Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte admits he is keen to bring in more players

According to Football London, Antonio Conte stated at a press conference on Tuesday in South Korea that Tottenham Hotspur are still looking to add some reinforcements to the team.

Richarlison, who cost an astounding £60 million, is the club’s star summer acquisition. Yves Bissouma is another good player who came from Brighton. The Spurs signed Clement Lenglet on loan from Barcelona while Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster came as free agents. 

Conte promised to make the team competitive in the Premier League, Champions League, and the two domestic cups and he appeared delighted with the North London club’s early success in the transfer window. 

“It was good to sign five players quickly. Our plan was very clear about the positions in which we needed to improve. We did it. The club worked very well in this window. For every coach to have players quickly is very important because you can work with them and put them into the idea of (our) football.”

The Italian manager added that the coming season won’t be an easy one due to the hectic nature and implied that he would be interested in bringing some more fresh legs if there is such an opportunity in the market. 

“Now we’ll see what happens. We are always looking to strengthen the squad if there is the opportunity. We want to improve numerically the squad. I repeat to play four competitions is difficult. You need a really good squad, with the numerical aspect and the quality aspect.”

Before the start of the transfer window, Conte wanted a centre-back, a right wing-back, two midfielders, a forward and a backup goalkeeper. Even though most of his wishes are fulfilled there are still some positions that require reinforcements.

Conte’s search for a right wing-back hasn’t been completed yet, but considering they are targeting Middlesbrough’s Djed Spence, they could be close to signing one. Additional acquisitions for other positions are also possible.

The links to Christian Eriksen also imply that a playmaker might be added to the team in spite of the fact that Conte tends to use two defensively minded midfielders in his 3-4-3 formation.

After losing Bergwijn, Spurs might possibly want another attacker. Memphis Depay has emerged as a possibility but he seems to be happy at Barcelona right now. It would be wise for the board to shift their focus to other targets.  

There is still adequate time left in the ongoing transfer window, so, It remains to be seen how many players Tottenham can sign this summer.
