Tottenham looking to appoint Antonio Conte as new manager and Paratici as director of football

Conte explains why Inter signed Alexis Sanchez

Tottenham Hotspur are thought to be interested in appointing Antonio Conte as their new manager.

The Italian held Inter Milan went the Scudetto after 11 years and he has decided to try out a new challenge next season.

According to reports, the Premier League club are looking to bring in the former Chelsea manager and Fabio Paratici as the club’s director of football.

Tottenham sacked Jose Mourinho midway through the season after a series of disappointing performances and Ryan Mason was handed the managerial role as the interim boss.

They will need to bring in a top-quality long term replacement for Mourinho and Antonio Conte is one of the best managers in the world right now.

He has managed in the Premier League before with Chelsea and he guided the Blues to the Premier League title.

Tottenham will be hoping that Conte can have a similar impact on the club next season.

The Londoners have missed out on Champions League football for the next season and key players like Harry Kane are angling for a move away.

Bringing in a proven winner like Conte could convince the Tottenham stars to stay beyond this summer and help the side end their trophy drought.

Antonio Conte knows the Premier League well from his time at Chelsea and he could make an immediate impact if he moves to White Hart Lane in the summer.

Furthermore, Conte has a reputation of bringing out the best in struggling individuals and therefore the likes of Dele Alli could benefit from his arrival.
