According to Footmercato, Bayern Munich and Barcelona are in contact with Tottenham Hotspur player Tanguy Ndombele’s entourage over a summer move.

The French midfielder only join Spurs for a club record fee last year.

A disappointing campaign, however, has prompted speculation over Ndombele’s future this summer and he remains highly valued by top European clubs.

A recent report from Le10sport claimed Bayern were considering a loan deal.

Now, Footmercato add that Barcelona have joined the Bundesliga champions in their interest in Ndombele with the two clubs opening talks with his entourage.

The French editorial claims Ndombele has been given playing time assurances by both clubs, while the midfielder is keen to leave Tottenham this summer.

It has been a difficult time for the 23-year-old after joining from Lyon.

Ndombele was signed by Mauricio Pochettino who was subsequently sacked. His successor, Jose Mourinho, has criticised the player’s fitness levels on more than one occasion.

Throw in the global health pandemic plus Spurs missing out on Champions League football and Ndombele may feel he has been cursed during his short spell at the club.

Tottenham head into the summer window in need of strengthening. However, without top European football, Mourinho may be working to a limited budget.

A new forward, fullback and central defender may top Mourinho’s wish-list.

Ndombele could prove to be a source in terms of raising funds. Daniel Levy, however, is said to be unmoved on the idea with an agreement to sell him still undecided.
