Younger members of the Tottenham Hotspur squad are said to be concerned about the potential appointment of Antonio Conte and whether it would be good news for them, according to the Evening Standard.

However, their concerns are not shared by some senior members of the dressing room, who are reportedly excited at the prospect of working under a big-name head coach, who has enjoyed recent success within his managerial career.

The report claims that the excitement is not shared by everyone in the dressing room with some of the younger members of the squad left concerned whether the Italian’s appointment would be good news for them.

Talks between Spurs and Conte are said to be planned to continue over the duration of the weekend, with the club hopeful that the search for Jose Mourinho’s successor is nearly at an end.

A number of Tottenham’s younger players spent time out on loan last season to further their first-team footballing education including Ryan Sessegnon, Oliver Skipp, Juan Foyth, Harvey White and Troy Parrott.

Mourinho had revealed that he had planned for 17-year-old striker Dane Scarlett to be part of his first-team for next season before the Portuguese was sacked in April.
