What Antonio Conte really thinks about Tottenham's summer transfers - journalist
Spurs brought in seven new players – Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie. They also made Cristian Romero’s loan move permanent, which many feel is a cherry on top of what has been a stunning window.
What Antonio Conte really thinks about Tottenham’s summer transfers
Many expected Daniel Levy to back Conte this summer after Spurs qualified for the Champions League. However, nobody really believed that the Tottenham chairman would sanction moves for as many as seven new signings.
Spurs spent over £150 million in the transfer window this summer – only five clubs in the country splashed more cash.
That should make Conte a really happy man, but sources close to the Italian apparently sense disappointment that his side failed to bring in at least one more player.
Jones told GiveMeSport: “I mean, he’s happy with the work that was done.
“But, those close to him definitely sense there was some disappointment they couldn’t get one more over the line.”
Tottenham were surprisingly quiet on transfer deadline day this summer.
Many fans expected them to try and bring in at least one new player, but the Spurs board decided that they’ve done enough. Spurs didn’t bring in anybody late in the window, which is probably why Conte is a bit disappointed.
No move materialised in the end for Tottenham, but after signing seven new players in one window, Conte really can’t complain.
