So ahead of the potential transfer, let’s take a look at how Spurs could line up next season under Conte, should chairman Daniel Levy seal three key signings.
In between the sticks, captain Hugo Lloris is expected to keep his place, with none of the club’s other shot-stoppers really pushing him for a starting spot.
In the defence Conte does like to start with a three-man and it’s likely he will opt for this setup after doing so at Chelsea and Inter Milan.
Centre-back is a priority position for Spurs this summer after their troubles there over the past two years, so they could look again at signing Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan this summer due to their financial woes.
Joachim Andersen is one player Tottenham are interested in but that will all come down to Conte’s thinking if he takes on the hotseat, with Toby Alderweireld likely to get the nod to keep his place in a back three. In terms of wing-backs, Sergio Reguilon will be the favourite to start on the left due to his attacking qualities.
Lucas Moura could be a wildcard option to take on a new role in the team just as Victor Moses did during his time at Chelsea.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will surely keep his place in the midfield after his move from Southampton last summer and subsequently played every single minute in the Premier League.
Spurs might need some creativity in the middle and Tanguy Ndombele could thrive under the Italian as he can get on the ball and make things happen further forward.
Marcel Sabitzer would be a welcome addition in midfield if the Lilywhites decide to launch a move for the RB Leipzig man as he gets set to enter the final year of his contract.
The attack will undoubtedly form Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, as they showed how their partnership on the pitch benefitted the club.
