Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has been linked with a move away from the London club for months now, and it appears that former manager Jose Mourinho is willing to provide him with an exit route.

According to a report from Daily Mail, the AS Roma manager has called up the midfielder personally in a bid to convince him to join the Italian club.

Apparently, Mourinho is desperate for midfield reinforcements, and he believes that the 25-year-old Frenchman could be a quality acquisition for Roma.

Mourinho has worked with Ndombele during their time together at Tottenham, and he knows the player well. The Frenchman needs regular first-team football at this stage of his career, and a reunion with Mourinho could help him resurrect his career.

The Portuguese manager rates the Frenchman highly, and it will be interesting to see if Roma can agree on a deal with Tottenham in the coming weeks.

The Premier League side value the player at £25 million, but the Italian outfit are looking to sign him on a loan deal with an option to buy.

Ndombele has fallen down the pecking order under Antonio Conte, and he was recently booed off the pitch by the Tottenham fans.

It is evident that his time at the London club is up, and he needs to move on in order to continue his development and fulfil his potential. A move to the Italian league could be the fresh start he needs right now.

Ndombele is only 25, and he has a lot of time to continue his development and join a big club in future.

A move to Roma at this stage of his career seems like a wise option, and it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds over the next few weeks.
