Antonio Conte has revealed he intends to discuss transfer targets with the club soon.

The Tottenham manager has previously admitted the level of the squad was “not so high” and that restoring Spurs to the level they were at during the glory days of the Mauricio Pochettino era is his “biggest challenge” yet.

Conte, who joined the north London club at the beginning of last month, insists he never spoke about January prior to his arrival and has wanted to evaluate the players he has had.

The recent outbreak of Covid-19 has delayed discussions with managing director of football Fabio Paratici, but Conte says they will take place soon.

"In this moment we’re not thinking about the transfer window," he said. "We’ve had many, many problems to face and try to solve.

"It was very difficult to speak about other topics. For sure, in the next days we’ll try to have a meeting to speak about the situation and see if there’s a way to improve the squad and in which way.

"In this moment, I’m making an evaluation about the whole squad.

"Covid will be a good opportunity for someone to show me they deserve to continue to play for Tottenham."
