Harry Kane Tottenham contract update amid Liverpool ‘contact’

Latest Tottenham transfer news and rumours aheaad of the summer.

There can't have been too many better weeks than the one just gone for Tottenham fans.

With qualification for the Champions League secured at Carrow Road meaning that Tottenham finished above Arsenal for the sixth season running, now attention turns to the summer transfer window.

Thankfully Antonio Conte has now been confirmed as staying on for next season, with reports across the board explaining that managing director of football Fabio Paratici's trip to Turin on Friday to meet with the Spurs manager has been successful.

The backdrop is that the club has announced a £150m investment from majority shareholder ENIC. That will give the north London side the space to operate this summer, in what is rightly now a very exciting time for Lilywhites supporters.

It is well documented that Tottenham are looking for at least one defender to arrive this summer, as well as a wing-back, with additions in midfield and attack too.

Here are the latest links as Conte further shapes the playing squad to his liking, with the hope that the London side can compete for honours in 2022/23.
