Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte is reportedly ready to become the next manager of Paris Saint-Germain.
Although they were crowned Ligue 1 champions on Saturday, former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has had a difficult season with the club after crashing out of the French Cup on penalties to Nice and being beaten by Real Madrid in the Champions League knockout stages. That has led to rumours the Argentine will be sacked ‘imminently’ by PSG – and Conte could be the man to replace him.
It comes as Spurs prepare for what could be a potentially bombshell summer amid reports Harry Kane could leave the club as well. And Tottenham are keeping tabs on Inter Milan forward Martin Satriano as a potential replacement. And it has been revealed what Antonio Conte said to his Spurs players in the dressing room after the draw at Brentford as well as his big summer transfer overhaul.
Here are Mirror Football’s latest Tottenham Hotspur headlines.
Conte’s Brentford verdict and summer plans
Antonio Conte “barely spoke a word” to his players in the changing room after the 0-0 draw with Brentford, according to reports.
Spurs’ Champions League hopes suffered a blow as they limped to a disappointing 0-0 draw at Brentford on Saturday. And football.london reports that Spurs boss Conte was not happy with the performance.
The report also adds that the game has influenced Conte’s desire to bring in seven fresh faces in the summer transfer window – while 10 players could leave. And he is said to want to bring in higher quality players – similar to those he has become accustomed to working with at Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan.
Kane replacement targeted
Spurs are keeping tabs on Inter Milan forward Martin Satriano as a potential replacement for Harry Kane.
England captain Kane missed out on a huge transfer switch to Manchester City last summer and reports continue to link him with a move away from north London. That has led to Spurs casting an eye out for potential replacements, and the club’s scouts have been left impressed by Uruguayan Satriano during his loan spell in Brest this season.
The forward has bagged four goals in 11 appearances – although Chelsea are also following the striker’s progress.
Conte’s PSG offer
Antonio Conte has reportedly offered to take over at Paris Saint-Germain as question marks linger over the future of Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine is widely expected to be removed from his role as PSG boss over the club’s failure to progress beyond the round of 16 in this season’s Champions League. And according to Le Parisien (via GFFN ), Pochettino will be removed by PSG “imminently” and Conte is willing to move to Paris on a two-year deal.
That could spell disaster for Spurs after the Italian only took charge of the club in November following the short-lived reign of Nuno Espirito Santo.
