Tottenham looking to finally put to bed a transfer nightmare they have been dealing with.

Tottenham can finally sell Tanguy Ndombele this summer after details emerged that Napoli were seriously looking at making his loan deal permanent. The French man was one of Mauricio Pochettino’s last signings and even though he showed glimpses of brilliance, he’d just never able to get to reach the level Spurs desired consistently.

Three managers including Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte all tried to get him firing on all cylinders but none of them really got it together and he was loaned back to Lyon for the second half of last season and Napoli this campaign.

He seems to have turned heads in Naples and the club have been impressed with his output and application leading to talks of possibly triggering his £30 million permanent sale value that was included in the loan deal.

According to Football Insider, Tottenham inserted a compulsory buy clause of £30 million for the midfielder if they secured Champions League football and there is every chance they achieve that given how they have started the season.

Ndombele has made a total of 91 appearances for Spurs but his place in north London has been taken by the ever impressive Rodrigo Bentancur in the heart of midfield and Spurs have recently bought Yves Bissouma as they look to cement top four and go as far as they can in the Champions League.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is yet to sign a contract extension but there is growing optimism that he will if he is backed with the board ready to at least give him another summer transfer window to knock the team into the shape he desires.
