Conte reportedly consulting Spurs ace about signing his international teammate

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Uruguayan international midfielder Manuel Ugarte.

According to a report from Record (h/t Sportwitness), the 21-year-old has popped up on Antonio Conte’s radar after his impressive performances with Sporting.

Ugarte joined the Portuguese outfit in 2021 and he has established himself as an important player for them.

He managed to impress against Tottenham in the Champions League earlier this month and Conte is reportedly plotting a move for the talented defensive midfielder.

The report from Record claims that Spurs have already made enquiries for the 21-year-old and Antonio Conte has reportedly spoken to Ugarte’s international teammate and Tottenham midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur regarding a potential move.

It seems that the Italian is trying to assess the potential of the youngster before making a move for him.

Spurs are already well stocked in the defensive midfield department and bringing in Ugarte would be a surprising addition.

The Londoners are better off signing a creative midfielder who can add craft in the middle of the park.

Ugarte will need regular football to continue his development and he might find it difficult to break into the Tottenham starting lineup, especially with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma ahead of him in the pecking order.

we need a playmaker, whether deeper-lying or more forward-lying. our midfield can’t string two passes together.

The one area where we don’t need anyone is CDM but I reckon anything’s better than yet another Kane to somewhere else hot tip from one of the “insiders” lol.

The ‘off to Chavski’ rumors are hilarious. I could do a better job than these journo-lites
