Journalist Pete O’Rourke believes that Tottenham Hotspur will be offering Antonio Conte assurances ahead of a proposed new deal.
It was reported by The Athletic earlier this month that Tottenham are set to open fresh talks with the Italian manager over his future and January transfer plans.
The source suggests that Spurs are hopeful of agreeing to fresh terms before the turn of the year with the 53-year-old’s current contract expiring at the end of the season.
Conte has quickly put his stamp on the Lilywhites squad but O’Rourke has said that further investment will be key to the renewal talks.
Speaking to This Is Futbol he said: “So I think the main promise will be that funds will be made available and that Spurs will be challenging for silverware and challenging all the rival clubs for the big signatures that are out there in January and next summer.”
TIF Thoughts on O’Rourke’s comments…
Will Conte sign a new contract?
In the summer Fabio Paratici then signed around £120m worth of talent to help Conte lift the north London club into the lofty position of fourth and with a strong chance of once again securing elite European football next season.
However, Conte has claimed in the past that he needs further investment in order to compete on all fronts and it seems like that could be crucial to keeping the erratic head coach in charge.
He only stays in a job for an average of 14 months and considering he has been at Tottenham for a similar period already, tying him down to an extended deal would be a huge relief.
