How Tottenham could line up with FIVE new signings as they adopt new transfer approach to poach up-and-coming starlets
1st December 2021

TOTTENHAM are eyeing five young talents from across Europe to bolster Antonio Conte's squad.

Conte is looking to re-build Spurs and fire them back into top-four contention.


And the club have identified five young stars playing across Europe to help them reach their target.

Serie A trio Nicolo Barella, Franck Kessie and Dusan Vlahovic are all being eyed for potential moves.

Conte is familiar with Euro 2020 winner Barella, having worked with him last season at Inter.

The midfielder is hot property, with fellow Premier League teams Liverpool and Chelsea also holding an interest.

Inter won't part from Barella on the cheap either.

AC Milan midfield general Kessie is also an option for Spurs, and he'll be considerably cheaper than Barella.

The Ivory Coast international's contract expires next June and can agree a pre-contract in January, or alternatively, clubs could try and tempt Milan into selling in the winter window.

And Fiorentina's Vlahovic could be the priciest out of the five.

The 21-year-old forward has 14 goals in 16 games across all competitions this season.

His fine form has seen him attract interest from many of Europe's top clubs.

The likes of Newcastle, Arsenal, Manchester United and Juventus are all tracking the £70million man.

Vlahovic could be an young, ideal replacement for Harry Kane, who could be subject to more transfer interest next summer.

Spurs could also turn their attention towards the Bundesliga to bolster their defensive and midfield options.

Borussia Monchengladbach's Denis Zakaria can play a number of roles.


He can fill in at centre-back, but he's at his best when playing in the middle of the park.

Luckily for Spurs, like Kessie, Zakaria is out of contract next summer and could be picked up on the cheap.

But again, Tottenham would face competition from a number of clubs.

The final man Spurs are looking to pick up is Fenerbahce centre-back Kim Min-jae.

Being a South Korean international, Kim is someone Son Heung-min will know well.

The 25-year-old stands at six-foot-three and is nicknamed 'monster', possessing qualities Conte could do with in his backline.

Kim and Zakaria could start alongside Cristian Romero in the back three.

Serie A duo Barella and Kessie would man the midfield.

And Vlahovic would almost certainly start up front for the Prem outfit.

Alternatively, Conte could look to change shape an go to a back four.

In that instance, Zakaria would be pushed into midfield.

Sergio Reguilon and Emerson Royal would be asked to drop deeper and play alongside Kim and Romero.
