The forgotten ‘eating and running’ is back!
Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombele is set to return this summer. Of course, even if he returns, it is unknown whether he will be able to play in the Tottenham uniform.
Ndombele joined Tottenham in 2019 for a record £55 million, the highest transfer fee ever. However, he did not adapt to the Premier League at all and did not show his presence. In particular, after Antonio Conte took over, he almost completely disappeared. He became the ‘worst eater’.
Ndombele, who left for Lyon on a short-term loan in January last year. This season he left for Napoli. Napoli even included an option to make a full signing after the season. 메이저사이트
Things did not improve in Naples, however. Napoli are on the verge of winning Serie A, but Ndombele was not a mainstay. He made just six league starts and 19 substitute appearances. He was nothing more than a backup.
Napoli local media ‘Il Martino’ reported that Napoli had no interest in signing Ndombele outright after the season. An investment of just £26m could bring Ndombele, but even this amount is excessive compared to his performance.
After all, Ndombele has to return to Tottenham this summer. He still has two years left on his contract. Tottenham want to dispose of Ndombele as soon as possible. If the transfer fee is greedy, there remains a possibility that Napoli will completely sign Ndombele.
