Graham Roberts has urged Tottenham to ditch both Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele – and replace them with a ball-playing midfielder.
Do Tottenham need to sign another CB this summer?
Ndombele had plenty of opportunities under Jose Mourinho last season, although Lo Celso has spent much of his time in north London on the treatment table.
Both players are currently fit and available at present, but neither appear to be in Nuno Espirito Santo’s plans having failed to start a Premier League game between them, with the Frenchman yet to be involved in any first-team fixture under the Portuguese.
Ndombele has been linked with Bayern Munich recently, but Tottenham rejected their approach according to Sky Sports, whilst Lo Celso doesn’t look likely to be moved on before the window shuts.
“If we sell those two players, we will get near on £70m-£80m and go and get a decent midfield player that can pick people out and turn people. That’s what we’re looking for, we’re looking for someone that can pass a decent ball.”
