| Top stories | Fox News

J

he January transfer window closes next Monday and the pressure is on Tottenham to back Antonio Conte with new signings.

Here’s what awaits Spurs before the deadline.

what they need

Conte would like a complete overhaul of his squad, which he has ostensibly described as ‘in the middle’, but the head coach has prioritized signing a new right-back, midfielder and coach. an attacker this month.

A left-half is also a longer-term priority, with more depth in more or less every position as well as a clear succession plan for goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris.

In short, the ‘painful rebuilding’ demanded by Mauricio Pochettino in 2019 has yet to happen and Conte’s happiness seems to hinge on activity this week.

who they want

Adama Traore is set to become the first signing of the Conte era, with the Wolves man likely to join on a deal worth £20m and set to be converted to a right-back.

A creative midfield will also become a priority if Spurs can offload unwanted players.

They are considering a move for AC Milan’s Franck Kessie to avoid a bidding war when the Ivorian becomes a free agent this summer.

Spurs have long been among the clubs that admire Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic, although that boat may have sailed before.

Tottenham have also started talks over a possible loan deal for Vlahovic’s team-mate Sofyan Amrabat.

who could go

Tottenham are hoping to offload the trio of midfielders Dele Alli, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso, with loan or swap deals seen as the most likely.

Defenders Joe Rodon, Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty can also leave, although Harry Winks and Steven Bergwijn have done enough to earn Conte’s trust.

Ajax have seen a £15million bid for Bergwijn rejected but Spurs are unlikely to sell after the Dutchman’s recent exploits at Leicester.
