Mauricio Pochettino has admitted he does not want to discuss any rumours of Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in signing Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, writes the SpursWeb.
The Frenchman has been tipped to join the Parisiens this month, with talks ongoing regarding a potential loan deal with an option to buy at the end of the season (The Guardian).
Ndombele’s Spurs career was plunged into major doubt in the FA Cup third-round win over Morecambe, when he was booed by fans for labouring off the pitch when his side was trailing (Mirror).
Sky Sports revealed Spurs held talks over the next move for the midfielder, with the club hoping to recoup the majority of the £54 million fee shelled out to Lyon in 2019.
While a potential move to PSG would see the 25-year-old link back up with Pochettino, who initially signed him for Spurs, the Argentine coach has played down his side’s interest.
He said in a press conference today, via French journalist Hadrien Grenier: “I don’t like to talk about rumours and players who are not in our club. We have high-quality players, the club has done a great job this summer.
“The transfer window is open. The club is listening and seeing what’s going on.”
🗣 Mauricio Pochettino sur Tanguy Ndombélé 🇫🇷 : “Je n’aime pas parler des rumeurs et des joueurs qui ne sont pas dans notre club. Nous avons des joueurs de grande qualité, le club a fait un grand travail cet été. Le mercato est ouvert. Le club écoute et voit ce qu’il se passe.”
