Tottenham flop Tanguy Ndombele agrees loan transfer to Napoli with option to buy after disastrous £65m move


NAPOLI are reportedly on the verge of signing Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele on a season-long loan.

Ndombele, 25, joined Spurs in 2019 for a club-record £65million fee.

However, his inconsistent performances have left both fans and first-team coaches unimpressed.

According to The Daily Mail, Villarreal and Napoli have contacted Spurs chiefs to discuss a season-long loan deal.

Villarreal previously proposed a swap deal which would have seen Pervis Estupinan join Spurs on a permanent transfer, but nothing came of the discussions.

Ndombele has reportedly been offered to a number of different clubs by his team of representatives in a bid to find regular first team football.

Galatasaray and AC Milan have also expressed an interest in signing him, while Lyon are said to be considering a permanent deal.

When speaking to Media Carre, he said: “I think it’s possible to be happy at Tottenham.

“Regardless of where you can go, you can be happy or unhappy.

“We’ll see how things go during pre-season. I’m not putting any more pressure on myself than that.”

The Frenchman fell out-of-favour with Antonio Conte last season which ultimately led to him being sent back to Lyon on a short-term loan.

But, upon his return to London he was ‘banished’ from first-team training by the Spurs boss, who told him that he must find another club before the transfer window closes in September.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, a move away is finally on the cards for Ndombele.

Napoli have reached an agreement to sign the midfielder on a season-long loan from Tottenham.

The loan deal also includes an option to buy.

Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli reportedly met with Ndombele’s representatives in Paris earlier this week to discuss personal terms.

The Frenchman also attracted interest from the likes of Galatasaray, AC Milan and Villarreal, but The Blues were first to hold positive talks with Spurs.

Since joining Tottenham three years ago, Ndombele has made 91 first team appearances.

He has also scored ten goals and assisted nine.
