Ndombele could bid adieu to Tottenham Hotspur after Conte asks for his transfer

Recent reports by Football Insider suggest that Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has asked the club to offload midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. The manager is ready to let the player leave to use the money for better signings.

Tanguy Ndombele who joined Spurs in 2019, has failed to impress new manager Conte. The Italian manager does not see the zeal from the Frenchman to play under his coaching. He has even called out the player publicly by questioning his work ethic and intensity to perform.

The player’s future at the club is now at question with the North London outfit ready to let him go for a permanent/ loan/ loan-to-buy deal. The club wants to get in players who can work under Conte’s command.

Tanguy’s failure to show his top quality

Ndombele joined Tottenham from French side Olympique Lyonnais in 2019 for a fee of £55.45m (+£8.97m). Even though he didn’t pack a huge stat pad, the player was believed to have the potential to be a driving force in the Lilywhites’ midfield.

A great dribbler having the potential to carry the ball forward, he could play as an attacking mid, central mid or defensive mid. The Frenchman also helps out in the team’s defence averaging 1.4 tackles per game. Even though the player had a rough start under Jose Mourinho, he became consistent and ended the 2020/21 season with 33 appearances in the Premier League. (stats via TRANSFERMARKT, WHOSCORED)

However, his lack of intensity and poor work rate have often brought in a lot of criticism. In turn, the France international tried to leave Tottenham in each of the last three summers, including, remarkably, six weeks after he joined the club in 2019.

Why does Conte want to get rid of Ndombele

Antonio Conte is a manager who is famous for his discipline and work ethic. The appointment of Conte was regarded as yet another fresh start for the Frenchman. In spite of that, the 24-year-old is now in contention to leave the club after disappointing the manager. Antonio Conte on the solution to the problem of Tanguy Ndombele’s position in the team, said:

“I have seen many managers struggling about this situation, the position. For sure Tanguy has the quality, but he has to understand there is a team, and he has to play into the team.”

Spurs will likely have to be open to a cut-price sale or loan with the option to buy, particularly in January.
