Much has been made about the future of Tottenham Hotspur’s club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele and contrasting reports have emerged this week.

The 23-year-old is yet to feature on Spurs’ return to Premier League action despite manager Jose Mourinho praising his work ethic during training in recent months.

Murmurs surfaced earlier this week suggesting Ndombele has actually told the Portuguese that he doesn’t want to play for him again, although Mourinho has since denied this.

Would you swap Ndombele for Tolisso?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

ESPN have taken this further and claimed that Bayern Munich would be interested in signing the French midfielder and could even offer his fellow countryman Corentin Tolisso in a swap deal to land him.

Ndombele has played 27 times for Spurs this season, averaging just over 50 minutes per appearance, via Transfermarkt.

Much of the Lilywhites faithful have taken to Twitter to discuss these latest developments.

How many French players have played for Spurs in the Premier League?

It appears that many are against the idea 0f giving up their £55m man for the out-of-favour Bundesliga star with one fan going as far as suggesting that even Erik Lamela is even better.

Here’s the word from the rest of the supporter base…

  • Worryingly, moreso than his fitness problems, who actually knows what Ndombele’s best position is, and does he even have one (a favourite position) himself? Mourinho has obviously looked at this dilemma carefully, and, in the times I’ve seen Ndombele play (which, OK, hasn’t been often), it wasn’t so much his stamina/fitness that concerned me, it was where he fitted into a team that needs to be singing from the same hymn sheet (as Spurs did often under Poch, when injuries, absenses and suspensions were few, and we genuinely looked one of the best teams in the world ). I’m certain there is a highly talented footballer hiding in Ndombele, but first he needs to knuckle down and show he’s keen to grasp Glory, shedding blood, sweat and tears for his, and his club’s, future; and secondly, he and Jose’ need to determine where best he can play in order to drive Spurs forward strongly in any match day situation!
