It’s fair to say Tanguy Ndombele has had a roller-coaster of a season at Tottenham this year.
The Frenchman joined the north London side from Lyon last summer, and after enjoying a stunning goal-scoring debut in the Premier League, has seen his form and fitness go downhill.
The midfielder has played just 19 times in the top-flight, whilst he has come under scathing public criticism from current Spurs manager Jose Mourinho.
Reports in recent days and weeks had suggested Barcelona are interested in ending his Spurs nightmare, but now, according to French publication Foot Mercato, Premier League rivals Liverpool are keen on taking him to Anfield.
And after hearing about the Reds’ surprise interest in the midfielder, Spurs fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the situation.
let’s give them ndombele & mourinho and take klopp

That has to be the best one so far, loaning our record signing to Liverpool, imagine thinking this might even be 0.1% true

A couple of fans jokingly suggested Liverpool offer the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in return for Ndombele.
Swap for salah and mane you’ve got a deal 😂
— G. Stoodley-Randall (@GSR270194) May 9, 2020
OK 150m + salah, Allison, van dijk, fabhino and lallana

What a turn of development this is.
Reigning Champions League holders, and Premier League leaders Liverpool are interested in taking Ndombele to Merseyside this summer. If anything, the Reds’ interest in the Frenchman just goes to show that there is still a highly-rated player there, and that Spurs would be foolish to cut their losses on him just a year into his arrival.
Whether Liverpool are genuinely in the running to sign him or not however, remains to be seen.
