Tottenham Hotspur still have to work hard to get back into the top four of the Premier League. Disappointing performances at the start of the 2021/22 season saw them sack Nuno Espirito Santo and bring in Antonio Conte as his replacement.
Conte feels high difficulties in his journey so far. The Italian manager still has to work hard to get into the expected position. In addition, Tottenham were also eliminated from the European Conference Cup due to the COVID-19 problem that had infected their squad.
The inconsistency of Conte’s players made him re-urge the club management to bring in new players. Conte even said that recruitment for the short term was not a problem for him.
“I understand that the January transfer window is a difficult period, and it’s easier to bring in important players at the start of the season. At the same time, we know that when the opportunity arises, which may not be the best opportunity, but we need to do something.”
“I need to emphasize that the chances are maybe not the best, but we are in a situation where the quality of the squad must be improved given the number of players available,” Conte said in a press conference quoted by The Athletic.
The position of wing-back is a priority for Tottenham at this time. Adama Traore (Wolverhampton Wanderers) is one of the main players they are after. In addition, the quality of the front lines and defense also wants to be improved by the North London team.
