By Lee Jung-bin = Tottenham’s worst signing of all time, Tanguy Ndombele, 26, looks set to finally leave the club. Negotiators from Fenerbahçe, a prestigious Turkic club, have arrived in London and are preparing to hold talks with Tottenham.
Yaz Sabunzuoğlu, a reporter for Turkiye’s Sports Digitale, wrote on social media on Tuesday (July 10), “Fenerbahçe have started official contact with Ndombele. Fenerbahçe officials are in London for negotiations.”
Even under Angie Postecoglou (57, Australia), Ndombele failed to revive the club. There was talk at the start of Postecoglou’s tenure that Ndombele could return to the team, but he hasn’t made a single appearance this preseason. Contrast that with the emergence of another release candidate, Giovani Lo Celso, 27, as a ‘favorite’.
Spurs are unwilling to part with Ndombele, who earns £200,000-a-week with options. Postecoglou’s change of heart put Ndombele back on the market, but no takers emerged for the player who had failed in the big leagues.
A ray of light came to Tottenham, who were desperate for a buyer. Fenerbahçe, looking to bolster their midfield, expressed strong interest in Ndombele. Fenerbahçe sent a delegation of negotiators to London to quickly finalize the deal. Tottenham have placed Ndombele on their release list, which should ease negotiations with Fenerbahce.
Ndombele, who joined Tottenham for €62 million in 2019, was touted as a top midfield talent at the time of his arrival. The arrival of a player who could break up play and deliver attacking passes was expected to solve Spurs’ midfield problems.카지노사이트
However, his poor attitude and inability to adapt to the league turned him into a ‘flop’ and he spent last season on loan at Napoli. Despite winning the Serie A title with Napoli, he returned to Tottenham after Napoli were disappointed with his performances and refused to buy him outright.
