Five Spurs stars who should benefit from Conte’s arrival including Kane

With Antonio Conte expected to be announced as the new Tottenham manager, an exciting new era is set to get underway in north London.

Despite having had top managers like Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho at the helm, Spurs are still waiting for their first trophy since 2008.

And Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici will be hoping Conte, who will bring a decorated CV, a new formation and very high demands, can change that statistic.

Under the new regime there will be some Tottenham players who should emerge from the uninspired reign of Nuno Espirito Santo into the forefront of Conte's pack. Daily Star Sport are looking at five of them…

Harry Winks

Harry Winks has been extremely unhappy at his lack of action under Nuno this season.

The midfielder has watched Oliver Skipp, a player four years younger than him, return from a loan at Norwich and come into the team instead.

A fresh start is exactly what the 25-year-old needs and his name will be in the hat to fill the single defensive midfield position Conte used at Inter Milan.

Pierre Hojbjerg will be a shoe-in for one of the potential three central spots but the others are up for grabs.

Joe Rodon

Can Conte lead Tottenham to an elusive piece of silverware? Let us know in the comments section…

Joe Rodon was signed in 2020 as a promising young centre-back and has since cemented himself as one of the first names on the team sheet for Wales.

This season should in theory be his big Premier League breakout – but there was no chance of that happening under Nuno.

He's made just one league appearance so far this campaign, which should soon change when Conte takes the reins.

The Italian loves using three centre-backs and Rodon has to be a top contender for one of those spots.

Harry Kane

Tottenham's star man Harry Kane has looked a shell of his former self with his Manchester City transfer saga still seemingly on his mind.

However, working under a truly world-class manager will surely get him back to the top of his game.

Conte has a track record, after all. In his last two roles at Chelsea and Inter he's got Diego Costa and Romelu Lukaku firing on all cylinders respectively.

And the Italian is a big fan of England striker Kane, previously saying: “If I have to bring a striker, I will go with all my strength to Kane, I consider him one of the best in the world."

Matt Doherty

Like Winks, Matt Doherty had fallen by the wayside under Nuno, despite previously being managed by the Portuguese at Wolves.

A new opportunity is now on the horizon for the 29-year-old because he has proven he can fill Conte's right wing-back role excellently in the past.

In contrast, current right-back Emerson Royal, 22, has far less experience of having to cover the whole of the flank by himself.

If Conte wants a safe pair of hands, then Doherty is his man.

Tanguy Ndombele

It's been a very bumpy ride for Tanguy Ndombele since his £54m north London arrival in 2019.

After a summer of uncertainty his stock was on the rise under Nuno, so this is more about Conte's arrival than his former boss' departure.

The soon to be Spurs manager showed interest in signing Ndombele when in charge at the San Siro.

Therefore, if the Frenchman continues with his positive start to the season, he could be a shining light in Conte's new-look Tottenham team.
