The Lowdown: Spurs keeping busy…
Moves for the Everton striker and Barcelona’s central defender have been widely covered as Lilywhites chief Fabio Paratici keeps busy in an attempt to fully back manager Antonio Conte.
Who do Spurs need to sign next for Conte?
Other (tell us in the comments!)
Spurs are set for Conte’s first full Premier League season in charge of the club over 2022/2023 and have so far put ENIC’s £150 million equity increase to good use.
It is reliably believed that the north Londoners will continue chasing targets and aren’t finished despite a hectic last few days with news now coming to light on their attempts to sign Spence.
The Latest: Levy nearing Spence breakthrough…
Indeed, as Spurs aim to sign the exciting Middlesbrough wing-back, it appears there has been a crucial development.
According to Football Insider, Conte’s side are ‘increasingly confident of reaching a full agreement’ to sign the 21-year-old after upping their bid closer to Boro’s £20 million asking price.
Allegedly ‘nearing a breakthrough’ after ‘new discussions’ between club chairman Daniel Levy and Steve Gibson, the report adds Tottenham are ‘close to agreeing a fee’ for Spence.
The Verdict: Potentially huge…
Right back is seemingly a major priority for Conte and Spence comes as the ideal potential addition.
Described as the ‘perfect player‘ for Conte due to his fit on the right of a back five, he comes as a more-than-ideal choice for the role.
