Antonio Conte could be set for a busy January transfer window with Tottenham Hotspur, especially if the club remains in touch with the teams at the top of the Premier League table.

Spurs are currently third and sit just four points behind league leaders Arsenal and level with reigning champions Manchester City in second after winning seven, drawing two and losing just one of their opening ten league matches. It was a busy summer at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the North London club investing significant fees in players like Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Cristian Romero to bolster their ranks. However, they may need to add even more options midway through the season, especially with the FIFA World Cup likely to present a few challenges.
