The Italian has repeatedly asked for patience from the Spurs fans but it was put to him that with chairman Daniel Levy saying that he wanted to build a cathedral for football with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

 

“There is a fantastic stadium and there is a fantastic training ground and the infrastructure in this club is very very top”

“Then there is the football aspect – I think that in this moment we are not on the same level, we are on a level that takes patience, takes time.”

Antonio Conte is convinced that Tottenham squad needs as many as six new signings if they are to compete for silverware next season.

Antonio Conte made just two signings in January after taking over from Nuno Espirito Santo at Tottenham Hotspur, but the Italian is keen to add to his squad further.

Spurs are currently battling it out in the race for fourth place in the Premier League table and the lure of a return to the Champions League, which has not been achieved since the days of Mauricio Pochettino and is keen to make as many as six new summer signings to help the club compete in the 2022-23 Premier League season.

According to The Telegraph, Conte is keen to add a centre-back, a right wing-back, two midfielders, a forward and a backup goalkeeper. In addition to these targets, Kulusevski, who has impressed since moving to north London, could join permanently before the end of his 18-month loan.

Current second-choice keeper Pierluigi Gollini is only on loan, and may end up returning to parent club Atalanta. England international Sam Johnstone is among those being considered by Spurs, and the West Brom man – a free agent in the summer – would help from a homegrown quota perspective.

Other English players named in the Telegraph’s report include Djed Spence, whose form at right-back for Nottingham Forest has brought Premier League interest. Elsewhere, centre-back targets include Torino’s Gleison Bremer, while midfielder Christian Eriksen – currently at Brentford – could return to Spurs after playing under Conte at Inter Milan.

While the 52-year-old has been pleased with the improvement which Spurs have shown during his time at the helm, he is not prepared to be satisfied with the club competing for fourth place in the league.
