Barcelona offer Umtiti, Semedo to Spurs for Ndombele

Barcelona are launching a multi-player swap offer for Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

Sky Sports says Barcelona want to sign Ndombele and have offered players to Tottenham in the hope of striking a part-exchange deal.

Barca want to bring more physicality into their midfield and are targeting Spurs' £54m record signing despite his difficult first season in the Premier League.

The Spanish club are unlikely to be able to afford to buy him due to the financial impact of coronavirus, so they have offered Spurs the chance to sign centre-back Samuel Umtiti and right-back Nelson Semedo.

It has been reported elsewhere that Spurs – like Inter Milan – have an interest in Barca midfielder Arthur, but head coach Jose Mourinho is hoping to bring in a more physical, defensive-midfielder to his team this summer.
