Tottenham and Napoli reach agreement for Ndombele transfer


Tottenham Hotspur and Napoli have reached an agreement for the transfer of French international Tanguy Ndombele, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Ndombele joined the north London side for a club-record £65million in the summer of 2019 from Lyon, but has failed to deliver the consistency and quality promised by his fee.


After struggling to impress under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte, the French international spent the second half of the 2021-22 season on loan at former club Lyon, and now looks set for a further spell away from the club.

Ndombele reportedly attracted from the likes of Villareal and Newcastle but now looks set to join Italian side Napoli.

According to Fabrizio, Napoli director Giuntoli met with Ndombele agents in Paris to discuss personal terms and hoping to close the loan deal soon.


The player himself had hinted he would like to stay at Spurs as he thinks it would be ‘possible’ to be happy at Tottenham.

‘Yes, I think it’s possible to be happy at Tottenham,’ he told Media Carre, ‘regardless of where you can go, you can be happy or unhappy.

‘We’ll see how things go during pre-season. I’m not putting any more pressure on myself than that.’

Reflecting on what may lie ahead for him, he added: ‘What I want is to be happy, take pleasure in what I do, play, win, that’s all I want.’

In 91 games at Tottenham across three seasons, Ndombele has managed 10 goals and nine assists, and has made seven senior appearances for France.
