Tottenham's most expensive signing in the history of Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham's most expensive signing in the history of Tottenham Hotspur is Tanguy Ndombele (27).

"The most expensive signing in Tottenham's history is the 62 million euros ($91.1 million) that the club paid for Ndombele in 2019 when he joined from Olympique Lyonnais," TottenhamHQ reported on Nov. 21. That deal was worth €70 million with options.

It is likely that Ndombele will be released by Tottenham at the end of the season. "Ndombele, who will end his loan spell at Galatasaray, will return to Tottenham in the upcoming summer pre-season," the British outlet The Boot reported on the same day, adding, "Tottenham will want to get rid of him. They will release him."

Tottenham had high hopes for Ndombele. He had caught the eye of Pep Guardiola after a stellar performance against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League. However, Ndombele has struggled to adapt to the Premier League and has been criticized for his complacent defending and up-and-down performances.

Most of all, he was criticized for his lack of discipline. In early 2022, Ndombele was sent off against Morecambe with his team trailing 0-1. Every minute was wasted, 토토사이트 but he walked off slowly, angering the fans. Jose Mourinho publicly criticized him, saying that he "can't give him any more chances" while coaching him.

Ndombele has bounced around on loan, but it hasn't been fruitful. He spent the second half of the 2021-2022 season at his hometown club Lyon and the 2022-2023 season at Napoli, but both times he failed to secure a permanent move. He returned to Tottenham ahead of this season.

However, he left the club once again after being excluded from Postecoglou's system. He went on loan to Galatasaray.

Ndombele's move to Galatasaray also came with an outright release clause, but according to The Boot Room, that clause was never triggered. He will return to Tottenham at the end of the season.

"Ndombele is surprisingly still on Tottenham's roster," says The Bootroom, "and he will return to Spurs for the upcoming summer pre-season. But Tottenham will surely release him. The problem is that it's hard to find a team that wants Ndombele, who is under contract until the summer of 2025."
