Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is a shock target for Barcelona this summer with the Spanish giants hoping to rescue him from his nightmare spell in north London, according to reports from Spain.
The Frenchman became the club's record signing when he joined from Lyon in a £65million deal this season, and while he has shown glimpses of his ability, he has struggled for fitness and has been criticised for his work rate.
Ndombele went viral after a supporter captured his lethargic display in a defeat to Wolves when he was seen barely attempting to track back and help the team, and in the following game against Norwich he was hauled off at half time by Jose Mourinho.
