Nandez, who can play as a central midfielder or on the right-hand side, scored twice and assisted three times in 32 Serie A outings last campaign, and would seemingly replace Tanguy Ndombele in the Lilywhites midfield.
With the likes of Giovanni Lo Celso, Oliver Skipp, Harry Winks and Pierre Emile Hojbjerg already at the club, however, the 30 million euro price tag could prove too steep for a backup option.

Milenkovic was wanted by West Ham, but talks on that deal have since broken down and Spurs have moved into the driving seat in the deal. They are also reportedly exploring ways in which they can add Vlahovic, a target for the Lilywhites all summer, into the deal.
Fiorentina are thought to value the pair at 85 million euros, with Spurs set to test the waters with a 70 million euro bid.
Would they make Tottenham title contendors?
Hint on Kane’s future dropped
Finally, Harry Kane, so long the subject of Manchester City interest, may not have played his last game for Tottenham after all. The English forward wasn’t in the squad for Tottenham’s 1-0 win over his prospective buyers, allegedly due to match fitness.
