Report: Conte to tell Levy he wants 8 new Tottenham signings, as he plans huge transfer overhaul

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has worked wonders at N17 since taking the reins.

With just four Premier League games remaining, Spurs are still in with a shout of finishing in the top four.

However, Conte has made it clear that he wants to be fighting “for much more” than European qualification.

To turn Tottenham into title contenders, he will require significant backing in the transfer window.

At the end of the season, Conte and his coaches will speak to Fabio Paratici and Daniel Levy about the club’s ambitions.

According to The Telegraph, the Tottenham boss will tell the pair he requires six to eight new players at Spurs.

The article also claims that, if Conte were to leave at the end of the season, Graham Potter is the favourite to take over.

This is only if Spurs were ‘forced’ to make a change, however.

There have been rumours suggesting Conte had spoken to Paris Saint-Germain, but he dismissed them as “fake news”.

Spurs in a tricky position – TBR View

Conte is very much in a win-win situation here at Spurs.

As if his CV wasn’t enough, he has proven he has what it takes to take Tottenham to the next level.

However, if the report is true, then Spurs will have to spend a lot of money to make it happen.

Admittedly, the report doesn’t make it clear whether Conte wants 6-8 players in the next window or overall.

As Alasdair Gold recently said on his YouTube channel, Tottenham don’t really have any choice but to back Conte.

With the Premier League’s big five all likely to spend a lot of money this summer, Spurs can’t afford to sit still.

But while Potter is a great coach, losing Conte will not go down well at all among the Tottenham fanbase.
