Report: Spurs could melt for Inter Milan star if they land Conte – Spurs Web
While some reports reported that Tottenham essentially struck a deal with Conte, others suggest that the former Chelsea boss is still considering the proposal and will make his final decision in the coming days.
If Tottenham name the 51-year-old, La Gazzetta dello Sport have suggested the north London club could pursue Hakimi, who was one of Inter’s most consistent performers in the Scudetto’s winning campaign under Conte.
The winger has reportedly made a verbal deal with Paris Saint-Germain and the Ligue 1 giants would therefore clearly be the first for his signing.
However, the report reveals that Tottenham and Chelsea are also monitoring the 22-year-old’s situation and could challenge PSG.

If Conte arrives, I would expect us to bring two wingers on each side, depending on whether the Italian thinks Sessegnon might be ready.
Hakimi would certainly be a natural fit for the right-back position, but it will be interesting to see how Doherty performs in Conte’s system.
Despite the bad season he had last time around, the former Wolves man has many of the characteristics the 51-year-old looks for in his wingers.
