Tottenham Hotspur opinion: Spurs should offload Georges-Kevin N’Koudou
According to a report in Football.London, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is about to leave Tottenham Hostpur for Turkey with Besiktas being the interested party. The Frenchman hasn’t really got a proper chance his since move to Spurs in 2016 from Ligue 1 side Marseille.
He joined the club with a lot of promise, having appeared for France at various youth levels and was seen as someone who would fit in with the approach taken by Spurs, which was trying to buy young players with a lot of potential to develop under a manager who will allow for that in Pochettino but it’s simply not taken shape.
N’Koudou is now 24 and needs to be playing football regularly and has lost a lot of important years in his development, having not even made the matchday squads on most occasions. In his three years at the club he’s only made 27 appearances, which is simply not enough.
He has had loan spells at the likes of Burnley and Monaco, which unfortunately did not go very well either. N’Koudou is an inverted winger who usually plays on the left-wing and tries to beat his man to create chances or take a chance on goal.
He’s unfortunately only scored one goal during his time at Spurs and did not manage many appearances or output in his loan spells either. Spurs haven’t always had the best windows in recent years with the likes of Vincent Janssen and N’Koudou going under the radar a little as signings that have simply not worked out.
Besiktas will be hoping that they can get the player who scored 10 goals for Marseille and registered 5 assists in his 41 appearances when he was just stepping into men’s football. For Spurs, it’s time to cut their losses short with the European summer transfer window about to close.
Spurs have had a very unusual start to their campaign after not really playing very well over 90 minutes in both their games but coming off with 4 points. They weren’t very good against Villa but got away with the 3 points with a late surge after getting dominated for 70 minutes.

Similarly, they were very poor against Manchester City but still came off with a point after being extremely clinical with the 2 shots that they took. They’ll need to do better against Newcastle on the weekend.
