Antonio Conte believes it is not possible Tottenham can challenge Liverpool for the Premier League title next season as the gap is too large as Jurgen Klopp has created a monster at Anfield. If you did not believe us when we first said that Tottenham could win the Premier League next season, maybe you will after seeing the terrifying XI Conte can bring into the fray. Antonio Conte has already added Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma to his team over the summer transfer window, and this will not end Tottenham’s spending. Aside from the Antonio Conte personnel considerations, Conte will also want to have the confidence Tottenham are willing to attempt to fulfil his ambitions and build the team.
If Antonio Conte can maintain his late-season momentum, and while he is still getting a lot out of the last year’s joint Golden Boot winner, Son Heung-min, then Conte can yet push Tottenham further up the table next season, mainly if Harry Kane can get off to a good start in the new campaign. Tottenham won their first three league games under Nuno Espirito Santo last season, including a victory on opening day against Manchester City, but losing five of the next seven meant the curtains came down on the former Wolves man and the beginning of the Antonio Conte era.
Spurs, who displaced Arsenal in fourth place and Champions League football, are now hoping they can again topple Manchester City, thanks to their acquisition of Gabriel Jesus. Tottenham is nearing a Ps 50 million valuation for Gabriel Jesus from Premier League champions. Arsenal is reported to have approached Atletico Madrid forward Alvaro Morata if Tottenham were successful in their bid to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.
With three crucial signings not breaking the bank, you could see Tottenham shaping up with a much stronger defensive back five compared to one filled with Ben Davies, Emerson Royal, or even Sergio Reguilon. In all, we have introduced three defensive signings, as it is within Konte’s starting back five that the current Tottenham team lacks the resources and quality to challenge for a title. Tottenham has the best stadium and training grounds in the country. This squad has bought Antonio Conte’s ideas, world-class Harry Kane and Son Heung-min players, exciting youngsters in Dejan Kulusevski and Romero, and Champions League football returning next season.
Antonio Conte has rejuvenated the Tottenham side since he was appointed at the end of 2021, taking the club into the fourth position. Still, he is never one to rest on his laurels, and he will be hoping for the side to go up against teams such as Liverpool and Manchester City this season.
