Tottenham Hotspur fans are hoping that their club are about to embark on a major rebuild. They are currently sitting in ninth place in the Premier League and have won as many games as they have lost (five), however, their overhaul may have to wait until next summer based on the comments of Spurs’ Director of Football Fabio Paratici.

Former Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo was sacked on Monday after just ten league games in charge, with his negative tactics and inability to get the best out of his players drawing criticism.

Even when victorious, Spurs rarely looked like a side capable of mounting a title charge.

Under 48 hours later, it was announced that four-time Serie A winning manager Antonio Conte would take charge at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Conte is known for his ‘no nonsense’ and aggressive style of management, but the former Chelsea boss may not want to upset the applecart too much during the first season of his tenure as the club don’t appear to be expecting to be busy in the January transfer window.

Director of Football Paratici was asked by the media whether he had spoken with Conte about potential singings in January, he replied: “Not at all, not at all.

“We trust in our players, we trust a lot, so we are focused to be better like a club, like a team.”

He was then asked whether he thinks the current Spurs squad has enough talent in it to win ‘big trophies’, to which the Italian answered: “I think yes, we are here to do our best to win a trophy.

“Big or small, I don’t know this word ‘big trophy’ or ‘small trophy’.

“We are sure to do our best every game, to build the best we can season and in the next seasons, because sometimes you have to be patient to achieve results, you have to be ready to suffer, to sacrifice yourself for the group.

Though it would be unlikely for the 49-year-old to make Spurs’ transfer plan for the upcoming window, the response could eke out improvement from some of the club’s underperforming stars whose futures in north London may have been in doubt.

English midfielders Dele Alli and Harry Winks have both been linked with moves away from Spurs over the past few months after looking unlikely to regain their starting spots in the squad.

However, Conte is known for giving his opportunities to prove they fit into his 3-4-3 system and therefore both could be given another chance.

Striker Harry Kane may also have had his future decided for him – again – as it does not appear that the management are planning on signing a replacement or even a backup for the centre forward, implying he will remain at the club.

The 28-year-old attempted to force a move to Manchester City over the summer but Pep Guardiola’s side were unwilling to match Daniel Levy’s £160m asking price for the forward.

According to football.london, Kane is excited to play under Conte, who puts a lot of faith in his natural finisher, and feels he will benefit from the creative system that the former Blues boss is expected to implement.

With no signings planned over the summer, it may be a quiet first month of 2022 for Spurs and that should give the entirety of the squad a boost to prove that they are good enough to be involved in Conte’s major project.
