Tottenham: Kilpatrick shares ‘looming problem’ for Conte

Tottenham: Kilpatrick shares ‘looming problem’ for Conte -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur journalist Dan Kilpatrick of The Evening Standard has now shared a ‘looming problem’ for manager Antonio Conte in north London.

The Lowdown: Spurs summer reshuffle begins…

Having confirmed the signing of Ivan Perisic on a Bosman deal from Inter Milan, Spurs boss Conte has shown no sign of slowing down there going by recent reports.

The Italian’s transfer meeting with club chief Fabio Paratici in Turin last week revealed that the Lilywhites could strengthen in a number of key areas after their £150 million equity increase.

However, despite the seemingly never-ending good news recently, Kilpatrick has seen fit to remind supporters of a ‘looming problem’ facing Conte.

The Latest: Kilpatrick shares bad news…

According to the reporter, as Spurs approve an exit for midfielder Harry Winks, the consequence is a real problem balancing the books in terms of homegrown quota.

He explained:

“Spurs have approved Harry Winks leaving the club and Conte wants a new midfielder. But the club has a looming problem with non-homegrown numbers.”

The Verdict: Dilemma…

Selling surplus-to-requirements assets like Winks will inevitably have this consequence but, luckily for Lilywhites supporters, the club does have an eye on English replacements.

The likes of Djed Spence and James Ward-Prowse, alongside Fraser Forster, may well come in given their serious links with a move to Hotspur Way.

Tottenham targeting homegrown players as part of Conte’s Premier League plans is a promising indicator that they do have this issue in mind at the very least.
