Conte is looking to strengthen all areas of the pitch and midfield appears to be the next position he is looking to tick off his summer wish list.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Brighton ace Bissouma is having a medical at Tottenham today ahead of a £25million move.

Spurs were able to sign the Mali international for relatively little as he was entering the final year of his contract.

Bissouma would have been able to negotiate a summer 2023 move away from the Amex at the start of next year.

Conte would also like to turn the loans of Cristian Romero and Dejan Kulusevski into permanent transfers.

Romero is still on the books of Atalanta, as is Kulusevski at Juventus.

Spurs are said to have set aside £68m to secure both players.

Everton’s Richarlison has also been linked with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Brazilian would provide good cover for Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.

However, Spurs icon Teddy Sheringham is keen to see the club sign top class players in other areas of the pitch.

Speaking to Lord Ping, the former England international said: “I don’t think he’s what is needed now.

“Tottenham have got good attacking players; Kane, Son, Kulusevski, Bergwijn is still there, Moura is still there.

“We’ve got players in the Richarlison mould and I don’t think he would be a statement signing that would get teams worried.

“If they were to sign him what would the result be? In my day, when we signed Klinsmann, a proper World Class player, everyone in the dressing room was buzzing.

“We knew what we were going to get from him. You need players that are going to take you to the next level and I don’t think Richarlison is one of them.

“I don’t think he’s the ideal man to make a statement for Tottenham. If you’re going to make a statement, and West Ham fans won’t like me for this, then go and get Declan Rice.

“He is an unbelievable player. And he’s good for the next eight years. He’s the man to take us to the next level.

“These big players don’t come around very often, but signing him would make a statement because he is immense every time he plays.

“He would make a statement to say we’re going places, and that’s what you want.”
