Tottenham have reportedly put midfielder Tanguy Ndombele on the transfer list and are prepared to offload him just a year after he joined them for £65million from Lyon.
According to the Sun, Spurs manager Jose Mourinho is willing to sell the 23-year-old in this summer transfer window and is overseeing an overhaul of the squad.
With the Frenchman’s future at the north London club now uncertain, it would make sense for them to possibly consider a replacement as he would leave a gap in the squad.
He was signed to be a central midfielder that provided a real attacking threat and arrived from Ligue 1 with a great reputation, but he managed two goals in 29 appearances last season across all competitions as he struggled to settle into English football.
Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli are two strong options in the Spurs squad that can play as creative midfielders, but they need more if they want to push for top four next season and possibly silverware.
Jack Grealish, who is captain at Premier League rivals Aston Villa, is exactly the type of target that Mourinho should look at signing to strengthen his squad.
The Mirror claimed back in May 2019 that Grealish was a target of Spurs and that they are long-term admirers of him.
With previous links to Grealish existing, Spurs should reignite that this summer to try bring him to London and he would be an ideal replacement for Ndombele if he were to leave.
Grealish, 24, has just earned his first senior international call-up for England after an excellent individual season with Villa, where he was the talisman in keeping them in the top-flight with some dazzling performances.
The Birmingham-born creator is a midfield playmaker that was directly involved in 18 goals across all competitions during the last campaign for Villa and looks destined to earn a big transfer at some point considering his ability.
He could certainly bring some creative flair as well as tenacity to Spurs in the centre of the park, so an enquiry should be made for him.
