Lazio full-back Manuel Lazzari is one of the players on coach Antonio Conte’s wish list at Tottenham.
As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the former Inter coach has officially started his new adventure in the Premier League and already has in mind a variety of players that he would like to be signed in the upcoming January Transfer Window.
The 27-year-old Italian is more comfortable playing as a wing-back in a 3-5-2 system, perfect for Conte, who is borderline wedded to the formation.
Lazzari has been working hard this campaign to adapt to Sarri’s systems and has made some great strides in this, but it is clear that he truly shines playing as a wing-back rather than a traditional full-back.
Conte has joined Tottenham until the summer of 2023, with an option to extend. He was convinced of the project by the Managing Director of Football at Spurs, Fabio Paratici, and is now set to rejuvenate the North London side.
The other players that the Italian manager is interested in signing include Juventus‘ Federico Chiesa and Matthijs de Ligt, in addition to Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, AC Milan central midfielder Franck Kessie, and Inter‘s Stefan de Vrij and Marcelo Brozovic.
