Napoli and Tottenham have reached an agreement for Tanguy Ndombele to move to Italy on loan with an option to buy.
That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, who reports the deal is now close to being completed after Napoli manager Cristiano Giuntoli met the midfielder’s agents in Paris to discuss the personal terms, which have been agreed.
It’s the best option Spurs had to leave with the player as the market was very slim for the Frenchman after his time in London and his recent loan spell at Lyon.

Napoli are looking to replace outgoing Fabian Ruiz, who appears set to join Paris Saint-Germain after agreeing personal terms with the French club, the Daily Mail reports.
Ndombele is hoping to revive his career in Italy and regain the form that earned him his move to Tottenham.
The 25-year-old was never really in Antonio Conte’s plans and still has a contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until 2025.
This loan move is very important for the Frenchman’s career as it could give him a second chance at Spurs but if not, he will at least draw clubs’ attention towards the midfield rather than away from him.
