Report: Conte would welcome Tottenham signing Leandro Paredes

Antonio Conte would gladly welcome Tottenham Hotspur signing Leandro Paredes with PSG ready to cash in on the midfielder this summer, according to a report from Calciomercato.It.

Paredes is looking set to leave Parc des Princes at the end of the campaign. His contract expires at the end of next season. And Leonardo is open to cashing in for around £20.7 million.

Inter Milan are monitoring the Argentina international. But it is also claimed by Calciomercato.It that Tottenham are involved in the race to sign Paredes.

In fact, it is suggested that Conte would gladly welcome Spurs signing the 27-year-old, who has made 22 appearances in all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season.

It is noted that Inter could look to use their good relationship with Leonardo to strike a deal for around £16.8 million. But clearly, Tottenham being in the running could make their task a lot trickier.

Leandro Paredes deal would surely signal end of Harry Winks’ Tottenham spell

Paredes has not had the best time in Paris. He has made well over a century of appearances for PSG. But he has never been a regular starter for the club. In fact, he has never made more than 21 league appearances in a season.

But if Conte is keen, Tottenham clearly see him really contributing in North London. And with that, questions would have to be asked about where that leaves Harry Winks.

The Englishman has had bright moments at Spurs. But he has struggled for game-time since Rodrigo Bentancur arrived. And that is without Oliver Skipp being available. He has been out for some time due to injury.

Another midfielder coming in would be an ominous sign for Winks when his situation already looks a little bleak.
