Fourth in the Premier League and qualified for the next edition of the Champions League, Tottenham intends to put the package on the transfer window. Something to delight Antonio Conte.
Tottenham got hot. Indeed, the Spurs managed to overtake Arsenal in the money time of the season to clinch fourth place in the championship, synonymous with qualification for the Champions League. Mission accomplished for Antonio Conte, who took over the team on November 2 following the dismissal of Nuno Espirito Santo. At that time, the Londoners were tenth in the Premier League after ten rounds. The Italian has therefore managed to put Tottenham back on track. Despite this, his future at the head of the English training is not assured.
Six reinforcements at least this summer
If the Spurs want to continue to move forward with him at least until 2023, the date of the end of his contract, the transalpine coach has cast doubt. Indeed, Conte, whose name was mentioned for a time at PSG, confided following the match against Norwich: “I am a person with ambition and I like to fight for something important, to lift a trophy. I am very happy. Then we’ll see. I have always said that at the end of the season I will speak to the club. We will try to find the best solution”.
Statements that gave the leaders of Tottenham a cold sweat. Back in Italy to rest with his wife and daughter, who stayed there, Antonio Conte will think about his future, he who insisted with the club that his team be considerably reinforced next year. Then he will meet Fabio Paratici. Besides, the Telegram explains that the sporting director assured his coach that the Spurs would activate this summer to offer him at least six recruits to persuade him to stay.
A larger transfer window budget
And to finish convincing him, the English made a big announcement. “Tottenham agreed today, Tuesday 24 May 2022, to a capital increase of up to £150 million from majority shareholder, ENIC Sports Inc (“ENIC”), via the issue of convertible A shares and warrants that accompany them. The capital injection gives the Premier League club greater financial flexibility and the ability to invest more on and off the pitch.”can we read on the press release.
Thus, 176 million euros will therefore be devoted to the next transfer market. Something to reassure Conte and make great purchases. Ivan Perisic (Inter Milan) is courted, he who is out of contract. But Juventus is on it. Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) is also followed. According to our information, Martin Terrier (Rennes) has been approached. Other elements should be targeted by Spurs, whose priority is to retain Harry Kane. With an XXL recruitment, in other words, they have every chance of convincing the Englishman like Conte to stay next season.
