Here is your Spurs morning digest on Saturday, December 4th.

Spurs ‘offered’ Icardi

According to French outlet Footmercato, Tottenham have been offered a move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Mauro Icardi by his representatives.

The report claims that the forward is hoping to make a move to a club where he would find more game time, struggling to muscle his way into a side that contains Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

Along with Spurs, sides such as Newcastle United, Barcelona and Juventus have all been linked with a move for the 28-year-old.

However, given Conte’s history with the striker – whom he sold to PSG while in charge at Inter – it would seem unlikely that he would be interested in a reunion.

Conte’s verdict on Kane’s goal drought

Antonio Conte believes that goals will come for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, as the England captain currently endures a barren run of goal scoring form.

The 28-year-old has scored just one Premier League goal so far this season, falling behind the standard he set last season when he won the Golden Boot.

Conte said: “I’m sure Harry is going to score many goals. I’m sure he’s going to have a good performance in the same way he had against Brentford against every team we play.”

He said: “The first thing that I tried to do – and am doing – is find the right position for every player.

“In every position you have a double player, and in the characteristic, I see Joe [Rodon] behind Eric [Dier] in the central position.”
