Tanguy Ndombele likely to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window
According to Football.London, Tanguy Ndombele is likely to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window after falling out of favour under Antonio Conte. He has been on loan at Olympique Lyonnais since January, but that move has not fared well for him as his future is up in the air as of now.
Tottenham had signed Ndombele from Olympic Lyon back in 2019, which could cost them up to £59.6million in transfer fees. Expectations were high then, but those hopes dropped gradually over the years as he failed to make a mark under several managers. The situation was the same with Antonio Conte, which forced him to leave in January, resulting in his loan move back to Lyon.
Spurs had facilitated the loan move to the Ligue 1 club, which included an option to permanently sign the Frenchman for £54million. However, that clause will not be triggered, which will see him return to N17 this summer. However, he is unlikely to be a part of Conte’s plans for the next season, paving the way for a departure once again in the future.
Massive loss for Spurs
Many would say that the 25-year-old’s time with us has already come to an end following his actions against Morecambe in the FA Cup match back in January. That does make sense, as his body language indicated signs of someone who has given up after struggling to overcome the obstacles in his way.
As such, it would not be wise to add the Tottenham ace back into the squad as he could not turn around his fortunes even during his short spell in France. Hence, it is understandable if the North Londoners would decide to part ways with the midfielder after this term.
Fabio Paratici must do his best to facilitate a move, but that could be difficult since suitors may be hard to find because of Ndombele’s poor run of form. After all, unless we accept a massive loss on the central midfielder, it would be normal for clubs to not approach us due to the high risk involved in a transfer.
Ndombele still has a contract with us which will expire only in 2025. Moreover, his wages of around £200,000-a-week is quite expensive, which makes it even more difficult to facilitate a permanent transfer this summer.

Hence, a loan option would probably be the club’s best bit to part ways with the French international at this stage. Paratici must somehow find a suitable party who can at least take all of the wages from our hand during the temporary spell.
It would be hoped that the Spurs midfielder can somehow turn things around and impress during his loan spell, just like Giovani Lo Celso has done at Villarreal. The supporters would remain hopeful that the club can successfully get rid of their underperforming stars like Ndombele for their best interests.
