Conte plotting to steal talent away from Inter

Conte's plans to boost Tottenham squad with former Inter pupils revealed

June 4, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
With the coach's appointment set to come in the next few days, the Italian tactician has identified some of his former players that could join him at Spurs' training ground.

The end of Antonio Conte's two-yea stint at Inter may bring quite a few changes, and some of those could see some of his former pupils with the nerazzurri embarking in a new adventure with him at the English Premier League.

The Italian coach is seemingly ready to join Tottenham in the coming days, and just as if fate had wanted it, he could team up once more with some of the footballers that helped him win the Scudetto for Inter for the first time since 2010. The deal between Conte and Spurs' main man Daniel Levy could give the boss a bit of leverage when deciding which players will join the club, and he has targeted at least three key pieces for his new English gig.

Conte's knowledge of Inter's need to cash in on players could play a huge part in their arrival to Spurs, especially since he left the club due to their money problems and his disagreement with the board in terms of which players they should sign and those that needed to leave.

The first name on that list would be that of Christian Eriksen. The duo shared a frosty relationship during Eriksen's first 12 months at the Giuseppe Meazza, but he ended up becoming an instrumental member of Inter's squad in their Scudetto run. Eriksen's knowledge of how things work at Spurs could prove key for Conte's success, and the Italian coach is reportedly interested in having him around.

The next name on the list is that of Milan Skriniar. The North London side has been in need of a defender for quite some time, and Skriniar's knowledge of Conte's system could come in handy. While the player's deal may be a bit expensive for Spurs to afford, Conte's presence could give them a good option to hire the talented center back.

Last, but not least, Conte's "shopping list" from Inter reportedly included Ivan Perisic as well. The Croatian footballer is quite experienced and was key to Inter's Scudetto win with key goals in the final moments of the season. Furthermore, he won the 2020 UEFA Champions League while on loan at Bayern, and his runs down the flank could prove interesting to watch at Spurs' stadium. 

While there are other transfer targets on Daniel Levy's mind, Conte will surely have a massive influence on which players join the team. Nevertheless, the first thing Tottenham have to do is to unveil Conte. Then, they can start rebuilding the team and work with the Premier League title on their minds.
