Barcelona ‘contact Tottenham Hotspur over Ndombele, Sessegnon swap deals’

Barcelona have reportedly made contact with Tottenham Hotspur over proposed player-plus-cash deals for Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon.
Ndombele is supposedly on Barcelona’s radar after a tumultuous maiden campaign in North London, with the French midfielder having played just 19 minutes of football since the restart.

Meanwhile, Sessegnon has had his fair share of injury woes following his arrival from Fulham last summer, but as is the case with Ndombele, Sessegnon has struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho this term.

According to the Evening Standard, Barca are eyeing up a swoop for the out-of-favour Spurs duo despite the financial concerns arising from the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the report also claims that Mourinho has already blocked Barca’s approach for the 20-year-old Sessegnon, while the Lilywhites are not prepared to discuss Ndombele’s future at this time.

Should Spurs agree to a part-exchange deal for one or both players, Nelson Semedo, Samuel Umtiti, Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho have been mentioned as potential makeweights on Barcelona’s side.
