Tottenham Hotspur wants to move from Tanguy Ndombele, but the transaction is easier said than done. There’s been plenty of interest for the 25-year-old, but his wages are a sticking point. However, the north London club might have a lifeline.
According to The Athletic, Spurs are in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a possible deal that would include Ndombele. One deal that’s reported is a loan agreement for the remainder of the season; the other is a potential swap deal.
RMC Sport‘s Loïc Tanzi is one of the journalists confirming that a swap agreement between the clubs was one that table.
The French football reporter states that Spurs would like midfielder Leandro Paredes should a swap deal occur, but Tanzi does add that the Argentine has no intention of departing Paris.
Depending on how badly Tottenham wants Paredes, they’ll have to sell him on the idea of heading to north London. This is where they might lean on Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero to convince their compatriot.
Nonetheless, if a loan is the route both sides take to get this deal done, Tottenham wants the Ligue 1 side to take 100-percent responsibility for Ndombele’s wages. A move back to France would see the midfielder return to his hometown as he was raised in the suburbs of the French capital.
