Conte looking at several Serie A stars

TRANSFER TALK: New Spurs coach Conte could turn to Serie A to boost squad

November 3, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
The Italian tactician, who previously managed both Juventus and Inter, as well as Chelsea, is reportedly looking at several Serie A players to bolster his new squad.

It's been less than 24 hours since Antonio Conte officially took over the reins at Tottenham, but the highly-decorated Italian tactician is already making huge plans about how he intends to totally overhaul the squad starting as soon as possible.

That means making some key purchases during the upcoming January transfer market, and Conte, who won numerous titles while in charge of Inter and Juventus, is looking back to the league where he made his name both as a player and a manager: Serie A.

According to reports, Conte, who also won a Premier League title while in charge of Chelsea, is closely tracking four players. Two, Milan Skriniar and Stefan De Vrij played under him as the Nerazzurri clinched their first Scudetto since 2010 last season, and either of these options would be brought in to shore up Tottenham's leaky back-line.

A third, Franck Kessie, plays for Inter's bitter rivals AC Milan, but that hasn't stopped Conte from being keen on the Ivorian international, who will see his contract with the Rossoneri run out at the end of this season. So far, the Diavolo and the player haven't been able to come to an agreement as to how to proceed, meaning that he could be available for a bargain price as Milan wouldn't want to lose him on a free transfer.

And finally, the last player to round out this Serie A-based quartet is Fiorentina's Dusan Vlahovic. Proving that he's no one season-wonder, the young Serbian striker has hit the ground running once more, and has netted eight goals for the Viola this season, including a hat-trick recently as Fiorentina beat Spezia 3-0.

It'll be interesting to see which players on Conte's short-list end up making the move to London, but one thing is certain: Conte intends to try and work his magic at Tottenham and turn them from has-beens to serious title contenders - much in the same way he did at Juventus and Inter.
