The Athletic have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur may face a ‘stressful summer’ as they have to balance building for the long-term and strengthening the squad for next season.
It remains to be seen whether Conte will still be in charge of Tottenham next season, with reports over recent weeks linking the Italian with the Paris Saint-Germain hot seat (Le Parisien).
The Spurs head coach has refused to commit his long-term future at the club, while also denying the PSG links, remarking instead that he will meet with the club’s hierarchy to discuss their future plans at the end of the season (Football.London).
It was previously reported that Conte wants to add six new additions to the squad during the summer transfer window (Telegraph).
The Athletic have now stated there is ‘some talk’ within Tottenham that the club have decided to spend ‘every available pound’ on players who would immediately strengthen the first-team, even if it means missing out on talented youngsters they would love to sign.
However, it is explained that Spurs’ managing director of football Fabio Paratici remains committed to his policy of helping the club sign talented young players in their early twenties who would develop at the club.

Levy and the Spurs hierarchy know that they simply cannot afford another failed managerial appointment. They will have to find some balance between signing experience stars to strengthen the first team in order to keep Conte happy while also continuing to build for the future.
