Report: Tottenham could offer £53m man in straight swap for Serie A winger

Tottenham Hotspur could be prepared to offer Tanguy Ndombele to Juventus as they bid to land Swedish attacker, Dejan Kulusevski, in the January transfer window.

Ndombele doesn’t seem to have much future at Tottenham. Antonio Conte offered up a less than convincing response this week when discussing the Frenchman, and it seems his time might be up. And according to reports from Italy, Ndombele could be offered to Juve in order for Spurs to get Kulusevski.

La Gazzetta dello Sport, via Football Italia, have reported that Tottenham could be willing to include a number of players in a deal for Kulusevski. Giovani Lo Celso is one of them, while Ndombele is mentioned as the other.

Per the Mirror, it is claimed that Tottenham see Kulusevski’s age and profile as balancing out the difference in values of the players. Ndomeble, of course, cost Spurs around £53m. Swedish star Kulusevski – who is rated by Cristiano Ronaldo – is reportedly available for around £29.5m.

January is expected to be a busy month for Tottenham. Antonio Conte wants new players to aid his European charge and Daniel Levy is expected to back his new man.

TBR’s View: Ndombele Should Leave Tottenham

We seem to get here every window when it comes to Spurs and Tanguy Ndombele. A new manager comes in, there is some sort of renewed hope, and then it suddenly goes to pot.

Realistically, for Ndombele’s sake really, he needs to move on and find a fresh start. If that is with a giant of the game like Juventus, then that’s a bonus for him.

Ultimately, Conte wants players who will work hard and fit his system. At the moment, he doesn’t seem to fancy Ndombele at all. And if it means offering him up to Kulusevski in return, then it might well be the best thing for all involved.
