Tottenham are reportedly close to finalizing an exit for midfielder Tanguay Ndombele. Napoli are reportedly leading the race for him.
However, the deal is expected to be a one-year-loan deal. Although, the deal will include a buy option for the Italian giants.
TOTTENHAM AND NAPOLI ARE CLOSE TO AN AGREEMENT FOR NDOMBELE
According to reports, Tanguay Ndombele is close to joining Napoli. He is not in the future plans of Antonio Comte. Along with Ndombele, Tottenham have told Harry Winks, Sergio Reguilon, and Giovanni Lo Celso to find new clubs. Conte wants to revamp his Premier League squad. The report also states that Tanguay Ndombele is doing everything to leave the club.
Many media reports also are confirming that the French midfielder is ready to take a big pay cut to leave the club. However, he wants the deal to be a permanent one or a deal that has an obligation-to-buy option. It looks like Napoli are ready to go for the loan with the option to buy. According to reports, Napoli have the option to buy the midfielder from Tottenham for £3Om
WHY IT DID NOT WORK OUT FOR THE MIDFIELDER IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE?
Tanguay Ndombele was brought to the club by former coach Mauricio Pochettino for a club-record fee. However, he could never start games and impress the manager. But he tried hard to impress under Jose Mourinho. Although, it only lasted for a few games. The performance of the midfielder kept dropping every match.
Hence, he was loaned out in January by Antonio Conte to his former club Lyon. However, his performances for the Ligue 1 club were also bad. Hence, the midfielder’s career was back to square one. It now looks like Napoli might help him escape the nightmare with Tottenham. The Italian club intends to bring him as a replacement for Fabian Ruiz who is joining Paris Saint-Germain in a few days.
The midfielder needs game time to show his abilities elsewhere. Declan Rice has also described him as a top player and street footballer on the pitch. Hence, a loan move to Napoli does seem best for all the parties involved in the deal.
