Jamie Redknapp tells Antonio Conte to strengthen Tottenham Hotspur in these two positions

Speaking after Tottenham Hotspur’s 6-2 win against Leicester City, Jamie Redknapp claimed that wing-backs is an area that Antonio Conte would still want to strengthen in the near future.

He told Sky Sports (h/t the Express), that Spurs have very good depth across the pitch. However, the former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder seems concerned about Conte’s options down the flanks.

“…Spurs do look very good, the options they’ve got off the bench and the players that are starting going forward are just a joke.”

“I only worry about the wing-back areas, I’m sure that’s an area he will want to strengthen given time. But so much to look forward to for Tottenham at the moment.”

Spurs already have Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon to play down the left flank. The former was signed on a free transfer from Inter Milan this summer while the latter has found favour under Conte.

Conte has options

Down the right flank, the Italian manager experimented with playing Lucas Moura in that position but the former PSG star is currently out injured. Emerson Royal has made himself a strong contender to start in that position each week.

Against the Foxes, however, Conte dropped the ex-Barcelona right-back in favour of starting Perisic down the right and Sessegnon down the left. Djed Spence arrived from Middlesbrough this summer for a considerable fee of £20 million.

The Englishman, however, is struggling for minutes. Spurs also signed Destiny Udogie from Udinese and loaned him back to the Serie A side for this season. Redknapp’s concerns may seem valid to some.

However, Conte has young options down that flank. In the past, he has shown that he has the ability to nurture players into world-class talent and hopefully, he can do the same here with the likes of Spence, Sessegnon, and others.
