Ex-Roma boss Paulo Fonseca reportedly wants to bring Gianluca Mancini, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Gonzalo Villar to Tottenham Hotspur with him.

Paulo Fonseca is reportedly planning to swoop for a number of his former Roma stars upon his arrival at Tottenham Hotspur.

Daniel Levy's search for a successor for Jose Mourinho finally appears to be nearing an end, as Fonseca is understood to have agreed a three-year deal to take the reins in North London.

Former Spurs boss Mourinho has since assumed office at Roma, but the Portuguese could find a number of his players heading in the opposite direction as Fonseca talks transfers with newly-appointed director Fabio Paratici.

According to La Repubblica, Fonseca is keen to secure a triple swoop for Gianluca Mancini, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Gonzalo Villar after his official announcement as Tottenham manager.

Mancini and Villar were not selected for Italy or Spain's respective Euro 2020 squads - although the latter made his international debut in a 4-0 win over Lithuania before the tournament - while Pellegrini was called up by Roberto Mancini but had to withdraw due to injury.

However, Spurs would supposedly have to fend off interest from Barcelona and Liverpool to land Pellegrini, who is said to possess a £30m release clause in his Roma contract.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
