Tanguy Ndombele hopes to revive Tottenham Hotspur career

Tanguy Ndombele wishes to return to Tottenham Hotspur next season and rejuvenate his career in north London, reports French outlet Foot Mercato.

Ndombele joined Tottenham in the summer transfer window of 2019, signing from Lyon on a six-year deal.

At an initial fee of around £55 million, the Frenchman was Spurs’ record signing.

However, his time at the Lilywhites has not worked out. He has often shown glimpses of ability but has failed to consistently reproduce it.

His attitude has also been openly criticised by several managers. In his most recent appearance for Spurs, he was booed off the pitch during a 3-1 FA Cup victory over Morecambe.

The 26-year-old has since had loan spells at Lyon and Napoli. At the latter, he helped them win the Serie A title, but the club have decided not to activate the option to buy in his deal.

It is unclear where he will be playing his football next year, but he is reportedly hoping to revive his career at Tottenham.

It is expected to be a turbulent summer at Spurs. They remain in the hunt for a new manager, as well as a sporting director to replace the departing Fabio Paratici.

The future of club record goalscorer Harry Kane remains up in the air.

Because of this, the door may be open for Ndombele to return. The next boss may take a chance on the seven-cap France international.

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou is currently the favourite for the hot seat in north London.

Julian Nagelsmann and Arne Slot were closely linked but have since been ruled out of the running.
