Six Players Tottenham Must Spend Their £150 Million War Chest On
| Last updated
Fresh from securing champions league football, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is set to arm demanding manager Antonio Conte with a £150 million war chest in a bid to keep the Italian in North London. Below Sportbible takes a look at the 6 players Conte will want to add over the coming months.
Dejan Kulusevski- Free
The Swedish international has impressed in North London since his loan move from Juventus at the turn of the year. With 13 goals and assists since January, Kulusevski has earned himself a catchy song on the Tottenham terraces and feelings are the board want to increase the winger’s stay, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that they intend to keep him on loan for another 12 months, while working on a permanent deal for the end of next season. Tottenham fans will be hoping this frees up more funds as the squad looks to equip itself for Conte’s particular brand of football.
Fraser Forster- Free
Tottenham need an able deputy to captain Hugo Lloris, and have apparently coaxed the Southampton shot-stopper into taking a wage cut as the 38 year old prepares to join on a free.
Filip Kostić - £15 million
One look at his title winning Chelsea team will tell you how important wing backs are to the Conte style of play, and the club is set to splash out on at least two new ones this summer. While Ryan Sessegnon was in good form at the end of the season, Tottenham are apparently looking at Eintracht Frankfurt flyer Fillip Kostic as a suitable addition, after several standout performances en route to Frankfurt’s Europa League win in Seville.
Cristian Romero- £40 million
Tottenham have already triggered a £40 million ‘obligation to buy’ in Romero’s contract, it’s being reported. Declared ‘signing of the season’ by Jamie Carragher, the Argentine has helped tighten up Tottenham’s defence, with the Lilywhites keeping 8 clean sheets in the last 16 games of the season.
Ousmane Dembele- Free
While not formally linked with Tottenham, the club have let it known that they are looking to add a wide forward to the squad and with the French flyer’s contract up at Barcelona he’ll be one of the hottest properties around this summer. Rumours seem to indicate a move to Paris in the offing, but don’t be surprised if the promise of premier league and champions league football is enough to tempt him to North London.
Alessandro Bastoni- £51 million
One of Tottenham’s highest priorities this summer will be to add a left sided centre back to their squad. While Ben Davies has filled in admirably, Inter Milan’s Bastoni is understood to be a high priority for the club, although they may have to outbid Manchester United to get him.
