Ndombele had a tough very first year at Spurs after signing up with in a club-record relocation last summer season and rapidly fell nasty of Mourinho following the Portuguese's arrival at the club.

The clock is ticking on the transfer window and all eyes will be on whether Alli is still at the club after 5th October. He concedes that Tottenham are unlikely to enter into talks with a direct rival, but Arsenal could ask questions amid their ongoing efforts to bring another goal-scoring midfielder into their ranks. The former coach said, "I think Gareth Bale's come to win trophies for Tottenham, I think [Heung-min] Son is another one who wants to win something for Tottenham". I've always said they are lacking goals from midfield.

Mourinho has actually been impressed with Ndombele's response to being out of the group and has actually prompted other gamers in a comparable position, consisting of Dele Alli, to value the minutes they get. I'm trying to think what he would be worth.

"I certainly believe that he's got a lot of good years left in him as a player, so £50m has got to be the marker".

"One thing about Arsenal is I think they're lacking goals from central midfield areas, so I think he could tick that box especially, " Ray Parlour explained according to the report on UK Sun.
Whether he could get more under Arteta, I don't know.

Jose Mourinho is reshaping the team to compete for honours once more, but Spurs have fallen away significantly in the 16 months since they reached a European final in Madrid, sacking Mauricio Pochettino since then and finishing outside the top four last term.

"Arsenal fans would be pretty happy because you're getting a quality player off your rivals".

It will be interesting to see if Spurs can convince Benfica to let the Swiss striker join them on a loan deal for the remainder of this season.
