The 28 year old Italian has fallen behind Paul Pogba, Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal in Antonio Conte’s midfield pecking order and is apparently set to be made available by the Turin side.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will no doubt have to once again dig deep for new additions as he looks to bring in a replacement for Tim Sherwood and as such will look to trim the Tottenham squad before making any new signings.
This source claims that Brazilian Sandro and Belgian Moussa Dembele could be sacrificed to make way for Marchisio and neither midfielder make much of an impact last term though both players did spend periods out injured.
The north London side have a plethora of central midfield options and one wonders what the future holds for the likes of Paulinho, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea, Etienne Capoue who barely featured following his summer move to the club.
Levy spent over £110m on new additions last summer, albeit largely covered by the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, and that outlay failed to secure the club a prized top four finish so he may be reticent about forking out huge sums again.
