Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has suddenly emerged as the newest transfer target for Inter Milan. A report explains the reasons behind this sudden pursuit.

As we reported earlier today, the Nerazzurri could even land two midfielders before the market closes its door on Friday night. The club could sign both Ndombele and Maxime Lopez.

The Sassuolo midfielder would serve as a backup for Hakan Calhanoglu in the deep playmaker role.

But as Il Corriere dello Sport (via FcInterNews) explains, Inter would still need some physical presence in the middle of the mark. This is why the club is pursuing Ndombele.

The Spurs outcast is an energetic box-to-box midfielder blessed with strong physical attributes.

The Roman newspaper notes that Simone Inzaghi’s midfield department lacks an imposing physical presence at the moment.

With Marcelo Brozovic and Roberto Gagliardini both gone, the Inter manager doesn’t have a single midfielder whose height is above 180 cm.

Thus, The Nerazzurri will be looking to sign Ndombele from Tottenham on loan with the option to buy.

The North Londoners could accept this formula since the 26-year-old isn’t part of their technical project. Therefore, they will arguably be desperate to offload him before the expiry of the transfer session.

The French midfielder rose to fame during his time at Lyon. This earned him a mega-money move to the Spurs in 2019.

Nevertheless, his career has been on the decline ever since. Last season, he spent his campaign on loan at Napoli, mostly serving as a benchwarmer.
