Tottenham Hotspur have made a final decision on the future of Tanguy Ndombele. That is according to a report from The Sun, who claim that Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is now of the belief that Spurs have enough quality options in midfield without the Frenchman.
It had previously been suggested that Spurs were willing to give their expensive recruit one more season to prove himself. However, they are now looking to move him on, but are wary of taking a big hit on his £65 million price-tag.
It is suggested that Ndombele has not responded to the ‘extra attention and specialised coaching’ offered by Mourinho and is, therefore, surplus to requirements.
Inter Milan are said to be keen, but that would reportedly involve Tottenham taking a £10 million hit in the market.
Tottenham fans were over the moon when Spurs snapped up the French international from Lyon last summer. However, he struggled to showcase his best form on a consistent basis and Mourinho, in particular, has been reluctant to give him extended playing time.
If he does leave, there is every chance he will go on and become a hit elsewhere. However, it appears Tottenham have decided that will not be as a part of Mourinho’s project.
