Liverpool are interested in Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, according to French outlet FootMercato.

The report states that Liverpool’s interest in Ndombele could be a “game-changer” for the midfielder, as he has struggled at Spurs.

Ndombele signed for Tottenham for a transfer fee of £53.8 million back in 2019.

In Ndombele’s 27 appearances for the club in all competitions this season, he has only scored two goals and registered four assists, which does back up the argument that he has struggled. Injuries have been an issue for Ndombele.

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho has stated that he expects more from Ndombele, as he has quality. The report states that the club could move the Frenchman on.

The report adds that Liverpool’s interest in Ndombele is not new, as it dates back to last year.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

Ndombele would be a terrific signing for Liverpool, and I’ll explain why.

Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas believes that Ndombele is good enough to play for Paris Saint-Germain, and they are a club that possess some of the best players in the world such as Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

If Aulas believes that Ndombele is good enough to play alongside the likes of Mbappe and Neymar, then it does provide an insight into the talent that the midfielder possesses, which is why he would be a good signing for the Reds.

You can never have too many good players in your squad.

However, it was published yesterday by the Evening Standard that Tottenham do intend on keeping Ndombele beyong this season, despite the fact that he has been linked with a move to Liverpool.

That does suggest that Liverpool will not be signing the 23-year-old.
