Conte is beating Chelsea in this transfer window: Tottenham ready to hijack another Blues target


Chelsea run the risk of missing out on one more player, who can be recruited by a principal rival. Tottenham Hotspur are considering signing Villarreal defender Pau Torres, according to Sky Sports. Antonio Conte’s team is having a very active transfer window and is putting together a very combative squad.

Recently the Spurs signed Clément Lenglet on loan, and are now studying the availability of a transfer for the Spanish defender. The 25-year-old Villarreal star has been on Manchester United’s list of transfer targets for a very long time. However, Pau Torres is not motivated to move to Old Trafford. The player wants to play for a club playing in the Champions League, while the Red Devils will play in the Europa League next season.

Chelsea were also interested in the Spanish defender. However, the recent change of ownership has somewhat reshuffled the club’s transfer plans. Thomas Tuchel’s team is interested in a large number of players, including defenders. There is the feeling that the new management of the club is negotiating with several transfer targets at the same time.

Tottenham in this case act more clearly and harmoniously. Antonio Conte already has a squad capable of making some serious noise in both the English Premier League and the Champions League. If the Spurs manage to sign Pau Torres, Tottenham could compete for the league title.
