Gold says there’s a fourth position Conte now wants a new signing in
Football London journalist Alasdair Gold has claimed on his YouTube channel that Antonio Conte has now added a fourth position he wants Tottenham Hotspur to strengthen during the January transfer window.
Spurs fans are eagerly awaiting their club getting stuck into the market. There was always a belief that Conte’s arrival would lead to a busy month.
Tottenham have made a bright start to life under Conte. However, their defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday night has highlighted just how important this window could be to help Spurs take that next step.
It has previously been reported that a right wing-back is one area Tottenham want to improve. Gold has suggested that they were also already keen on another centre-back and striker. But he went on to add that Conte would ideally like a fourth addition.
“There was a feeling within the club that Spurs needed a right wing-back, a left-sided centre-back, and another striker,” he told his YouTube channel.
“From what I understand, Conte agrees with that, but also, would like a central midfielder. That’s what I understand.”
Conte right to want Tottenham to sign midfielder with something missing from Spurs’ options
It does appear that Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and Harry Winks will make up a key part of Tottenham’s midfield unit. Conte has recently spoken about how impressed he has been with Winks since coming to Tottenham.
But it does appear that something is missing. Tottenham lack a really creative midfielder. And they probably have done ever since Christian Eriksen left.
Tanguy Ndombélé and Dele Alli do not appear to be prominent fixtures in Conte’s plans. Neither has managed to look overly impressive since his appointment.
So adding someone with the ability to really make things happen in the final third would be a huge boost.
