Report: Antonio Conte provides six Serie A targets as Tottenham prepares spending spree

By Eddie Razo -

Antonio Conte is now in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, and the Italian tactician is ready to make the north London-based club spend a lot of money. 

Conte is known for wanting clubs to invest a significant amount of money to build a squad that challenges for trophies. Various reports suggest that Conte wants a transfer budget of around £238-million to sign six players currently playing in Serie A. 

According to Calciomercato, Conte wants Tottenham to spend roughly £136-million on Juventus, two-star players in Federico Chiesa and Matthijs de Ligt. 

Meanwhile, Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the other targets Conte desires are ACF Fiorentina striker Dušan Vlahović as the Italian club want around £59-million for the 21-year-old whose contract expires. 

Furthermore, the Italian media outlet adds that AC Milan central midfielder Franck Kessié is on their target list and Inter Milan center-back Stefan de Vrij, and Lazio right-back Manuel Lazzari. 

It will be interesting to see how Tottenham funds these purchases and so which players get shipped out, whether Harry Kane or other marquee talents that Conte might deem expendable. It’s hard to imagine chairman Daniel Levy shelling out that amount of money with no sales to cover the cost.

A few days ago i would of said there is absolutely no chance we would get Conte as a manager.
I’m hoping big changes are on the way for Spurs. Perhaps Levy just needs his hand held by Paratici through this process.
With Conte in charge i believe we can attract the top talent. We just need Levy to sanction it..

Yup, I agree; it’s a similar situation to my local Zoo, it could be a world class Zoo, all they need is a vegetarian tiger.

Chiesa and De Ligt are pipedreams. They will demand Ch Lg football, we cannot offer assurances like that.

Vlahovic is highly sought after. We would do well to get him, but that is more realistic than Chiesa. I wouldn’t take Kessie, in the games I see him play he does very little.

The merry-go-round of players that Conte will or could buy will be sped up every day, but as we all know, we need players out before we get some in.

Kessie scored 13 goals and provided 4 assists from a deep lying midfield position last season. He does very little quite well it seems…

I see you are a stats man! Did you check how many penalties he scored from deep lying midfield? Have you seen him play? He is poor, so he’ll fit in well at Spurs, because you nor anyone else can tell me of a top player that we have signed since Son. Please do not state Hojbjerg, there are 10 better defensive midfielders in the EPL alone.

😂 11 of his 13 of his league goals were penalties last season.
