Following the 52-year-old's appointment as Spurs manager, the north London club have been linked with a host of names from the Italian league.

Who exactly have Tottenham been linked with?

Looking at the Premier League table, Tottenham face a battle against so many teams to finish in the top four and secure Champions League qualification.

Considering that, Conte will want to strengthen this Spurs side to give them every chance of making a return to Europe's elite competition.

Who should be Antonio Conte's No.1 target?

There are a lot of good players in Serie A, but the man of the moment there right now is arguably Vlahovic.

Still just 21 years of age, the Serbia international really impressed last season, scoring 21 goals in 37 league appearances.

That form has carried over into this campaign, with Vlahovic having already hit double digits for goals.

In contrast, Kane has failed to reach his usual high standards this term and has managed to register just once in the Premier League. The England captain is also Spurs' only senior striker, so it is fair to say that the north London club are pretty light in that department.

Furthermore, perhaps a No.9 like Vlahovic should be a priority for Conte and Paratici as they prepare to dip into the transfer market.

Signing him will not be easy, though, with a whole host of other clubs, including Arsenal, also said to be interested.
