Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte may need to bring in reinforcements in January and is able to “plan” with north London officials.
The Lowdown: Reinforcements needed?
When Tottenham signed Richarlison in the summer transfer window, it was a move that came with significance as the side finally invested in a high-quality, depth-bolstering option.
The side may now need to channel that same methodology into garnering further reinforcements, having secured a place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages earlier this month.
The Latest: A couple of bodies
“I think for Antonio Conte, he can now plan as a Champions League side.
“He can now plan with Paratici and Levy in January because I think they need a couple of bodies in.
“They’re so light on the bench.”
The Verdict: Much needed
You could say that Spurs’ makeshift backline is in need of a fresh and more orthodox central presence, with the side ranking as the ninth-worst defensive side in the league this season.
It goes without saying that this is completely uncharacteristic from a traditional Conte side, so a defence-bolstering option could be seen as a must.
So too may be a progressive midfield string-puller who can operate as a deep-lying playmaker. Improvements can and most likely will be made in January.
