Antonio Conte has set his sights on Roma‘s Jordan Veretout as he looks to bring the Frenchman to London.

The Tottenham coach has turned his attention to Serie A and, in particular, Veretout with a view to landing the centre-midfielder this January.

As a consequence, the Giallorossi would ideally like to open up a swap deal with Tanguy Ndombele in order to replace the 28-year-old Veretout, but Tottenham’s valuation of their player is too high, according to Il Messaggero.

Ndombele, 25, moved to London in 2019 in a €60 million deal from Ligue 1 club, Lyon, and is seen as too expensive to simply swap for Veretout, without additional fees being included.

Veretout, on the other hand, has been with Roma since making a €16 million move from Fiorentina in September 2020.
