Could Tanguy Ndombele leave Tottenham?

Spurs may be trying to sell Ndombele this summer, as Romano has reported, but it is hard to see too many clubs pay the £51.5 million that the North London outfit reportedly want.

The 24-year-old also reportedly earns £200,000 per week as salary.

Ndombele has scored five goals in 54 Premier League appearances so far.

That is not exactly the kind of stats that would persuade potential buying clubs to cough up over £50 million for a 24-year-old.
