Tottenham Hotspur chiefs are scheduling an imminent ‘summit’ as they seek a transfer agreement for manager Antonio Conte, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Conte makes demands…
The Italian is allegedly plotting a major overhaul at Spurs in the next summer window with as many as six major signings in his sights (The Telegraph).
Tottenham are apparently in pole position for the 29-year-old as the Lilywhites allegedly eye a back-up and eventual heir to long-serving number one Hugo Lloris.
However, sharing a twist on Conte’s goal, TUTTOmercatoWEB journalist Dimitri Conti has some interesting news for supporters.
The Latest: Tottenham chiefs eye Gollini loan agreement…
According to his sources, as shared on Twitter and for TMW, Spurs ‘management’, presumably meaning club chiefs, have scheduled an end-of-season ‘summit‘ with the entourage of current loanee Pierluigi Gollini.
Despite his real lack of game time under Conte, Tottenham now want to extend the Italian’s loan for another year as they eye a temporary transfer agreement for 2022/2023.
The Verdict: Bizarre development…
Taking this into account and the fact Johnstone is available for free, this TMW update certainly comes as a bizarre one.
Spurs should undoubtedly prioritise a move for the Baggies ace to solve their goalkeeping issue, especially since Johnstone’s addition could balance their homegrown quota books and add proven Premier League quality to their ranks.
