Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is the latest player to be linked with a move to Barcelona as football’s rumor mill continues to churn.

The 23-year-old finds himself on the front page of Thursday’s Mundo Deportivo with a report that the club are looking for a bit of muscle in midfield.

The report states Barcelona are after a versatile midfielder who could take the place of the outgoing Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic.

Ndombele only arrived at Spurs in July 2019 but has already come in for criticism from manager Jose Mourinho which suggests a summer departure could be on the cards.

Yet MD also reckon that Fabian Ruiz remains an option for Barcelona this summer, although Napoli are believed to value him at €100m which makes a move unlikely.
