Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has made an assessment of some players regarding the upcoming winter transfer window. It can be a cold time for some.

Tottenham Hotspur will play the 21st round of the 2021-22 EPL season with Watford at Vicarage Road in Watford, England at 12:00 pm (Korean time) on January 1st. Tottenham are currently in 7th place with 30 points (9 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses).

Tottenham, which fell to the mid-range due to sluggishness at the beginning of the season, has not lost 7 games (4 wins, 3 draws) since Conte took over as manager last month and is drawing a steep upward curve.

Conte is the first manager in Tottenham’s history to finish seven league matches undefeated right after taking office.

Coach Conte is making moves to cut some of his current squad and bring in new players for better performance. There are a few players who are not playing well in the first team, and Tanggui Ndombele is such a case.

Conte was asked about the winter transfer window at an official press conference held the day before his match against Watford.

Regarding goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, whose contract expires after the 2021-22 season, coach Conte said, “Lloris is our player and captain. He also loves Tottenham, so he wants to stay. We have to find the answer through conversation.” .

He also praised midfielder Harry Winks. “Winks has proven himself to be a player he can trust. He will remain at Tottenham,” Conte said.

However, when he was asked about Ndombele, he took a different attitude.

“I pay the same attention to all players when I design the squad,” he said. “It will become clearer if I and the club talk together. But at the moment it is not right to talk about the transfer.” He avoided an immediate answer.

Ndombele is a player brought from Olympique Lyonne (France) in the summer of 2019 by Tottenham Hotspur for £55 million (about 86 billion won), the club’s highest transfer fee.

However, following Jose Mourinho and Noonu Espirito Santo, he has not been able to take off as a regular under the Conte managerial system.
