TOTTENHAM have agreed a deal with Serie A side Genoa for the loan of Tanguy N'Dombele, according to reports.
But Fabrizio Romano says the deal is on the brink of collapse with the midfielder being unconvinced by Genoa, who were only promoted to the Serie A this season.
Spurs are desperate to offload N'Dombele, who now sits as the club's highest earner on £200,000-a-week after Harry Kane left the club.
Tottenham paid £53million to sign the midfielder from Lyon in 2019 but he has never truly settled in North London.
His most regular spell in the side came under Jose Mourinho, but he was shipped out on loan twice by Antonio Conte to Lyon and Napoli.
After spending last season on loan at Serie A champions Napoli, the midfielder feels he is above playing for a side that has just been promoted to the league in the form of Genoa.

There had been a glimmer of hope that Tottenham's record signing might have been brought back into the first team fold by Ange Postecoglou after he impressed in training during the Aussie's early weeks in charge.
But the midfielder picked up an injury during Tottenham's pre-season tour of Asia which saw the likes of Giovani Lo Celso moved ahead of the Frenchman in Postecoglou's pecking order.
Things turned sour though with Postecoglou becoming frustrated with both the midfielder's attitude and timekeeping on the tour.
Spurs are now desperate to offload him, even if the move is just a loan.

Turkish side Galatasaray are also interested in a deal for the midfielder.
It was rumoured that the Turkish club offered Tottenham £11m for N'Dombele earlier this window but again he was unconvinced by the project.
N'Dombele is contracted to Spurs until the summer of 2025 and his wages currently cost the club over £10m-a-year.
During his four-year spell at the North London club, he's made 63 appearances with a return of six goals.
