’.

It’s good to hear that Ndombele seems to be impressing Napoli.

The player can potentially bring his Spurs spell to a definite end, and kick on in his career at a top club.

Meanwhile, Tottenham can make some money from his sale, though they’ll still have to cut some big losses.

It’s a shame that Ndombele wasn’t able to make a name for himself at Spurs, but at least he’s succeeding elsewhere.
