Ndombele is reportedly training on his own at the moment, with Antonio Conte allegedly not viewing the midfielder as part of his plans (Athletic).
The likes of Juventus, AS Roma and Napoli have been credited with an interest in the midfielder (Calcio Mercato).
L’Equipe have now revealed that Ndombele finds himself in a ‘complex situation’ as his position at the club has started to ‘deteriorate’ since Conte’s arrival.
It is said that Tottenham’s decision to move on the midfielder now ‘seems clear’.
The report goes on to add that while Daniel Levy would prefer to sell the Frenchman permanently, a loan move could be the most realistic option this month.
However, it is explained that Ndombele’s high salary would pose a problem for Italian clubs.
L’Equipe suggest that the solution could thus come from Spain, with Barcelona holding an interest in the midfielder and Atletico Madrid sporting director Andrea Berta also being a fan of the 25-year-old.

Even if one of Europe’s big guns (like Juve, Barca or Atletico) want to sign Ndombele on loan, Spurs would likely still have to subsidise a significant part of his wages. I cannot see any of those clubs paying the midfielder’s full salary.
