Tanguy Ndombele

It is safe to say our £55m record signing Tanguy Ndombele has been a somewhat underwhelming acquisition up to now.

Although he is new to the PL, his injury problems combined with an apparent lack of desire, effort and focus on the pitch, leave us with a player that has been nothing short of a massive let down so far, at times he has been seen strolling around the pitch and hiding. Maybe it is a fitness problem, a mental problem or a confidence problem, but so far he has turned out to be nowhere near the player we thought we were getting.

On the flip side, he has shown moments of immense talent and ability and the potential to become a truly magical player for Spurs.

With rumoured interest from Barca (probably a load of bull), do we persevere with him or try to get close to our money back and reinvest?

We all agree we need a part rebuild, but Levy will probably not find enough money to complete it, so cashing in on Ndombele could potentially put around £50m into the summer kitty.

The risk is we give him another season to get himself together, but if he continues with his current performances, his value will probably drop off a cliff. Sell him now for decent money and reinvest or give him another season to get his act together?

I would probably give him another season, and hope he can produce the goods, there is potential for an incredible midfield along with Lo Celso and a new mobile and energetic DM.

COYS.

PS: Stay safe everybody.

Levy isn’t going to sell his record signing after one season.

Which seems very unlikely given his form. There’s been a perfect storm that had led to this form also, but he’s obviously very talented. Spurs don’t spend that sort of money on a player and then just fack them off after a season.

What I saw of NBumbeley he's pretty good player. Never lost the ball in one game - and oh yes, he did have the ball plenty of times.
I think he is still in the French national squad, which means Deschamps still rates him. Only 23.
He is one of the more expensive players in that squad, behind Kante, Varane and Greizmann.
So I'd stick with him another season .......whenever THAT wil be!

Selling him would be lunacy. Under a manager with even the remotest hint of a personal touch and he could become one of the world's best.

Yet another reason to add to the list of why Mourinho was a stinker of an appointment.

Fred under Jose looked like 50m spaffed up the wall.
Fred under Ole and his coaching team looks a totally different player.

Maybe Jose isn't the right guy for Tanguy

If we can get him fit and playing the way he is capable of, alongside Lo Celso with Sissoko protecting in the middle, that would indeed be some midfield.

I don’t think it’s just a Mourinho thing, in fairness. Fred barely looked a footballer last season, he’s obviously now settled with his surroundings, teammates and the league. Ndombele will potentially be the same next year, Mourinho or no Mourinho.
