Antonio Conte is reportedly set to coach Tottenham soon. The Italian coach will replace the position left by Nuno Espirito Santo.
Spurs have just parted ways with Nuno. The Portuguese man was sacked after Spurs lost 3-0 to Manchester United.
Now it is reported that Conte has reached an agreement with Tottenham. He will soon sign a contract and start coaching in London.
Here are five Tottenham players who will benefit from the presence of Antonio Conte.
Tottenham recruited Joe Rodon in 2020. The 24-year-old is a regular in the Wales national team.
However, Rodon has not had many opportunities to play at Tottenham this season. He has only played for Nuno Espirito Santo five times this season.
Antonio Conte likes to use a three-man back scheme. Rodon will definitely get more playing time under Conte.
Harry Winks is going through a difficult period at Tottenham. The English midfielder did not get many opportunities to play under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Winks has made just nine appearances this season.
Winks’ fate at Tottenham may change after the arrival of Antonio Conte. The 25-year-old player can snatch a place in the Spurs midfield.
Matt Doherty previously coached Nuno Espirito Santo at Wolves. However, the 29-year-old has often been on the bench after coming to Spurs.
This season, Doherty has only played five times in all competitions. However, his career could bounce back under the tutelage of Antonio Conte.
Conte really likes attacking full-backs. Doherty is an experienced player and could be the full-back that Conte wants.
Tottenham have spent a lot of money to buy Tanguy Ndombele. However, the appearance of the French midfielder so far has not been satisfactory.
Antonio Conte reportedly wanted Ndombele while coaching at Inter Milan. Conte must be eager to work with Ndombele at Spurs.
This season, Ndombele has made nine appearances in all competitions. Da managed to score two goals from his appearance.
Harry Kane failed to move to Manchester City in the transfer market last summer. This seems to affect the appearance of the England captain.
Kane has had a hard time breaking into the opponent’s goal in the Premier League. He has only scored one goal from nine matches in the highest caste of English football.
Antonio Conte is known to be able to bring out the best in his strikers. He has Diego Costa and Romelu Lukaku who have excelled under him.
