Tottenham are considering a move for Roma’s American midfielder Michael Bradley, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Italian giants have recently completed the signing of Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan, which could see Bradley made surplus to requirements.
The 26-year-old is currently behind the likes of Kevin Strootman, Miralem Pjanic and Daniele De Rossi in the pecking order at the Stadio Olimpico, and could look for a January move following the arrival of Nainggolan.
This could alert Tottenham and their Technical Director Franco Baldini, who took Bradley to Rome in 2012.
Bradley has previously played in the Premier League, where he had an unsuccessful loan spell with Aston Villa.
London rivals Fulham have also been linked with a move.
Tottenham could be in the market for a new midfielder, following the news Etienne Capoue could be on his way out of White Hart Lane, less than six months after signing.
The French midfielder has failed to impress during the first half of the season, and has often been played out of position at centre back.
Napoli are reportedly ready to test Tim Sherwood’s desire to keep the midfielder, after manager Rafael Benitez missed out on moves for Lyon’s Maxime Gonalons and the previously mentioned Nainggolan.
