Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has ‘drawn up’ an exciting transfer plan behind the scenes at Hotspur Way, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Crunch summer looming…
Spurs’ head coach has reportedly set his sights on a new reserve goalkeeper, right-wing-back, central defender, two midfielders and an alternative forward to Harry Kane (The Telegraph).
Links to some of Europe’s brightest have emerged in recent months with Spanish sources now claiming that Conte has an exciting transfer plan behind-closed-doors.
The Latest: Conte maps out exciting plan…
According to reports out of Spain, Conte personally has a ‘plan drawn up’ to put together a ‘competitive starting eleven’ capable of challenging for silverware next year.
The plan, as per this update, includes the ‘important signings’ of Jose Gimenez (Atletico Madrid), Denzel Dumfries (Inter Milan) and Milan Skriniar (Inter Milan).
Indeed, it appears Conte is now eyeing a major triple signing for Spurs this summer.
The Verdict: Down to Levy…
While the 52-year-old apparently knows exactly what he wants, it’ll come down to chairman Daniel Levy to back him with sufficient funds and transfer chief Fabio Paratici to successfully navigate negotiations.
While it is certainly a tough ask for the Lilywhites to seal all three of Gimenez, Dumfries and Skriniar, arguably too tough, the club could display their intent by making audacious attempts at the very least, perhaps locking up Dumfries just and one of the centre-backs.
