ANTONIO CONTE has demanded that Tottenham match his transfer ambitions this month, or he will be sacked as manager.
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has repeatedly refused to commit to staying with the club if reinforcements are not brought in this month.
Conte has only been in charge for ten weeks.
However, he has been vocal about his belief that Tottenham’s squad needs to be overhauled.
The Italian is looking for defensive players as well as Wolves wideman Adama Traore.
Tanguy Ndombele, the club’s record signing, is also on his way out.
For the Carabao Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday, he was dropped from the squad.
Conte replied, “Yeah, for sure,” when asked how important it was for the club to get its recruitment right to match his own ambition and reputation as a “winner.”
