Antonio Conte to meet Tottenham squad at lunchtime after ‘£237m request’ to Daniel Levy – Diverse Bulletin

Antonio Conte will meet the Tottenham squad at lunchtime today, according to reports. Conte is set to sign an 18-month contract to become the next Spurs boss. Tottenham sacked Nuno Espirito Santo on Monday after just 10 Premier League matches in charge.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has moved fast to secure Conte after axeing Nuno.

The Italian was high on Levy’s wishlist in the summer but was unable to reach an agreement with the former Chelsea boss.

Spurs opted for Nuno instead after failing with a number of other top targets.

But five defeats in 10 league matches proved to be the downfall of the former Wolves boss.

And former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp says resolving the problems around Kane must be Conte’s priority.

Redknapp told Sky Sports News: “If I was the manager of that club right now and you took over the job, how do I get Harry Kane going? You need to have a conversation with him – ‘How do you feel about being at this club? Do you want to be here? Are you part of my plans?’.

“If he says no, I’d try to sell him in January. If he doesn’t want to be there, I think you’ve got to look at the situation where you’re going to give it all and make sure you get back to the level.

“I’m his biggest fan, Harry, but he’s not playing to the level that he wants at the moment.

“He doesn’t look as if he’s enjoying his football and that would be your first objective, can I get Harry Kane playing well alongside Son [Heung-min]?

“Get a system that works for the players and make sure you get that level back.”
