Tottenham Hotspur’s Tanguy Ndombele has ended up in the sights of both Lazio and AS Roma this summer, according to claims from Italy.
Radio Radio have a report stating that the two Serie A sides are looking to swoop in for the midfielder this summer.
The 25-year-old wasn’t included in Antonio Conte’s plans and that forced him to join Lyon on a loan deal in January.
The Ligue 1 side had an option to make his stay permanent, but have decided not to exercise it.
However, in Italy, Maurizio Sarri and José Mourinho, the managers of the two Rome rival clubs, appreciate the Frenchman’s profile, and Italian journalist Enrico Camelio has provided more information on these two clubs’ plans for the Tottenham player.
“We received a message around 1.30 am from a London source, and informed us of the interest of Rome and Lazio in the midfielder,” Camelio told Radio Radio.
“We then crossed paths, certainly finding confirmations on the Biancocelesti, while we are working on the Giallorossi. Mourinho wants a powerful player and he is the ideal figure. He would come on loan.”
Meanwhile, Teleradiostereo journalist Flavio Tassotti took to Twitter to explain that there has been no concrete contact between Roma and Tottenham for Ndombele.
#Ndombele: nessun contatto concreto tra #ASRoma e #Tottenham, ma gli #Spurs sono intenzionati a cedere il francese, anche in prestito (seppur con formule "particolari"). I londinesi sanno dell'apprezzamento di #Mourinho e aspettano cenni da Trigoria. @Teleradiostereo pic.twitter.com/vlWEvedPRd

The north London club are ‘willing to sell’ the player this summer.
They are also ready to let him go out on loan, but on their terms.
Spurs are waiting for signs from Roma to make an approach as they aware that Mourinho appreciates the former Lyon man.
