The inter-director warns Antonio Conte about transfer sweep in January


Inter sports director Piero Ausilio has supported Antonio Conte to become a success at Tottenham Hotspur but has warned him to try to recruit one of his former players in January.

Conte left reigning Serie A champions Inter during the summer and has since been confirmed as a replacement for Nuno Espirito Santo, who was sacked by Tottenham in the wake of this weekend’s 3-0 loss to Manchester United.

The transfer rumor mill has been crazy since then and Conte has been tipped to move for a number of Inter players in January, with Stefan de Vrij, Milan Skriniar and Marcelo Brozovic three of many who will be linked with moves to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but Ausilio had none of the.

“The intention is to continue with this squad and in January no requests for any transfers will be taken into account,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We know that it is a team that has quality and that has a new coach who has taken over the group for a few months, so in the next transfer window we will only provide continuity to what started in June. Then until the summer will do others assessments, which will be the time to strengthen Inter, not to weaken. “

However, he took the opportunity to praise his former manager and wished him luck when he returned to the Premier League.

“I can say I’m happy and I wish him luck with this new adventure,” Ausilio said. “I know how happy he is to work in the Premier League, how much passion and how many skills he has, and I’m sure he’s going to do well with Spurs.”

Conte is expected to receive support during the upcoming transfer windows when Spurs try to counter five defeats in seven games, which has left them ten points behind league leader Chelsea and five who are away from West Ham in fourth place.

A new center-back is likely to be on the agenda as Spurs prepare to switch to a three-man defense, but reports from Italy have claimed that Conte plans to shake up all areas of the squad.

At the back, Skriniar, De Vrij and Inter team-mate Alessandro Bastoni have all been named as potential targets, as has Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt, but whether anyone would be interested in joining Spurs is unknown.

Brozovic and AC Milan’s Franck Kessie have been suggested as midfield goals, while Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic is reported to be Conte’s main target to strengthen in attack.
