Tottenham boss Conte targets SIX summer signings and wants Levy to battle Man Utd for Leeds star Kalvin Phillips

ANTONIO CONTE is eyeing a summer overhaul as he bids to turn Tottenham into genuine title contenders.

Reports suggest as many as SIX signings could walk through the doors at Spurs in the upcoming transfer window.

Italian boss Conte is eyeing upgrades all over the park – with a new centre-back, right wing-back, two midfielders, striker and No2 goalkeeper all on his wishlist.

And Leeds star Kalvin Phillips is one of those being targeted, according to the Telegraph.

Conte is understood to be a huge fan of the England midfielder, who has just over two years left on his Elland Road contract.

But any potential move for the 26-year-old will be met by stiff competition from Manchester United.

There are also doubts as to whether Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would be able to match any figures put forward by the Red Devils.

A move for Phillips is seen as favourable as it would help Spurs meet Uefa’s homegrown player rule.

Clubs competing in Europe are able to name 17 foreign players, with 16 overseas stars currently in Spurs’ first-team squad.

Phillips though would not fall under that category.


The same can be said for Djed Spence, who has sent shockwaves around the country with his stunning performances on loan at Nottingham Forest this season, and is another target.

Sam Johnstone too falls under homegrown status, with Spurs also reportedly set to battle Manchester United to snap up the West Brom stopper on a free transfer.

Other targets include former playmaker Christian Eriksen, who is taking the Premier League by storm once again at Brentford.

The 30-year-old’s Bees deal expires in the summer, with Eriksen tipped to secure an emotional return to Spurs as part of a double swoop alongside Leicester star Youri Tielemans.

And SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this month that Spurs are prepared to go head-to-head with Arsenal in a £60million scrap for Tielemans’ Foxes team-mate James Maddison.
