Antonio Conte wants Nicolo Barella if he stays as a Tottenham Hotspur manager next season. The Italian manager wants to upgrade his midfield options, as the north London club has struggled to create chances from open play this season. A more progressive midfielder will help Antonio Conte to implement his style of play. Also, after losing to AC Milan, Spurs are looking for other managers as Conte might not be the right man going forward.
The Italian manager is after Inter’s midfield as he is targeting Brozovic as well. Moreover, Conte is also fond of Calhanoglu, and the Spurs are eyeing him. The former Inter manager wants to bring the former players that helped him to win the Scudetto. While at Spurs he is struggling with limited options, and wants some quality backups. Barella would be an ideal player to elevate Spurs’ midfield, but they will have to make a huge offer to convince Inter.
Conte wants the Liverpool target Nicolo Barella
The other club from the Premier League that are looking to improve its midfield options are Liverpool. The Reds are also willing to splash a big amount to sign the Italian midfielder. But they might not offer him Champions League football next season. While the Spurs are still sitting in the fourth spot. However, Barella is not looking for a move away from Inter at the moment. The Italian midfielder has evolved at Inter and is looking to improve more and win more trophies with Inter.
Conte is willing to extend his contract that ends in the summer if Daniel Levy agrees to improve the quality of his side. Bringing Barella in is one of the requests from the Italian manager. While the Spurs chairman is also looking at other managers that can help in ending the silverware drought at Tottenham.
