Tottenham Hotspur outcast Tanguy Ndombele can solve Everton midfield woes.
Jose Mourinho is not a fan of Tanguy Ndombele, to say the least. Hopes were high when the Frenchman switched from Olympique Lyon to Tottenham Hotspur. Ndombele even showed early signs of promise under Mauricio Pochettino but since Mourinho arrived, the player’s confidence, morale and form has gone downhill, so much that Mourinho wants him offloaded. Everton can swoop in and offer a way out to Tanguy Ndombele.
After his £54 million moves to North London last summer, combined with the arrivals of Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon, Spurs looked a beast side. Fast forward 12 months, you’d find Ndombele warming the bench, out of favour under Jose, and Spurs just managing 6th place after a torrid start.
News emerged in June that Tanguy Ndombele has told Mourinho that he doesn’t want to play under the Portuguese. At Tottenham Hotspur, the ‘Special One’ has managed 35 games since taking over the reins in November. Astonishingly, Tanguy Ndombele has played only 15 games clocking just 563 minutes.
Jose Mourinho and Tanguy Ndombele aren’t a match made in heaven. They barely like each other at this point. So the ideal scenario will be to offload the Frenchman on loan because recouping anything close to what Spurs paid for the 23 year old last summer is an impossible task, especially when the football industry is seeing a huge drop in finances and pay cuts are being implemented in every sector.

Everton can chip in and offer Spurs outcast a loan deal. Ndombele can any day make into the Toffees eleven. He is accustomed to playing in a double pivot from his Lyon days and carries out offensive as well as defensive work efficiently. He is an excellent attack breaker, sitting deep and breaking the opposition attacks. The 23 year old combines well with his teammates during an attack.
The Royal Blues are in desperate need of a central midfielder and Tanguy Ndombele may be the man they have been searching. A permanent deal will be a big NO, simply because the Toffees can’t afford him right now.
A loan deal will kill two birds with one stone. Spurs will get rid of their unwanted man and Everton will have a competent and highly talented midfielder with the ability to solve the midfield woes.
Barcelona are also said to be interested in the explosive midfielder but with the Blaugrana midfield stacked with the likes of Frenkie De Jong, Miralem Pjanic, Sergio Busquets, Carles Alena, Ivan Rakitic and others, the competition will be fierce in the Catalan squad.
Instead, to continue playing in the Premier League will be a wise decision. Marcel Brands must enquire about Tanguy Ndombele and launch an operation to bring him to Goodison Park.
