Report: Tottenham now monitoring Tanguy Ndombele very closely

Tottenham Hotspur may yet consider bringing Tanguy Ndombele back into the fold next season, with Foot Mercato reporting that Spurs are monitoring the midfielder very closely while he is on loan at Lyon.

Tottenham fans may have assumed that Ndombele had made his final appearance for the club. He, of course, angered many supporters with the way he left the field in the FA Cup tie with Morecambe in January.

The Frenchman did not play for Antonio Conte’s men again before leaving for Lyon. And it looked to be a boost for Tottenham that they agreed a £50 million option to buy.

He had not had the best time in North London. He certainly showed glimpses of his quality during his first few years with Spurs. Jose Mourinho labelled him ‘magnificent‘ at one stage. However, those glimpses never led to Ndombele turning into the world-class player Tottenham hoped he would be.

Unfortunately for Tottenham’s plans this summer, Lyon are not going to trigger the option to buy, according to Foot Mercato.

The report notes that there is interest from elsewhere. However, perhaps the most interesting line centres around Tottenham’s stance on Ndombele.

Foot Mercato reports that Spurs are monitoring what is happening with Ndombele very closely. That would arguably suggest that they have not shut the door on giving Ndombele another chance.

Tottenham may be left with little choice but to consider using Tanguy Ndombele again

It is hard to see Ndombele featuring for Conte again. Tottenham are thriving without him. And it does not appear that he works hard enough in some areas to shine in Conte’s system.

However, Tottenham will surely not let Ndombele leave on the cheap. And it is hard to see many sides making big offers for the 25-year-old, even if he is attracting interest.

So perhaps it is not out of the question that Ndombele could play for Tottenham again. Conte gets surprising results out of players.

And perhaps this latest report would hint that he has not yet ruled out giving him one final chance.
