Tottenham Hotspur have prepared a €280 million transfer budget to back Antonio Conte in January
According to Calciomercato (h/t ESPN), Tottenham Hotspur are ready to spend €280 million in the upcoming transfer windows to back their new coach Antonio Conte. They have also prepared a transfer list for potential signings that their new boss would like to make.
Earlier, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Conte and Daniel Levy have reached an agreement for the managerial job. The gaffer will have a contract that runs until 2023 and the appointment is said to be announced shortly.
Levy is said to be looking at the January transfer window to bring in reinforcements from Seria A. The transfer targets are to bolster all three areas of the pitch with the possibility of more additions to be made in the future.
Dusan Vlahovic is the most expensive target on this list as Fiorentina value apparently him at €80m. It is down to the interest from Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain coupled with the forward’s incredible form currently.
The Inter Milan duo of Marcelo Brozovic and Stefan de Vrij are the other targets on the list. The former Seria A coach has first-hand experience managing them as they were crucial in his journey to the Serie A title last season.
Alessio Romagnoli of AC Milan is the last target in the transfer list and could be a wise defensive addition if Spurs do formalize any potential interest in him. His contract is set to expire next year and negotiations for renewal have not made any progress.

Being an Italian and having spent time at Juve and Inter, Conte would know well about the players in the league. All four would offer more quality to the North London club and could help to challenge for titles.
However, only time will tell if they will end up in England or stay in Italy with their current clubs.
