Tottenham round-up: N’Zonzi updates, Ndombele no-go and Winks backed

All the latest news and gossip from Tottenham Hotspur.

N’Zonzi updates

Tottenham Hotspur are set to rival Arsenal for the signature of midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, according to reports in Italy, and Spanish reports have now shed more light on the issue.

Mundo Deportivo suggest that Sevilla are open to his sale, as they do not want an unhappy player in their ranks.

They do however suggest that Spurs will have to pay his €40 million (£35.4 million) release clause to do so.

Diario AS is suggesting that Spurs could get him for £30.1 million if the Frenchman forgoes his own payment from a deal which would be €5 million (£4.4 million)

No sale

It appears Tottenham Hotspur have no chance of signing Tanguy Ndombele this summer. Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has made it clear that the midfielder is not for sale.

Speaking to RMC Sport he stated that Lyon will ‘not let their best players go’ this summer.

 

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Lyon from Amiens, a deal which has now been made permanent.

Lyon are not set to cash in on the player who, according to The Sun, could have been worth £53 million.

Winks gets the nod

The Sun is reporting that Tottenham will aim to plug the gap from a Mousa Dembele sale this summer with two faces.

The report suggests Harry Winks will be given the task of replacing the Belgian. The England international missed much of last season with an ankle injury but is highly rated by Mauricio Pochettino.

The club will then push ahead with chase for Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Amadou Haidara.
