Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tanguy Ndombele’s move to Napoli is now close to completion. 

Ndombele has been frozen out of first-team training by Antonio Conte since returning to Spurs this summer for pre-season on the back of his loan spell at Lyon during the second half of last year.

Foot Mercato revealed last week that the likes of Villarreal, Napoli, Marseille, Real Betis, Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest, Everton, Bayer Leverkusen, and AC Milan had explored a move for the midfielder this summer.

However, over recent days, Napoli have emerged as the favourites for the Frenchman’s signature, with the Serie A club said to be in talks with Spurs over singing the player on loan with an option to buy (Gianluca Di Marzio). 

Romano has now taken to social media to reveal that Spurs have accepted Napoli’s proposal of signing Ndombele on a season-long loan deal for a loan fee of €1m (£840,000). 

He added that Luciano Spalletti’s side will have an option to make the deal permanent for €30m (£25.3m), with the final details now allegedly being sorted out between the two clubs.

Hopefully, Ndombele fares better at Napoli than he did at Lyon during the second half of last season. One would think that the added motivation of trying to make a late surge towards the France squad for the World Cup, should be enough to bring the best out of the 25-year-old at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
