Antonio Conte is in pursuit of five to six new signings this summer transfer window after the club secured a £150m cash injection.

Spurs have already completed the signing of Ivan Perisic on a free transfer and are very close to announcing goalkeeper Fraser Forster also.

The club will need to add to their squad depth as they now have the Champions League to contend with next season.

Here are the latest Tottenham transfer news and rumours.

Spurs look at midfielder McKennie

Conte had made it clear that his squad requires midfielder additions for the 2022-2023 season.

Spurs already made the signing of Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus in January and are now looking at his former teammate Weston McKennie, according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.

It is understood that a fee of around £34m will be needed to secure the services of the American.

The player only made the move to Italy last summer so it will be interesting to see if he is ready to leave the club this soon.

Koulibaly interest

Spurs have made it known to Napoli that they are in the market for their talisman Kalidou Koulibaly, according to news outlet Sport.

However, the defender would prefer to move to Spanish giants Barcelona, but their financial situation could make that deal impossible.

Koulibaly has expressed his wishes to leave the club and Spurs have contacted his representatives.

Conte will have to hope a deal between Napoli and Barcelona fails to materialise.

Lo Celso to leave permanently?

Villarreal manager Unai Emery will look to purchase Spurs midfielder Giovani Lo Celso on a permanent basis after a successful loan period for the player.

The Argentinian played a key role in the Spanish side reaching the Champions League semi-finals, having only joined the club in January.

A fee in the region of £20m will be enough for Conte to allow Lo Celso to leave London, according to Marca.
