Antonio Conte has already made his list of transfer targets known to the Tottenham Hotspur board, with the announcement of his arrival as manager being imminent.


The former Chelsea manager is set to be unveiled as Spurs's new head coach on Tuesday, after an agreement was reached to sign a contract until June 2023.


As a result, according to transfer specialist Yoonis Mohamed, Conte has already informed the Spurs board that he wants Fiorentina's Dusan Vlahovic as well as AC Milan duo Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli in January, as he aims to completely revitalise the side.

All three of these players have their contract up at the end of the season, and so the board might be enticed to snatch them up on cheaper deals, especially given the three players' reluctance to sign new deals.


Vlahovic is seemingly the priority, given Harry Kane's uncertain future at the club, but Conte seemingly wants to strengthen every other department, feeling that these signings will help the club return to the European spots.


Conte's appointment comes after Spurs sacked Nuno Espirito Santo just four months after he was put in charge, with the dismal 3-0 defeat at home against Manchester United being the final nail in the coffin.


The loss meant that Spurs had lost five of their last seven Premier League games, and Conte has been tasked with immediately improving the side, with them currently in ninth.


While Spurs had made an attempt to recruit Conte in the summer, there was a disagreement over the club's transfer policy, leading to the move breaking down.


However, new Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici worked hard ever since the Portuguese manager was sacked in order to get Conte in, a manager that he worked with during his time at Juventus.
