Journalist Mirko Calemme has now shared more news about Tottenham Hotspur’s exit involving club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele.
The Lowdown: Spurs exodus finally underway?
Spurs tried to get players out of the gate last month with general manager Fabio Paratici looking to even the books after sealing six major summer signings.
Who should Spurs sign before the window closes?
A world-class central defender
Harry Winks, Sergio Reguilon, Giovani Lo Celso and Ndombele are not part of manager Antonio Conte’s plans this season as the Premier League side aim to cut their losses on the quartet.
Over the past week, significant progress has been made on these final two players with Lo Celso reliably thought to be on its way back at Villarreal after a successful loan spell in 2021/2022.
Most recent: Journalist makes statement of ‘close agreement’…
Now, sharing more Hotspur Way exit news, Italian journalist Calemme has a major update on Napoli’s attempts to sign Ndombele from Spurs.
He claims both sides are close to a temporary deal on the 25-year-old, and moreover, the Frenchman himself has given the green light to join them on loan.
Calemme explained (via Twitter):
“#Ndombele say yes to #Napoli . Close agreement with #Tottenham there is optimism for the definition of the agreement.
Verdict: Good news…
Ridding at least part of Ndombele’s salary from Spurs’ books, with Calemme also claiming the North Londoners will contribute part of his Napoli salary, will be seen as a victory for Paratici.
Despite some flashes of brilliant form, the midfielder has never really contributed effectively or regularly enough since joining in 2019 and a temporary switch to Serie A might be best for all parties.
Spurs hope Ndombele will activate him in Italy and increase his market value ahead of a possible permanent sale in future windows.
