Tottenham are preparing for a huge summer ahead of them. Antonio Conte is preparing to shape his squad in his image in the upcoming transfer window to get them competing at the very top again.
The Italian has already confirmed his first transfer, securing Ivan Perisic on a free transfer from Inter Milan. The Croatian, a winger by trade, looks set to play at wing-back in a system that could suit his ability on the flank.
The deals don’t look set to stop there, though, as the club announced £150million of investment that can go towards the playing squad, offering Conte the backing he has so often discussed. With several high-profile players linked with a move to North London, football.london takes a look at the latest rumours.

Clement Lenglet deal
Tottenham are close to agreeing on a two-year loan deal for Barcelona centre-back Clement Lenglet, according to Spanish outlet CCMA. The 26-year-old rarely featured for the Blaugrana last season, with the club looking to offload him in the summer.
The Frenchman can play any of the back three centre-back roles, but his stronger left foot allows him to potentially compete for a position with Ben Davies.
Adama Traore interest
Tottenham have revived their interest in Adama Traore ahead of the summer, according to the Daily Express, via Sport. The winger was linked with a move to Spurs in January but instead made the loan switch to Barcelona.
The La Liga club are increasingly unlikely to make the loan from Wolves permanent. Antonio Conte has been linked with the winger during his Chelsea career and it looks like giving the Lilywhites a chance to land their man once and for all.
