REPORT: Inter Milan in Talks to Sign Tanguy Ndombele

Inter to Offer Ndombele Escape Route

Ndombele, 23, joined Tottenham from Ligue 1 side, Lyon, for a club-record £55m last summer.

He has endured a tricky first season in North-London, not helped by the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino. Ndombele’s time under Jose Mourinho hasn’t worked out very well so far.

He has started in just 12 of Tottenham’s 38 Premier League games this season. Ndombele has featured just twice since football returned after lockdown.

Despite the manager giving his backing for a turnaround in form, the French midfielder is subject to interest from Inter Milan.

The Serie A side have opened talks with Tottenham, who value Ndombele at £45 million. However, Inter Milan are not thought to be willing to pay such a transfer fee.

There is a possibility of a swap deal taking place – with Milan Skriniar viewed as a possible replacement for Jan Vertonghen, who’s contract recently expired.

The two clubs share a good relationship after Christian Eriksen made the move to San Siro in January.

Keeping an Eye on Perisic

Jose Mourinho tried to sign Ivan Perisic for Manchester United during his time at Old Trafford. It appears he is monitoring the Croatian midfielder’s situation once again.

Perisic remains an Inter Milan player, though has been on loan at Bayern Munich – who are favourites to sign him permanently. The Bundesliga champions had an option to buy in their season-long loan deal, however that has expired.

Perisic has had a good spell in Germany, with 16 goal contributions in 31 games.

Elsewhere, they remain in talks to sign Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton but have been told they have no chance of signing Nicolo Zaniolo from Roma.
