Antonio Conte reveals the signing he wants to maximise Harry Kane


Antonio Conte has hinted that he hopes Tottenham can sign a new playmaker to allow Harry Kane to focus on his duties as a striker.

Once known as a pure goal-poacher, Kane has blossomed into one of the finest creative strikers in recent memory, racking up plenty of assists while still managing to maintain his impressive output in front of goal.

Former Spurs man David Ginola recently compared Kane to the iconic Diego Maradona. Those comments were put to Conte, and not only did the boss remember playing against the Argentine, but he revealed how he would like a new number 10 in his squad as well.

“I tell you one thing that is very curious. When I was playing with Lecce and [Zbigniew] Boniek was the manager, my role was No.4, to mark man to man the No.10. I was lucky, or maybe not lucky, to mark Maradona when Napoli played Lecce,” he said.

“We lost 3-2 but I scored! My first goal in Serie A. When I was only 19 years old! It was the last season for Diego in Naples but for sure this game is impressed in my mind because I marked him and I scored. I was very happy, despite the defeat.
