Paratici traveled to Italy this week to hold talks with Roma about Conte’s interest in Zaniolo’s potential summer transfer. But the Spurs boss is only testing the waters for his move before stepping up attempts to find potential new homes for Moura and Ndombele.

Ndombele also fell out of favor at Spurs following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo, with the Frenchman appearing for 80 minutes in just three out of ten possible Premier League games under Conte. He left north London in January to join Lyon on loan until the summer.
