Antonio Conte could reignite Tanguy Ndombele's Tottenham Hotspur career following his appointment as head coach, according to journalist Paul Brown.
What's the latest news involving Ndombele and Conte?
Ndombele became Spurs' club record signing when he joined in a £53.8million deal from French side Lyon two years ago.
But his stay in north London has not gone to plan and he agitated for a move during the summer transfer window.
According to Sky Germany, via Sky Sports, Bayern Munich were keen to arrange a swap deal which would have taken Ndombele to the Bundesliga in exchange for Corentin Tolisso and a fee of £17.2million.
However, Spurs turned down that offer and, with the deadline looming, it was decided at boardroom level that Ndombele would not be sold.
Conte is known to be a fan of the midfielder after he tried to sign Ndombele during his time in charge of Serie A giants Inter Milan.
What has Paul Brown said about Ndombele?
Brown believes Conte could prove to be the perfect manager to get the best out of Ndombele.
Brown feels Conte has previously shown he can get the best out of players who are of a similar mould to Ndombele.

He told GIVEMESPORT: "If you look at some of the teams and the way some of the teams Conte has had and some of the ways he has set them up over the past few years, he has found room for those kinds of players.
"Ndombele has got incredible skill, great talent and he can beat a man, so I don't think it's over for him."
Are there any doubts over Ndombele's Spurs future?
According to Spanish media outlet Sport, Barcelona are looking prise Ndombele away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when the transfer window reopens in January.
The speculation comes after Rudy Galetti, a respected Italian journalist, suggested a deal is close to make AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie the first signing of the Conte era.
Ndombele is Spurs' joint-highest earner, with his £200,000-per-week contract not due to expire until 2024 and boasting the option of being extended by a further 12 months, so the north Londoners could look to cut their losses with the Frenchman if there is no sign of him delivering the goods consistently.
