The biggest question concerning Tottenham Hotspur’s outgoing business revolves around Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele. Both players have been declared as not in Antonio Conte’s plans, and both are on long-term contracts at Spurs, which makes them difficult to shift.

Gio, however, is coming off of a very successful loan at Villarreal where he helped take them to the Champions League semifinals. It’s been pretty clearly established that the Yellow Submarine would like to bring Gio back again this season, but Villarreal also doesn’t have a whole lot of money and negotiations have been difficult.
