It appears that the idea of Paris Saint-Germain wanting to get Tanguy Ndombélé on loan this January has some legs to it.
It emerged in England, and it has now been backed up in France, with L’Equipe bringing their own take on the matter.
The player, who first made a name for himself in Ligue 1 at Amiens and then Lyon, has had his ups and downs at Tottenham ever since making the jump across the Channel in 2019.
He struggled to get along with José Mourinho at first, although that appears to have now been solved, but the same issues have crept up again with Antonio Conte since his arrival.
The seven time capped France international still has a market in Europe, however, and it could be that Daniel Levy takes advantage of this in the coming days to get rid of some clear tension between manager and player within the squad.
L’Equipe explain that Paris Saint-Germain are ‘pushing’ to get the player this month, and Leonardo ‘has started talks’ to achieve his goal.
The idea here would be a ‘loan with a view to buy’, but it’s also made very clear that the whole affair could be ‘complicated’.
Down the player’s end, it’s made clear the former Lyon player is ‘interested’ and is also ‘pushing’ down his end to make the ‘Parisian solution’ happen.
This is further backed up by RMC Sport journalist Loïc Tanzi, who has tweeted that there are ‘talks about a loan with an option to buy’, as well as a ‘hypothesis of a swap’, but it’s a bit ‘difficult to find a player on the Parisian side’.
On top of that, Mauricio Pochettino has ‘validated’ the idea of bringing in Ndombélé, with Spurs wanting 100% of the wages being paid by the Ligue 1 club.
