Tottenham Hotspur finding it difficult to offload Tanguy Ndombele with no real solution in sight

According to Fabrizio Romano on CaughtOffside (Subscription Required) [h/t football.london], Tanguy Ndombele is having a difficult time finding a new club after being left out of the Tottenham Hotspur squad for their preseason tour.

Antonio Conte’s roster to South Korea excluded four players, including the French midfielder. The quartet have remained in London and are training at Hotspur Way, looking for solutions to their future.

Romano has said that there have been no real offers as of yet for Ndombele. The 25-year-old’s agents are in contact with various clubs. But there are no advanced negotiations for the player as of yet.

Tanguy Ndombele has been unable to find a new club as of yet.

Ndombele was Spurs’ most expensive signing until the recent acquisition of Richarlison. The midfielder was a statement arrival for Mauricio Pochettino in 2019, but the Argentinian was sacked shortly after.

Since then, no Spurs manager has unflinchingly put their faith in the French national. Injury troubles haven’t helped his cause either. Now, the 25-year-old looks for a way out of North London.

In his time at Tottenham, Ndombele has featured in 91 games and has had a decent output. After making a place for himself as a regular in the first XI in the 2020/21 season under Jose Mourinho and Ryan Mason, the midfielder fell off.

Not being played enough by Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte, the 25-year-old was sent out on loan to his former club Olympique Lyon. But back in Ligue 1, things didn’t get any better performance-wise and the Frenchman now finds himself in limbo.

The arrival of Rodrigo Bentacur in the midfield in January has made fans realise what we’ve been missing in the position. Conte showed faith in the Uruguayan, which was reciprocated in his performances.

Ndombele is by no means a bad player. The 25-year-old’s quality and ability on the ball are up there with the best in the squad. The French national just hasn’t been able to settle in the side. And maybe the constant managerial changes haven’t helped him either.
