That’s according to football journalist Fabrizio Romano, who, on Wednesday, confirmed that Daniel Levy is trying to tempt the Italian, as well as former Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici, to join his London based club.

Currently, without a permanent manager since he dismissed Jose Mourinho earlier this year, Levy appears to be busy trying to secure the club’s first big summer appointment.
The latest in the ongoing saga though comes from the Telegraph, who claims that in an attempt to reach an agreement, Levy is prepared to allow Conte to decide whether or not to keep or sell star striker Harry Kane.
It is likely that should Conte take over at Spurs, he’ll want to keep hold of Kane, a striker he has, in the past praised heavily.
However, as Conte edges closer to Spurs, in what could intimate a squad re-build, Kane, who would undoubtedly bring in a whopping sum of cash, could be sacrificed.
Spurs fans – would you sell Kane for the sake of an entire re-build, or keep him? – Let us know in the comments.
Conte needs full control – moreover let him decide to keep or sell Kane – but if we are going to rebuild that money will come in handy provided it is reinvested in the team – six out – six in
It will go to stadium pay off not squad
