Tottenham predicted starting next season - if Antonio Conte gets all his transfer targets this summer
Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is building a team that most opponents will not want to face.
Tottenham have been busy in the transfer window already with Antonio Conte looking to build a side that has the ability to compete both in the Premier League and the Champions League.
The Lillywhites defied expectations to snatch that all-important Champions League spot ahead of rivals Arsenals - and the difference that makes has been crystal clear already.
Fraser Forster has arrived from Southampton to rival Hugo Lloris for the number one position while the experienced Ivan Perisic is in town.
There is Yves Bissouma who turned down the chance to join Aston Villa in January and has instead moved to north London.
There are still a lot of names being linked to Spurs as Daniel Levy finally backs the world class Antonio Conte.
It’s been a drastic change of atmosphere at Tottenham, with the club moving from desperately holding on to their best players, to actually attracting some of the top talent in the world.
When the likes of Harry Winks and Steven Bergwijn leave there will be space to bring players that suit the ideas the Italian manager wants to play next season.
Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni is high on the list of wants, while Djed Spence from Middlesbrough has been widely mentioned too.
The left side of the Spurs defence has been occupied by Ben Davies and even though he’s been very solid, there is general agreement on the need for strengthening.
So, with all the names being bundled around, here is the team Antonio Conte could play on the opening day against Southampton.
