AS Roma linked with surprise move for Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele

Tanguy Ndombele is getting closer to Roma day by day as transfer talk continues to intensify.

According to multiple reports emanating from Italy, Roma are linked with surprise move for Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

Tottenham spent 60 million euros to sign the France international from Lyon in the summer of 2019. The 25-year-old has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2025.

The midfielder has featured in 14 matches this term, netting 2 goals and providing one assist in all competitions.

He’s incredibly experienced for a 25-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.

Ndombele has earned 7 senior caps for the France national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.

He is out of the picture at Tottenham, which has opened the door for a potential exit.

Roma are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 25-year-old as potential transfer target. They have built a reputation for recruiting talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.

AS Roma are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

The former Lyon man would provide a good variety to Roma’s midfield.

According to the report, “Roma are being linked with Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. Gazzetta dello Sport says Roma are interested in the France international. This despite his tense relationship with Roma coach Jose Mourinho at Spurs. Roma want to take Ndombele on-loan for the remainder of the season, though Spurs would prefer an outright sale. Tottenham want €30m to sell the midfielder, who isn’t in the plans of manager Antonio Conte. A compromise could be struck if Roma agree to an obligatory permanent option at Spurs’ asking price.”

The Italian giants will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Ndombele to join the club. They have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the France international.

It is claimed that Tottenham are open to letting Ndombele go.

Good signing for Roma?

If Ndombele is available on-loan, then he could be a clever acquisition for Roma. A loan deal holds minimal risk and has the potential to offer handsome rewards.

Tanguy Ndombele has all the skillset required to be a success story at Roma. Therefore, it makes sense for Jose Mourinho to step up his attempts to bring the France midfielder to Serie A side.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Roma.

If Mourinho sees him as the right man for his side, Roma should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
