Spurs have had a funny old summer. The North London side made a managerial appointment which underwhelmed at first. However, Nuno Espirito Santo started the Premier League season brightly. There was also the curious case of one French midfielder. Spurs reportedly making an offer for Franck Kessie surely spells the end for Tanguy Ndombele.
Tanguy Ndombele exit rumours
Back in 2019 Spurs signed Tanguy Ndombele for £54m.
The Frenchman arrived with a burgeoning reputation as one of the most exciting young midfielders in Europe.
However, since his arrival in North London he’s failed to deliver on the potential promised by his performances for Lyon.
Over the summer the midfielder asked to leave the club and was subsequently not selected at all during pre-season, nor did he make an appearance in any of Spurs’ five august games.
Spurs offer for Franck Kessie
Over the summer one of Serie A’s hottest properties entered the final year of their contract.
According to Calciomercato, Spurs have an offer on the table for Franck Kessie.
The outlet has claimed the North London side have offered the dynamo £6.8m-per-year.
From January the Ivorian can negotiate a free transfer away from Milan.
Ndombele fate sealed?
If Spurs are serious about signing Kessie then Ndombele surely has his fate sealed.
This would surely be a like-for-like replacement.
Given the form Kessie has been in for Milan in recent years it would be an excellent like-for-like replacement.
The Ivorian has been netting penalties for fun and he has shown that he is as strong out of possession as he is marauding up field.
The question is now: how much of a loss will Spurs make on Ndombele?
