A move for Amrabat has been complicated slightly by the player’s representation, but that has not put off Tottenham trying to act on Conte’s advice.
Wolves have been hanging on for a fee closer to £20m for Traore, having rejected a first Tottenham bid of £15m, and Spurs are increasingly optimistic that an agreement will be reached.
Paratici and chairman Daniel Levy face an extremely busy few days with Tottenham also working hard to try to offload players before the transfer window shuts next Monday night.
It appears the club’s only hope of finding a new home for club record signing Ndombele will be to loan him to PSG, with the player only interested in linking up with his old manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Ndombele is ready to reject any other proposals, which leaves Spurs needing to find an agreement with PSG. There is not thought to be any realistic chance of a swap deal with the players the PSG would let go and who might join Tottenham not of any interest to Conte.
Dele has been linked with Newcastle United and Everton, but it is Southampton who have shown an interest in taking the former England international on loan until the end of the season. Whether or not they are prepared to cover his full wages, which are in excess of £100,000-a-week, remains to be seen.
Brighton, through the club’s technical director, Dan Ashworth, who knows the player from his time with England, are thought to be watching the Dele situation and there is also interest from Germany.
Lo Celso has been linked with Sevilla, but the fact he is away on international duty with Argentina and is annoyed at being left out of the squad for last weekend’s defeat at Chelsea means the midfielder could be difficult to re-home before the window shuts.
Japhet Tanganga, who is a target of AC Milan, and Matt Doherty could also leave on loan, while Jack Clarke is due to have a medical at Sunderland ahead of a loan move.
