Conte on transfers: World Cup break offers chance to assess
Speaking before the start of the World Cup, Antonio Conte said the break would allow Tottenham to conduct a mid-season evaluation which could influence the club’s January transfer policy.
At least 11 of Conte’s players featured during the tournament in Qatar and the Italian welcomed the opportunity to sit down with Tottenham’s hierarchy to discuss his performance so far this season and the areas where his squad can be strengthened.
“For sure, after the first part of the season, it’s right to have a meeting with the club to discuss the positives and negatives and ways to improve. Then we will see what we can do,” he said.
