in Roma full-back Alessandro Florenzi following the sale of Kieran Trippier to
Trippier sealed a move on Wednesday to Atletico Madrid on a

Repacking centre-back Juan Foyth at right-back could be a
worthwhile experiment but Spurs may look to bring in a replacement for Trippier

The Serie A side value Florenzi at €30 million after he only
signed a new five-year deal at the Stadio Olimpico last August.
