Tottenham to start contract talks with Antonio Conte TODAY with boss wanting assurances over January transfer plans | The Sun

ANTONIO CONTE and Tottenham are to hold fresh talks today over his future at the club, according to reports.

Conte's deal expires at the end of the season, but the North Londoners want him to sign a contract extension.

The Italian has done a fine job since arriving in November 2021, taking Spurs from eighth to the Champions League in less than seven months.

He's also beaten off a tough injury list to keep his side in the top four this season and also qualify for the last-16 in Europe's elite competition.

Conte will be hoping to continue the good work once the Prem resumes later this month, with Brentford away on Boxing Day.

But before then, The Athletic claim that the ex-Chelsea manager is set for talks over a new deal.

He wants Tottenham to back him in the market and match his ambitions of winning silverware.

So far in Conte's reign, Daniel Levy and Co have done exactly that, with the 53-year-old bringing in no fewer than NINE players in his two windows in charge.
