Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks over a possible transfer on Tanguy Ndombele from north London to Italy, according to The Guardian. The talks include discussions over a reduced fee for the move, just over a year after Spurs made the midfielder their record signing for £55 million.
Ndombele has been publicly criticized by Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho during the 2019/20 season, and it immediately sparked speculative reports about a potential departure from the club. During the campaign, he only made 12 Premier League starts despite the heavy price tag. Mourinho did, however, say the player could yet turn his situation at the club around, but it seems he isn’t very likely to get the chance.
Spurs have apparently informed Inter as prospective buyers that they would be willing to accept an offer of €50m (£45m), though a swap deal involving Inter defender Milan Skriniar may also be on the cards. Mourinho sees the Slovakia international as a suitable candidate to replace Jan Vertonghen, who left Spurs as a free agent following the end of the Premier League season.
