As per talkSPORT, Tottenham have agreed terms with Antonio Conte to become the club’s new manager, with the former Chelsea boss having departed Inter Milan after delivering the scudetto.

If the information in the report is correct, and Conte is be appointed Jose Mourinho’s successor, he’ll have the entire summer transfer window to strengthen his squad ahead of his debut campaign.

Fichajes report that Conte has already identified five players who he would like to take to North London, should he agree terms with Daniel Levy and sign along the dotted line.

They are, as per the report, Inter Milan trio Milan Skriniar, Christian Eriksen and Ivan Perisic, as well as Nemanja Matic and Olivier Giroud, both of which he managed while in charge of Chelsea.

Nemanja Matic in action for Manchester United this season.

Giroud will be a free agent at the end of the month, while Matic is under contract with Man United until 2023. Spurs would have to agree a fee with the Red Devils to get him through the door.

As for Skriniar, Eriksen and Perisic, it’s hard to imagine Inter being prepared to part with multiple key players soon after winning the title. Conte stands little chance of signing any more than one of them.

You have to think that, were Conte to join Spurs, it would be with the promise that Levy will make a serious investment into the squad this summer. There could be an exciting few months ahead for the fanbase.

  1. Blimey, nothing like playing the kids, hey. That quintet would certainly raise our average age!

  2. Only Skriniar please. Eriksen was great for Spurs but he’s had a tough season at Inter and is unlikely to produce the same when he was at his prime.

  3. I am not a Spurs fan but if I was I would be raising hell if this was true. He would be turning Spurs into a retirement home. Seriously if Spurs want to Challenge City, Chelsea and Liverpool they need to invest in better players than these five.

  4. The only one of that lot mentioned I would take is Skriniar. All the others have had their day and are way too old, we’re supposed to be overhauling the squad not aging it.
