Here is your Tottenham Hotspur morning digest for Sunday, August 2.
Ndombele transfer stance
Tottenham Hotspur have no intention of selling Tanguy Ndombele this summer despite a tough first season in the Premier League, football.london understands.
The 23-year-old Frenchman has been linked with moves to Barcelona, Bayern Munich and most recently to Inter Milan, with plenty of swap deals mooted.
Ndombele started just 17 matches in his first season in England after his club record move from Lyon, struggling with niggling injuries and surrounded by questions over his impact at the club.
However, football.london understands that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is not looking to sell Ndombele this summer and that head coach Jose Mourinho believes the player can be a world class asset but just needs time to adapt to a new country after moving away from his family.
Coutinho is told join Arsenal instead of Tottenham
Dimitar Berbatov believes that Philippe Coutinho would be a better fit for Arsenal than his old side Tottenham Hotspur.
The 28-year-old has been linked with both north London clubs as his time at Barcelona, after a loan at Bayern Munich, comes to an end.
A season-long loan from the Catalan side, worth GBP27million including a fee and wages, has been mooted.
But Berbatov believes the red of the Gunners will suit Coutinho better than the white of his old club down Seven Sisters Road.

Parrott’s first words after joining Millwall on loan
Tottenham Hotspur striker Troy Parrott has joined Championship club Millwall on a season-long loan for the 2020/21 campaign.
The 18-year-old has broken into the first team at Spurs this season, but has made just four first team appearances, with two of them coming in the Premier League.
The Republic of Ireland international has had a prolific season at youth level, scoring six times in four UEFA Youth League appearances, three times in his two Premier League 2 appearances and twice in his one FA Youth Cup appearance.
That form has prompted teams to show an interest in taking the forward on a temporary contract ahead of next season.
It was confirmed on Saturday that in a search for more first-team experience, Parrott has joined Millwall, a club that Harry Kane played at during a loan spell away from Tottenham.
