ANTONIO CONTE is said to be eyeing Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat as a replacement for Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso at Tottenham.
Both Alli and Lo Celso are said to be leaving Spurs this month, with sales also expected by the January 31 deadline.
One of those people could be Amrabat, 25, with negotiations ongoing over a loan move, according to Evening Standard.
Although elsewhere reported in Italy hinted that a deal had been reached, with a purchase option of £12.5m.
It claims all that remains is for Amrabat himself to sign on the move.
Amrabat joined Fiorentina from Hellas Verona last season and was a regular midfielder in his debut campaign.
But he has only started one league game since the summer, and is unpopular at the club.
He performed better in the international arena, starting for Morocco in a 2-1 win over Malawi on Tuesday night to help secure their spot in the Afcon quarterfinals.
That only leaves Harry Winks, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp as Conte’s picks in the middle of the park.
So the Italian is looking to add Amrabat to help strengthen his midfield.
Alli has been linked with a move to Newcastle After the 0-2 defeat to Chelsea, Lo Celso was also left out of the squad.
The Argentinian is also said to be redundant to the requirements in North London.
Ndombele meanwhile had been rumored to be returning to France as part of the Swaps involving Georginio Wijnaldum.
