‘Antonio Conte will be gone’ if Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy does not back him in the transfer window as deals for Adama Traore and Luis Diaz fall through


Tottenham fans will be ‘panicking’ about the future of Antonio Conte and their club, if the Italian is not backed with signings in the January transfer window.

With less than a few days remaining before the market shuts, the club are yet to bring in any new faces, which could cause the former Chelsea boss to leave despite only just joining in November 2021.

Given the Italian’s track record of needing new players to change the fortunes of the club, it’s a major surprise to see Spurs so quiet in the transfer market.

The club had been strongly linked with many players over the course of January such as Wolves winger Adama Traore and Porto star Luis Diaz.

However, neither look set to arrive with deals to Barcelona and Liverpool, respectively, edging closer.

With two top targets not arriving through the door in north London, Spurs fans might be concerned about the future of Conte, if he does not get what he wants, reckons Perry Groves.

“Antonio Conte said ‘I spoke to Daniel Levy, I said I would give him my report after a month, he said no, it’s going to be two months.’ He gave it to him two months and they are the players I want gone,” the former Arsenal winger told the Sports Bar on talkSPORT.

“Levy has got a little bit of previous with [Mauricio] Pochettino where he didn’t get players out that Pochettino wanted gone.

“If that happens, and if Spurs don’t sign anybody in this transfer window, Antonio Conte will be gone.

“He’s got previous, he’s got previous at Juventus, he’s got previous at Inter Milan.

“At Chelsea he sulked because, it wasn’t his choice of players going in, but that was never going to be the case anyway, but he still wanted that battle.

“If I were Spurs fans, I’d be panicking of the long-term future of my club, they’ve got an elite manager, he’s an elite manager, and he will change the culture at that football club.

“He’s got bang average players there at the moment, and he’s done okay, was it one defeat in ten wasn’t it?

“I think they’ve won four, drawn one at home in the Premier League so he is making it with a average bunch of players.

Conte is a brilliant manager who has shown in the past that he can improve players, but that’s not to say he does not need any signings

“They should be doing everything they can to keep that manager happy [the Spurs hierarchy].

“I think they would be panicking a bit [Tottenham fans], he would haven’t gone there unless he had assurances that they were going to spend money.

“They are really going to be struggling if they don’t get two or three players in this transfer window.”
