Report: Tottenham board now give Conte £50m to spend to sign ‘unbelievable’ forward and ‘wild’ defender
Tottenham are looking into the possibility of signing of both Adama Traore and Diego Carlos before the January transfer windows shuts, with the club ready to back Antonio Conte with a £50m double deal.
That’s according to the Sun, who claim that Daniel Levy and the Spurs board are ready to back their Italian manager with two huge January signings to boost the squad. Both Traore – who was branded ‘unbelievable’ by Jack Grealish – and Carlos are being tipped as potential signings, in what could also be a bitter blow for Newcastle.
The Magpies have tracked Carlos all January. However, they’ve seen bid after bid turned down, despite claims the player himself is open to the move to England. Traore, meanwhile, has been on Spurs’ radar for some time too. A deal is said to be close anyway, although talks are ongoing with Wolves.
Tottenham’s midweek win at Leicester has given the club renewed hope that a top four finish might very well be on the cards under Conte. And chucking a nice £50m at two good players could enhance Spurs’ chances even further.
The Sun reports how Newcastle have had a £30m bid rejected for Carlos though. So it remains to be seen if Spurs’ hopes of a £50m double deal here can come to light.
TBR’s View: Tottenham Need To Back Conte Now
The Italian is squeezing the very best from this current crop at Spurs. So the thought of adding new players to the group should excite the board and fans.
Midweek seemed a turning point for the club. The scenes on the pitch and in the away end were nothing short of spectacular. There is a real sense of optimism now at Tottenham with Conte at the helm.
