Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly in talks with Antonio Conte over the possibility of seeing the Italian sign a new contract at the north London club.
The Lowdown: A new deal for Conte?
Spurs appointed Conte as their new manager a year ago this week after he signed an 18-month deal to take charge of the Lilywhites.
Twelve months down the line, it appears as though the Premier League club are keen on getting the 53-year-old to pledge his long-term future to Spurs.
The Latest: Spurs confident of new Conte deal
According to a recent report from The Athletic, there is a confidence at Spurs that Conte will sign a new long-term deal at the club, with talks underway between the two parties.
This news comes after recent reports linking the Tottenham manager with a move back to his previous club Juventus, where incumbent boss Max Allegri is apparently on thin ice.
The Verdict: Would be great for Spurs
Since Conte took charge a year ago, the Italian has won 31 of the 54 games he has overseen at Tottenham, drawing nine and losing 14. During his time with Spurs, the former Chelsea manager was able to get his side into the Champions League by finishing fourth in the Premier League last season.
After 13 league matches in this campaign, the north London club have won eight, drawn two and lost three, leaving them in third place having scored 26 goals and conceded 16.
Given the fairly positive time that the manager has had in charge of Tottenham, it’s easy to see why the club are keen to offer him a new long-term deal.
If this were to happen, we feel it would be a great move for all involved. It would not only see the club keep hold of a very good manager with a glittering CV, but also put to bed any concerns that there may be about his future.
