Tottenham could make a move to sign West Ham striker Michail Antonio in the January transfer window, according to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur. 

New Spurs boss Antonio Conte is in the process of restructuring the team following his appointment over a fortnight ago and is likely in the process of drafting up a list of his desired incomings. 

The former Chelsea manager has often made his expectations known regarding the strengthening of his squads in the past, and he will likely do the same during his stint in North London. 

Conte, who already appears to have made Spurs more solid defensively, faces the challenge of getting the side looking more threatening going forward, despite the obvious firepower of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son. 

Spurs have scored the least number of goals in the Premier League’s top 10, which hasn’t been helped by Kane being stranded on just a single tally in the division so far. 

As such, Konur claims Spurs could be looking to bolster Conte’s options in attack, and are looking the way of West Ham striker Antonio for a potential pick-up in the winter. 

The 31-year-old has been a key player for David Moyes’ side this season and currently sits on six goals and three assists in the Premier League. 

Antonio scored the winner when Spurs and West Ham met last month, which culminated in the Hammers claiming a 1-0 win at the London Stadium.

Honestly, this seems ridiculously unlikely given how well Antonio is doing at West Ham this season, so they haven’t really got a reason to offload. 

Plus, with Spurs and West Ham not really having the best of relationships, nothing really points to a move materialising – especially in January where fining replacements are tricky.
