The new Tottenham manager is already sorting out his transfer targets.

Tottenham Hotspur’s new manager Antonio Conte appears to be busy sorting out his transfer targets, as he wants to elevate North Londoners to newer heights.

According to a report from Tuttosport, the Italian manager is interested in the services of Torino striker Andrea Belotti, who will be a free agent next summer.

The Italian striker has refused to extend his deal with the Turin club and he will be allowed to negotiate with foreign clubs in January.

Conte had previously tried to sign the 27-year-old at Chelsea when the latter was valued at 84m pounds but to no avail in the end.

Now, the Italian manager expects Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to give the go-ahead for Belotti’s signing.

Belotti has been one of Italy’s best strikers over the years, racking up consistent goal-scoring numbers. His strike against Sampdoria last week marked his 100th goal in Serie A, which is a no mean feat.

Belotti’s best-ever season was 2016/17 one where he ended up scoring 26 goals in Serie A.

Besides, Conte is reportedly keen on raiding the Italian top-flight for Dusan Vlahovic, who will also be available for free next summer.

However, there are a host of European giants keeping tabs on the Fiorentina striker, who has been in stellar form over the last two seasons.

Belotti would be a brilliant addition to Tottenham given his experience and the prospect that he will arrive for free.
