Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, is planning a ‘ruthless overhaul,’ with at least six players set to be fired.
IN THE TRANSFER MARKET, TOTTENHAM manager Antonio Conte intends to make major changes to his Spurs squad.
According to reports, Tottenham manager Antonio Conte intends to rip up his first-team squad, with at least six players on the verge of being moved on this month and in the summer transfer window.
Spurs’ 2-0 Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg loss to Chelsea in midweek served as a reminder to the Italian of the work that still needs to be done at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“We need to have patience,” Conte said after the game, “because there is a lot, a lot of work to be done in many aspects.”
“Because Tottenham’s level has plummeted in recent years, and it has plummeted dramatically.”
Now we must rebuild, which will take time and patience.”
And Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is already starting his overhaul by expressing interest in bringing Adama Traore from Wolves to the club this month.
Spurs see the Spaniard as a more attacking option than Emmerson Royal as the club’s right-sided wing-back under Conte.
Conte wants to oversee a ruthless overhaul of the playing staff, according to ESPN, with over a half-dozen players potentially being moved on.
According to the report, in private meetings with his superiors, the manager has made it clear that Spurs are far from ready to challenge for Premier League titles.
Conte wants a complete overhaul, according to ESPN, and ESPN reports that he is willing to sell Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn, Matt Doherty, and Tanguy Ndombele.
The futures of Japhet Tanganga and Giovani Lo Celso are also said to be uncertain, and some of those players could be moved this month if the right deals are found.
Conte has the support of the club’s hierarchy, which is willing to agree to several incomings and outgoings before January 31st.
They’re also aware that doing multiple deals during the winter window is more difficult, so some signings may have to wait until the summer.
Spurs are looking for a backup striker and a winger this month, but Conte also wants to improve his center-back and central midfield.
While the north London club is currently negotiating deals, they prefer to wait until the summer to secure their top targets rather than compromise.
Conte admitted it himself.
