As reported by the Journal, the Tottenham Hotspur is advancing in the signing of Joao Palhinha in the next summer transfer market and meet one of Antonio Conte’s demands for next season. The summer transfer window will be very busy in North London.
The London team intends to put together a competitive team capable of fighting for important titles for next season. Antonio Conte has asked the club’s board to make signings to make a leap in quality at an individual level. It is a request that, if not fulfilled, the Italian will not continue at the club with the aim of going to PSG.
João Palhinha, Conte’s new target for the midfield
João Palhinha is one of the club’s new targets due to his impressive performance in recent years with Sporting de Portugal, with whom he managed to win the Portuguese first division title and transcend in the UEFA Champions League.
The Portuguese midfielder has a release clause of 60 million euros, but the Portuguese news portal confirms that Tottenham would be willing to reach 40 million euros in their first offer. Palinha is a profile that Conte likes a lot to be able to rotate in the first line of midfielders alongside names like Rodrigo Bentancur, Harry Winks and Pierre Emile Hojbjerg. The club is also looking to beef up the defensive line and attack, depending on what happens with Harry Kane.
