Tanguy Ndombele seems closer than ever to leaving Tottenham.

The French midfielder moved from Ligue 1 to Spurs for around £ 54million in the summer of 2019. However, he apparently struggled to settle in north London and was featured in the Spurs Amazon documentary where he admitted he wasn’t enjoying his time at the club.

New Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo was recently asked about Ndombele’s absence during the pre-season games that have extended to the first squads of the Premier League matchdays. He said: “We already had the chance to talk, but it has to come from him. I’ve already said it, my job here is not to convince players to play for Tottenham Hotspur, but to prepare the players to play for Tottenham Hotspur. playing for Tottenham Hotspur, “he told Santo.

Far from being resounding. It has been reported that German giant Bayern Munich have reached out to Tottenham with a £ 17m offer for Ndombele as well as French international Corentin Tolisso.

According to Sky Sports, Tottenham has rejected the offer.

Is he a player Liverpool should watch out for?

The 24-year-old has some similar traits to the late Gini Wijnaldum and would be well suited to replace the Dutchman.

Naby Keïta and Fabinho are the only two midfielders at the club who can deliver the box-to-box dynamics that were typical of Wijanldum’s game – Ndombele offers it in buckets at best. Despite a stop-and-start personality season, he was among the top 10% for progressive carries and top 1% for completed dribbles in Europe last year.

It remains to be seen at this point if Keïta can be replied for a full season given his injury record since joining the club. Fabinho, meanwhile, tends to sit a little lower while playing for Liverpool and doesn’t pace up and down as often.

Ndombele’s signing would complement Liverpool’s existing midfielders very well and he could blend in perfectly with players like Thiago Alcântara, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Fabinho and Keïta.

Despite his misfortune at Spurs, Ndombele still has four years to complete his contract, which gives Daniel Levy the upper hand in all possible negotiations. Furthermore, it is highly unlikely that Levy, one of the toughest and most skilled transfer negotiators in the game, would allow Ndombele to go to a direct rival.

It is unclear at this point how much Levy appreciates Ndombele but should Liverpool join the equation they will face an uphill battle to win a player who signed for £ 54million just two years ago.

The club has yet to sell many of its fringe players and the transfer budget is limited. However, as the two inaugural games of the season have shown, Liverpool don’t necessarily need big investments, they just need smart ones.

The chance to sign Ndombele to a low-cost deal would theoretically be an opportunity not to be missed. Given his relatively young age and the experience he has already gained for Lyon and Tottenham, this would be a great move by the FSG to match the owner’s profile.

Will it happen Unlikely, but should the opportunity arise the club will have to consider it.
