Transfer News: Jose Mourinho set to hand AS Roma ace Ebrima Darboe new contract amidst Tottenham Hotspur interest

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato (h/t The Express), Jose Mourinho is ready to tie down AS Roma star Ebrima Darboe to a new contract amidst transfer interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 20-year-old ace made the step up to the senior team this year. Primarily a defensive midfielder, Darboe has four appearances this season, including three in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

Roma may not be in the best form currently, but the youngster has produced stellar displays for someone his age. In fact, his performances have been enough to convince Jose Mourinho to tie him down to a new four-year deal

They were always aware of the Gambian’s talent and, thus, blocked the efforts of clubs trying to sign him on loan in the summer. But this contract extension comes on the back of Tottenham trying to secure a deal for the young midfielder.

Fabio Paratici was credited with an interest in Darboe last month, according to Tuttomercato (h/t The Express). Antonio Conte took charge in North London this month and shall be hoping to make some midseason additions. 

Paratici and Conte hail from Serie A and will be looking to raid the market in January. However, if the Gambian international signs a new contract, it might become much harder to lure him out of Italy.

However, Darboe is not the only name from the Italian league on the wish list of Conte. Spurs are trying to seal deals for Inter Milan duo Alessandro Bastoni and Nicolo Barella. But they are instead only willing to part ways with Stefan de Vrij and Milan Skriniar.

AC Milan ace Franck Kessie is also of interest, as is Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic. The former is in the final year of his contract, and the latter shall do so next summer. Thus, there are several targets, and Tottenham will be looking to get in whoever they can to please their gaffer in January.
