A desire to begin his silverware collection places extra pressure for Spurs to produce results this season. Conte has been granted six new signings, including back-up and competition for Kane in the form of Richarlison, amid a feeling that something special is brewing in north London. Furthermore, the Italian suggests that more could be in the pipeline if an enticing opportunity arises.
While Kane’s future is an issue for the Lilywhites to worry about in a year’s time, they have pressing matters to attend to between now and the end of the summer. Transfer chief Fabio Paratici held meetings in Italy this week with finding solutions for Japhet Tanganga and Bryan Gil on the agenda, and a host of other incomings and outgoings are thought to have been discussed with AC Milan, Roma and Sampdoria.
