Football Insider have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have opened preliminary talks over potentially signing Conor Coady from Wolves.
However, if Football Insider’s latest update is to be believed, Spurs have not yet given up hope of snapping up the 28-year-old.
The report reveals that Nuno Espirito Santo discussed Coady as a potential signing before joining Tottenham and is now pushing hard for the North Londoners to sign the Wolves captain.
It is asserted that the Portuguese coach regarded Coady as his ‘lieutenant’ at Molineux and wants him to take up a similar leadership role at Spurs.

If Spurs did move for Coady, that would unquestionably be a sign that Nuno wants to employ a back three next season.
While I do not think Coady is reliable enough to play in a back four, he is arguably up there with the best sweepers in the Premier League when is playing in a back three due to his excellent reading of the game and his passing range.
