Tottenham boss Antonio Conte and transfer guru Fabio Paratici are targeting January signings.
The Italian coach wants to ensure his side can compete for the Premier League title and go deep in the Champions League.
With Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur forming an outstanding midfield duo for Conte, he is instead focusing on his defense.
Conte wants to sign a centre-back, per CMV, as he is not happy with his present options and their injury proneness.
Dutch defender Stefan de Vrij is emerging as Conte’s ideal target, per the source.
He wants to secure the Inter defender in January, as he is out of contract in the summer of 2023.
