That said, doubts have emerged over the future of the Italian at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with the man himself understood to have one eye on the exit door.

Paris Saint-Germain are said to be interested in appointing Conte, so Tottenham have no choice but to prepare contingency plans in case he does choose to depart.

According to the Telegraph, Daniel Levy is likely to move for Brighton boss Graham Potter, were Conte to decide to walk out the door at the end of the season.

Potter has done a superb job with Brighton and thoroughly deserves the opportunity to manage a top-six club. Let’s see how things play out over the next month or so.
