Tottenham Hotspur Transfer News: Tanguy Ndombele’s future appears to be away from Spurs as reports link him with an exit from the Premier League side. Fabrizio Romano reports that Napoli are among the clubs interested in the French midfielder.
Tottenham Hotspur are looking to offload Ndombele, with the 25-year-old said to be deemed surplus to requirements by head coach Antonio Conte.
Ndombele spent the second half of last season on loan at his former side Lyon. The French side, where he had previously spent two seasons at, also had the option to buy him for €65 million. But they chose not to sign on a permanent deal.
Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Villarreal also interested in Ndombele
Napoli are not the only side linked with a move for Ndombele, with La Liga outfit Villarreal also discussing a potential move for the midfielder. Villarreal also want to sign another Tottenham midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.
Lo Celso also spent the second half of last season on loan away from Tottenham. The Argentine midfielder joined Villarreal on a loan, and had an impressive spell at the Spanish side. Villarreal now want Lo Celso back, and Romano says it is ‘the priority’ for the Yellow Submarine.
90min report that Tottenham Hotspur want both Lo Celso and Ndombele to leave on permanent deals. But, they further add Villarreal only want to sign them on initial loan deals first.
Elsewhere, Napoli are also working on deals for several other players in the transfer market, including Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican goalkeeper currently has two more years left on his PSG contract. But he could be on the move this summer with PSG reportedly ready to sell the 35-year-old.
Sassuolo forward Giacomo Raspadori has also attracted transfer interest from Napoli. Raspadori has a contract until 2024 with his current club, and but reports have heavily linked him with an exit.
Giovanni Simeone, who enjoyed an impressive at Hellas Verona last season, has also attracted Napoli’s interest. The 27-year-old Argentine attacker scored 17 goals and gave six assists from 36 appearances for Hellas Verona last season. This helped them to a ninth-place finish in the Serie A last season.
