Tottenham latest news: The “big” thing Daniel Levy has “promised” Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte on the touchline during his time at Inter Milan

Daily Star journalist Paul Brown has claimed that Antonio Conte has been promised plenty of money to try to turn Tottenham's fortunes around.

Conte was appointed as Tottenham's new manager on Tuesday, after the club opted to part ways with Nuno Espirito Santo the previous day.

What's the latest news at Tottenham?

It has been another whirlwind week at the north London club. It got off to the worst possible start when Spurs were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Manchester United, and that defeat proved to be one too many for Nuno, who was subsequently relieved of his duties.

It quickly emerged that Tottenham were targeting Conte as his replacement, despite the two parties failing to come to an agreement in the summer, when Spurs were looking for Jose Mourinho's permanent successor.

This time, Spurs did manage to get a deal across the line, though, as Conte signed an 18-month contract with the club.

What has Brown said about Conte?

Conte did not seem to be completely convinced by Tottenham when he spoke to them a few months ago, but that appears to have now changed.

The reason behind this may be that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has given his word that Conte will be given significant funds to spend in future transfer windows.

Speaking about what has been agreed between Conte and Levy, Brown told GIVEMESPORT: “He has been promised a fairly big whack, and a good go at things.”

How much money will Conte need to get Tottenham back on track?

It is hard to put an exact figure on how much Conte will require to help push Tottenham up the table, but the squad does look to be lacking quality at the moment.

Spurs do have some world-class talent to call upon such as Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, but they are short in other areas of the pitch, most notably in central defence and midfield.

Did Tottenham Hotspur sign Moussa Sissoko on transfer deadline day in 2016?

Bringing in 3-4 players to cover these positions won't be cheap, and that is probably what will be needed if Tottenham are to close the gap on the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Therefore, Spurs must be prepared to get their cheque book out and back Conte completely, otherwise their last couple of years of mediocrity could continue.
