Incoming Tottenham manager Antonio Conte wants the club to target eight Serie A players in January, according to reports in Italy.
Conte is expected to be named Spurs’ new head coach on Tuesday, according to The Telegraph, following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo.
And it seems the former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss already has his eye on a number of potential transfer targets.
Those others are Inter Milan trio Marcelo Brozovic, Stefan de Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni, Juventus pair Federico Chiesa and Matthijs de Ligt, Lazio’s Manuel Lazzari and AC Milan’s Franck Kessie.
Three of those players are centre-backs, which suggests Conte wants to set up with a back three at Spurs.
All of them would improve the squad, but Chiesa and De Ligt are perhaps unrealistic targets, particularly as Tottenham are unable to offer Champions League football.
Vlahovic would be a great signing, not only because he is a clinical goalscorer but also because Spurs have absolutely no cover or competition for Harry Kane at present.
How many of the eight would you like Tottenham to buy? Let us know in the comments section below.
