Georges-Kevin N’Koudou has an uncertain future at Tottenham after falling down the pecking order. Spurs have tried to sell him for £10m, but no club appears willing to match his asking price.
The £35k-per-week winger was loaned out to AS Monaco last season with a view to turning the move permanent if he impressed, but the 24-year-old spent the majority of his time injured and hardly played as a result.
Alex Young of the London Evening Standard says Tottenham are struggling to sell N’Koudou. The 24-year-old has racked up less than 600 minutes of football since joining Spurs from Olympique Marseille and hasn’t impressed when loaned out either.
It’s not hard to see why clubs aren’t willing to pay £10m for his signature, but the situation leaves Mauricio Pochettino in a difficult position. Spurs want to cash in and use the money towards new signings, but they may have to settle for saving money on N’Koudou’s wages for a year by loaning him out again.
The best Totttenham can do is save £1.82m over 12 months. The former French u21 international has two years remaining on his deal, so Spurs need to cash in as soon as possible before his value drops significantly.
