Expect Tottenham to get their transfer business done early in the transfer window, as Conte 1) continues to affect the club’s operating practices under chairman Daniel Levy, and 2) notoriously prefers to have a settled squad for the first day of preseason to begin his meticulous tactical work.
In fact, the signings have already begun with one veteran in the door, and another reportedly being finalized, to fill very specific roles in the squad for the upcoming season.
Below we roundup the latest done deals, reports and rumors and give our analysis on what’s going on as Joe Prince-Wright (JPW), Nicholas Mendola (NM) and Andy Edwards (AE) will guide you through a hectic next few months.

June 2 – Spurs set sights on Alessandro Bastoni & one more center back
According to a report from well-sourced Football.London reporter Alasdair Gold, Antonio Conte would like to see two center backs signed this summer, with Inter Milan star Alessandro Bastoni priority no. 1. The 23-year-old Italian international (12 caps) made 33 appearances, for Conte, during Inter Milan’s Serie A title-winning season of 2020-21. (Ivan Perisic, who Spurs announced earlier this week, made 32 appearances in the same side.)
Per Gold’s report, Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet, Villarreal’s Pau Torres and Fenerbahce’s Kim Min-jae are all under consideration to join Conte and, perhaps, Bastoni, in north London. Thus, Conte would feel supremely confident with six reliably tested options for three spots in his 3-4-3 system. Cristian Romero was fantastic down the stretch of the 2021-22 season, while Eric Dier and Ben Davies shored up the center and left side of defense, and Davinson Sanchez slotted in for the injured Romero to finish the season with three straight clean sheets.
