Tottenham News – Antonio Conte

Jones said recently GiveMeSport that Tottenham and Conte have held talks over a new deal.

However, Spurs appear to be struggling to convince the 53-year-old to put pen to paper, with The Telegraph claiming he is in no rush to make a decision on his future.

Conte’s current contract expires at the end of the season, but the north London club have the option to extend it by a further 12 months.

Conte and his side did not make the kind of return to action they would have hoped for on Monday, drawing 2-2 with Brentford in their first game back from the World Cup.

What has Dean Jones said about Tottenham and Antonio Conte?

With Conte yet to commit his future to the club, Jones believes it would be risky for Tottenham to spend big on the players he has demanded.

Speaking to GMS, the transfer reporter said: “It’s one thing for Conte to outline, say, two top signings for January. Conte doesn’t want club signings. He wants elite signings that will immediately improve a starting eleven, and that it’s good because Tottenham want success quickly.

“But at the end of the day, if Conte is not willing to commit his own future to the club beyond the end of the season, the club have to be a bit cautious because what if they spend a lot of money on two signings and they pay them . 150k a week, 200k a week and suddenly the next manager doesn’t want them and they’re left with players who don’t fit?

According to the reliable Fabrizio Romano, he is someone valued at Hotspur Way and was a target for the club during the summer.

On the other hand, a report from 90min claims that Tottenham have spoken to representatives of Barcelona star Memphis Depay.

It remains to be seen how far Spurs are willing to back Conte next month, but with the battle for Champions League football really competitive this season, the former Inter Milan manager and Chelsea may feel they need reinforcements.
