Tottenham contact made as Conte eyes ‘world class signing’ -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur have made contact as they eye a possible ‘world class signing’ for manager Antonio Conte, according to a report by The Times.

The Lowdown: Conte gets busy…

Since meeting with club chief Fabio Paratici for a transfer summit in Italy recently, Conte and the Lilywhites have confirmed two new arrivals in Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster.

Having clinched a place in the Premier League top four at the end of 2021/2022, gaining the riches of Champions League football for next campaign, chairman Daniel Levy and ENIC granted a £150 million equity increase to back Conte this summer.

The window is now officially open for business and next on Tottenham’s agenda is reportedly a left-sided centre-half.

The Latest: Spurs make Torres contact…

The Times, sharing an update on the north Londoners’ plans, have some significant news involving defensive target Pau Torres of Villarreal.

According to their information, Paratici and co have made contact to sign the 25-year-old through a recent enquiry – a second approach for Torres, who turned them down last summer during Nuno Espirito Santo’s reign.

However, as they eye a move, it is believed Spurs aren’t alone with Man United also firmly in the mix.

The Verdict: Make the move…

After the agent of Alessandro Bastoni all but dashed Conte’s hopes of sealing his number one target, we believe Torres is an ideal alternative.

Tottenham pundit John Wenham, speaking to Football Insider, called the Spain international a potential ‘world-class signing’ for the club and we’re inclined to agree going by his stats.

Can you tell us where all these ex-Spurs stars are from? Federico Fazio...

According to WhoScored, only goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli played more minutes in La Liga last season for Villarreal than Torres with Unai Emery’s mainstay also winning the joint-most aerial duels and making the second-most clearances per 90.

We’d advise Paratici to get moving.
