Barcelona set their sights on Jose Mourinho’s midfield engine, Tanguy Ndombele, of Tottenham Hotspur as potential summer signing next season
According to the recent reports published in the standard sports outlets, Barcelona is all set to splash the cash in the transfer market come the next summer. Barcelona has emerged as the fron-runners to sign the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Tanguy Ndomble in the 2021 Summer transfer window.
After moving to north London a year ago, the Frenchman was largely left out of the playing XI by Jose Mourinho since the sack of Mauricio Pochettino. However, the player has been able to leave the mark on the pitch with some great performances in 2020/21. In the ongoing season, the 60 million euros signing has featured 10 times for Spurs and has already racked up two goals for his side. Despite the string of good performances, it is rumored that the Frenchman will be allowed to leave the club at the end of the season.
Talking about his move, Tanguy Ndomble was of the opinion that it is difficult for the players to adapt to the English Premier League quickly. He said to the Tottenham Hotspur website:
“But above all I think I’ve just settled in better. It’s true that the last season was difficult – to change leagues like that, it isn’t easy.
“But now I feel like I’m really settling in better and I really hope that I’m on the right track for the future.”
Barcelona has its fair share of problems in 2020/21. Not only they have a new manager, but they are also finding it difficult in the absence of new arrivals. Memphis Depay and Lautaro Martinez were rumored to sign for Camp Nou based outfit but the deal couldn’t cross over the line. The colossal financial issues are one of the main problems for the Catalans at the moment.
Barcelona were all set to prize Gini Wijnaldum from Anfield but the deal fell through at the last moment. The star midfielder was high on Catalans’ agenda as they are looking to replace the likes of Sergio Busquets in the middle of the park. Tanguy Ndombele was all set for an early exit from north London but is slowly becoming an indispensable member of the squad in the pivot role.
It would take a huge bid for Barcelona to prize him away from Jose Mourinho. Should the player move away from Tottenham or give some more time to settle himself in the top-flight?
