Everton are ‘in the running’ for Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele but face competition from Bayer Leverkusen and Valencia.

That’s according to RMC Sport, who say the midfielder wants to make a ‘quick decision’ about his future after holding out for a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Ndombele is currently out of favour at Tottenham, having found himself as the focus of fans disappointment in recent weeks.

That saw him booed off the pitch by some of the home faithful not long ago, something that was seen as a sign he may need a move elsewhere.

There are options for him, but it was felt that PSG was the club he really wanted, so other moves had been put to one side for the time being.

With the window nearing its conclusion, though, it seems he has had a change of heart and is now looking at what’s available to him.

RMC Sport report that given the ‘difficulty of the dossier’ to take him to Paris, Ndombele has now decided he wants to make a ‘quick decision’ on his future and move elsewhere.

Everton, Bayer Leverkusen and Valencia are ‘among the clubs in the running’ for his signature, so PSG will have to move quickly if they want to conclude a deal.

Everton’s interest makes sense given their problems in midfield and the recent injury to Abdoulaye Doucoure, which has further left them short in the position.

On the other hand, it’s hard to see Ndombele being the man to fix that problem, particularly given the reason he’s being criticised at Tottenham.

That perceived lack of effort or care would not go down well at Goodison Park, and Everton might want to think twice before they move any further on the Frenchman.
