Daily Express reporter Ryan Taylor insists Tottenham Hotspur director of football Fabio Paratici is working on a swap deal which would see Tanguy Ndombele leave the club.
The midfielder has been heavily linked with a potential departure from the north London club this month as French giants PSG are reportedly interested in a deal to sign him on loan.
What’s up with Spurs?
They look set for a busy final week of the transfer window.
The club are close to signing Adama Traore from Wolves, making him their first signing of the window in the process.
There is also said to be interest in Angers teenager Mohamed Ali-Cho, while the club are also considering signing a midfielder should Ndombele leave, per fabrice romano.
It remains to be seen exactly how Tottenham will secure deals like this, but there could potentially be a deal done that sees Ndombele join a club in exchange for another player.
Indeed, 90min have reported that two PSG players, Georginio Wijnaldum and Julian Draxler, are both interested in moving to Tottenham in exchange if Ndombele ends up in the French capital.
And Taylor has revealed the club are currently working to secure such a deal before next week’s transfer deadline.
What did Taylor say?
Speaking to GiveMeSport, he said: “I know that Paratici is currently working on them (swap deals) for Ndombele.”

Does that make sense?
Ndombele is a broken color at Spurs, very clearly.
After being booed in the FA Cup clash with Morecambe when substituted, he hasn’t been involved with the team since, being left out completely against Leicester City and Chelsea.
Now the midfielder looks destined to leave the club and if that means Spurs can bring in his replacement at the same time as moving him around, that makes total sense in the world.
Whether he moves to PSG remains to be seen, but if he does, a deal to bring in Wijnaldum or Draxler at the same time would go a long way to filling the void in the squad.
Spurs fans have to hope Paratici can make such a move in the coming days as it could end up being a masterstroke.
