Tottenham Hotspur: Tanguy Ndombele Out, Hojbjerg In

Tottenham Hotspur are set for a busy transfer window as Jose Mourinho begins preparation for the coming season.

According to Sky’s Fabrizio Romano, Inter Milan are prepared to open talks to bring struggling Spurs midfielder Tanguy Ndombele to the San Siro.

Ndombele has been disappointing for the London club since his £55 million club-record move from Olympique Lyon.

The 23-year-old has struggled to replicate the scintillating performances that he did for Lyon which had a plethora of top clubs scrambling for his signature.

The change in head coach has also not helped the Frenchman. He started just 12 Premier League games, scoring two goals and providing two assists.

In Tottenham’s final nine games post the restart, he made just two substituted appearances, featuring for a combined 65 minutes.

Inter Milan are ready to offer Ndombele an escape route and have begun talks with Tottenham over a deal.

A swap deal will be considered with the two clubs reportedly sharing a great relationship following Christian Eriksen’s switch from Tottenham to Inter.

However, Tottenham are not interested in releasing the French international yet, as they want to give him time to settle in and adapt to English football following a debut season plagued by injuries, per Sky.

Spurs edge closer to Hojbjerg deal

Tottenham are closing in on the signing of Southampton’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in their first ditch into the transfer market.

As reported by Fabrizio Romano, talks are still ongoing over a deal between Southampton and Tottenham, who are reportedly £10 million shy of the Saints £25 million asking price.

It’s no secret that Tottenham are interested in Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg after reports this week stated that the London club are in for the Dane. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY FOOTBALL FANCAST.

Tottenham’s right-back Kyle Walker-Peters could head the other way as Southampton are set to make his loan stay permanent.

With Hojbjerg keen on linking up with Mourinho, it’s only a matter of time before an announcement is made.

This move might signal the end for Spurs outcast Tanguy Ndombele, who might be forced to quit the club in search of more game time.

Everton are also reportedly keen on the Southampton star, but with Tottenham offering European Football next season, a move to the White Hart Lane looks favourable.
