Sevilla are interested in signing Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele in January, according to reports in Spain.
Ndombele was repeatedly left out of the squad in the early part of the season but has since emerged as a regular starter in the Premier League.
However, doubts remain over the Frenchman’s long-term future at Spurs, whose resolve could be tested in January if a recent story is to be believed.
Spanish outlet Fichajes claims Sevilla are set to make a move for Ndombele when the winter transfer window comes around.
It is believed Tottenham want somewhere between €35-45 million for the 24-year-old if they are to sell him midway through the season.
So, should the Londoners consider a sale?
From our point of view, it would be crazy to let Ndombele leave in January, particularly if Nuno Espirito Santo is still in charge.
With the current tactical approach, Ndombele often looks like the only player capable of unlocking the opposition defence, so losing him would be disastrous.
That said, if Nuno is sacked before January – which is as likely as it is unlikely – then a new manager may be able to find a way to create chances without Ndombele.
