TOTTENHAM look set for a major spending spree following the appointment of Antonio Conte.

SunSport understand chairman Daniel Levy will give Conte a whopping £150million water chest to spend on new recruits in the winter market.
And bookmakers Betfair have put together a list of their SIX most likely additions before the window closes on January 31.
Dusan Vlahovic – 5/1
Fiorentina Dusan Vlahovic is on the radar of several European heavyweights after another spectacular campaign.
The centre-forward banged in 21 goals in 37 Serie A appearances last season and has already notched eight this campaign – including a hat-trick against Spezia last week.
He's also proven that he's capable of doing on the international stage having scored six in 12 appearances for Serbia.
Fiorentina have already confirmed that the 21-year-old will not be signing a new contract beyond June 2023.
And reports in Italy have suggested that Conte has earmarked the striker as a key signing.
Tottenham’s most likely January signings
- Dusan Vlahovic – 5/1
- Marcelo Brozovic – 6/1
- Franck Kessie – 7/1
- Alessandro Bastoni – 8/1
- Donny van de Beek – 9/1
- Federico Chiesa – 20/1

Marcelo Brozovic – 6/1
Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic is available any 6/1 to join Tottenham in January.
The Croatian midfielder is out of contract next summer, and free to discuss terms with clubs outside of Italy from January onwards.
However, Spurs will have a fight on their hands with Premier League rivals Newcastle also showing interest.
Franck Kessie – 7/1
Franck Kessie has been tipped to be the first signing of the Conte era.
The defensive midfielder is another who's out of contract in June 2022 and could be signed for a bargain fee in January.
Reports claim Spurs managing director Fabio Paratici met with the Ivorian's agent back in August.
Alessandro Bastoni – 8/1
Conte is priced at 8/1 to return to former club Inter Milan for defender Alessandro Bastoni.
The 22-year-old returned to Inter from a season on loan with Parma in 2019 and was immediately given a regular role in the starting eleven under Conte.
Bastoni shares an excellent relationship with Conte, and publicly praised him for his development.
He said: "I thank him because he immediately trusted me. I arrived from a good season in Parma, then I did well to repay his trust. Without his teaching, I would not be here now."
Donny van de Beek – 9/1
Tottenham are available at 9/1 to rescue Donny van de Beek from Manchester United.
The midfielder has made just four Premier League starts under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since his arrival from Ajax in September 2020.
With a resurgence in his United career looking unlikely – Van de Beek has reportedly changed his representative in order to get a move inn January.
Federico Chiesa – 20/1
The least likely arrival in Betfair's odds is Juventus star Federico Chiesa.
The Italian hero, 24, scored two crucial goals to help Italy lift the European Championships this summer.
However, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims the winger is considered 'untouchable' by Juve chiefs.
