Former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss, Antonio Conte, is set to become the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur following the sacking of Nuno Espírito Santo.
According to transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, Conte has already accepted Tottenham’s proposal to coach the club.
Romano disclosed this in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Monday morning.
He tweeted, “Antonio Conte is ready to accept Tottenham’s proposal. Talks underway and understood to be ‘at final stages’ – salary and long term contract discussed, but he seems convinced to say ‘yes’.
“Negotiations to continue in the next few hours in order to complete the agreement.”
Tottenham sacked Santo on Monday following their Premier League 3-0 loss to Manchester United over the weekend.
Tottenham lost to Man United at home on Saturday following goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford.
The defeat to Man United means Spurs are now in the 8th position on the Premier League table with 15 points from 10 games.
Tottenham’s next game is against Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League on Thursday
