Tottenham continue their search for a manager to replace Jose Mourinho. The latest in their coveted list is a familiar name in Antonio Conte.

Tottenham have reportedly begun talks with Antonio Conte over their vacant managerial position.

The Italian has done a fine job since taking charge of Inter Milan two years ago, securing the club their first Serie A title in 11 years at the weekend.

The Nerazzurri are 13 points clear at the top of the table after Saturday’s win at Crotone with four games to go, ending a run of nine Juventus triumphs.

Conte’s performance in Italy has naturally caught the eye of Spurs, who currently have Ryan Mason in charge on an interim basis following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport claims Tottenham have now moved to speak with him and he has refused to rule out the possibility of a move to north London.

However, he also also made it clear he is committed to Inter at this moment in time.

Conte will be no stranger to fans in the Premier League, having spent two seasons with Chelsea between 2016 and 2018.

He won a Premier League in his first season and an FA Cup in his second before being dismissed.
