Tanguy NDombele is considering his future amid interest from Barcelona.
The £54million signing from Lyon is unsettled at Tottenham and is open to discussing a potential move.
Barcelona are understood to have spoken about the 23-year old earlier this month but, strapped for cash and with Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez their transfer priority, they would prefer to offer players in exchange.

Despite being valued at £2.6billion, Tottenham are likely to be working with a limited budget for the next transfer window and would prefer to recoup their money on Ndombele should they agree to sell.
They have discussed some potential signings including PSG full back Thomas Meunier who will be a free agent this summer.
It comes as Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo says he has no intention of leaving the club for Tottenham after reports Ndombele could be swapped with the Brazilian.

Sportsmail revealed that Tottenham have not made an offer and would want a different style midfielder to fill any void left by Ndombele while Arthur is adamant his future lies in Spain.
‘There’ll always be rumours, but I’m honestly really clear about the fact that the only option I’m interested in is staying at Barcelona, I’m really sure and relaxed about it,’ he said.
‘I feel very much at home here and thank the club and the coaching staff for the faith they’ve placed in me. That’s yet another reason that makes me totally certain that all I want to do is stay here.’
