Time’s up at Tottenham for Tanguy N’dombele
If Conte has his way, Tanguy N’dombele has played his last game in a Tottenham Hotspur shirt.
Contrary to Winks, the Frenchman was more of a feature under Nuno than Conte, starting in a run of five games whilst making a sixth substitute appearance before the Portuguese’s dismissal.
Since Conte has been in charge, N’dombele has barely played, with his only league start coming in the 2-2 draw to Liverpool in mid-December.
In allowing N’dombele to leave North London on loan in January, the Italian has made his feelings clear about the midfielder. In truth, even his loan spell at former club Lyon has been disappointing with his output being poor, even failing to nail down a consistent place in the starting Xi.
For a player with such potential, it’s disappointing to see him underperform so consistently at Spurs, especially considering he is still the club’s record signing.
With Conte now likely to remain in charge, it’s no secret that N’dombele just doesn’t fit the system at Tottenham anymore, as he signed in the vastly differing Pochettino era.
After now three underwhelming years at the club, Paratici will try to offload the midfielder again this summer; however, given his mammoth wages and Levy’s desire to recoup some of the near £60 million spent on the Frenchman in 2019, this may prove challenging.
