Tottenham midfielder Ndombele shock target for Barcelona

Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is a shock target for Barcelona.

Mundo Deportivo says Barca have placed the France international on their summer shopping list, indeed some inside the club say he is a priority target. This despite him falling out with manager Jose Mourinho earlier this month.

Barca want to overhaul their midfield - and club chiefs believe Ndombele can strengthen their options.

A €60m arrival from Lyon last summer, Barca management believe they can sign the player for a knockdown fee given the tension with Mourinho.

After their 1-1 draw with Burnley, Mourinho said: “He's a player with great talent and has to know he has to do much better and know I cannot keep giving him opportunities to play because the team is much more important than the players, and the players must be on the pitch as a consequence of their performance.

"This is performance-level football."
