Revealed: Antonio Conte’s four-man shortlist to transform Spurs

  • Nov 03, 17:29

New Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has started life at the club with a bang, demanding the club go out and secure his four-player shortlist as soon as possible, to transfer the club’s fortunes.

Top of the list are defenders, and a raid on former club Inter Milan for Dutchman Stefan de Vrij is seen as a priority, as well as Lazio right-back Manuel Lazzari – according to a report in TEAMtalk.

Goalscoring options for Spurs are limited, so a swoop in the new year for Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic is likely, with the Italian club open to offers.

Another shrewd move, in midfield, could be AC Milan’s Franck Kessie. The Ivorian is out of contract at the end of the season and as such, a cut-price deal in January could be a big coup for Tottenham.
