Paper round-up: Barcelona linked with Ndombele

Barcelona are interested in Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, according to the Daily Mirror.

The France international – Spurs’ record signing – has endured a difficult first season in north London since arriving from Lyon and has faced criticism from boss Jose Mourinho.

And the Mirror say Barcelona are monitoring him ahead of a possible move.

Barca director of football Eric Abidal is said to be a huge admirer of Ndombele, who has made 27 appearances for Spurs to date.

Meanwhile, Chelsea continue to be linked with goalkeepers amid speculation over the future of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Reports have suggested that Spanish keeper Kepa could be sold this summer after being dropped by boss Frank Lampard.

Several keepers have been touted as a possible replacement, including Burnley’s England international Nick Pope and Bournemouth youngster Aaron Ramsdale.

AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma (pictured) has also been linked with Chelsea – and the Daily Express say the Blues are willing to pay £60m in order to sign him.

The Daily Mail, meanwhile, reports that Donnarumma has insisted he is committed to Milan, where his contract is due to expire in 2021.

“The Rossoneri colours mean a lot to me, because I grew up here. I have always been a Milan fan and I can’t help but give my best for this shirt,” he is quoted as saying.

Chelsea have also been linked with a move for Espanyol midfielder Nico.

The Express have picked up on reports claiming that Chelsea are among top European clubs looking to snap up the 18-year-old.
