Antonio Conte has agreed to join Tottenham as the club’s new manager on an 18-month contract with only minor details left to be resolved, according to reports. The Italian boss is understood to be in talks with Spurs over a deal to succeed Nuno Espirito Santo, who was relieved of his duties on Monday morning.

The latter was sacked after just four months in charge of Tottenham following Saturday’s defeat at the hands of Manchester United.

Spurs bolted into action to tempt Conte, who walked away from Inter Milan at the end of last season after leading them to the Serie A title, into taking over in north London.

The 52-year-old was approached over the summer before Nuno’s arrival, but was unable to reach an agreement with the club and has remained out of work in the months since.

However, it seems as though the wheels are finally in motion to see Conte join Spurs over the next few days.

A deal until the summer of 2023 has been all but rubber-stamped, with only a few details left to be ironed out until Conte’s appointment can be officially confirmed, according to Fabrizio Romano.

It is claimed that the former Inter boss is currently in London to thrash out the remaining clauses, but has already settled on the vast majority of the deal.

He is reportedly ‘waiting’ to sign the contract that would see him confirmed as Nuno’s permanent replacement ahead of Tottenham’s next match against Vitesse on Thursday.
