Inter Milan Star Wants Reunion With Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte signed two players from Serie A in January and now one of his former stars wants to move from Italy to join him at Tottenham Hotspur.

Conte took over at Tottenham in November and managed to bring in Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur to the club in the January transfer window.

It was all part of the push for Champions League football next season, along with getting rid of the likes of Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele.

However there's no way that will be all for Conte when it comes to boosting his squad in the near future, and he did also miss out on several targets in the winter window, including Luis Diaz who instead moved to Liverpool.

According to a report in Italy, the former Inter Milan boss is eyeing up a move for a Nerazzurri star, with Inter Live, via Sport Witness, claiming Arturo Vidal is a target for Spurs.

The piece also says the Chilean, whose departure from the San Siro in the summer is considered a 'certainty,' wants to move to north London to join up with Conte.

Vidal's current deal at the San Siro expires in the summer, although he does have an option for an extra year, meaning Spurs could sign him without a transfer fee.

Inter are currently more focused on getting Marcelo Brozovic to sign a new deal, with the midfielder's deal also up, and he has previously been linked with Tottenham.

Simone Inzaghi's side have also been linked with a move for Franck Kessie from rivals AC Milan when his deal expires in the summer, having also signed Hakan Calhanoglu from them under the same circumstances last year.

Kessie was one of Conte's targets in January but reportedly rejected the chance to move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and has also been rumoured to fancy a move to Barcelona.

Tottenham's battle to finish in the top four and take the final Champions League's spot has certainly been given a boost since Conte took over.

However they have now lost back-to-back Premier League games, having lost to Chelsea before the international break and then to Southampton in midweek.

They threw away the lead against the Saints, with Ralph Hassenhutl's side scoring twice in a minute to secure a 3-2 victory over Conte's side.
