Tottenham Hotspur will approach the summer transfer market looking to strengthen four particular areas of Antonio Conte’s first team, according to The Athletic‘s Jack Pitt-Brooke.

The report claims that the north Londoners will look to bring a left-sided central defender to play alongside Cristian Romero and Eric Dier at the expense of Ben Davies who currently occupies the position.

There will be a further focus placed on the defence with both the left and right wing-back roles under the microscope by attempting to recruit a fresh face on either flank.

Antonio Conte places a great emphasis on the role of wing-backs within his side with Spurs reverting to selecting Matt Doherty on the right in recent weeks ahead of summer signing Emerson Royal, while Ryan Sessegnon and Sergio Reguilon have failed to make the left wing-back role their own.

Spurs have been without a back-up striker since Carlos Vinicius returned to Benfica from his season-long loan spell in the 2020/21 campaign and are looking to bolster their cover for Harry Kane.

While all four positions seem logical in looking for reinforcements, it is concerning that the role of a creative midfielder is being overlooked once again. 

Spurs have struggled time and time again to break down defences with a killer pass and Fabio Paratici should look no further than Christian Eriksen as the man who can come in and fill the gap.
