Antonio Conte must be quite pleased with the way his side’s pre-season has gone so far. After adding a host of top quality players during the summer, Chelsea went on to beat everyone in their pre-season matches, including a 3-0 demolition of rivals Arsenal.
But Conte is still not done, as he feels that he needs to add a few more players to his squad, if they are to challenge on all fronts this season. The addition of Alvaro Morata was seen as an excellent replacement for the out going Diego Costa, although we have now learned that Morata was not Conte’s first choice.
Antonio Conte has now joined the long list of suitors for Tottenham’s talisman, Harry Kane. The English striker has slowly developed into one of the finest strikers in Europe, something that has not gone unnoticed by the biggest clubs on the continent.
This is what Conte had to say about Kane and his Tottenham side,
“Tottenham is a really good squad if they are able to keep all the players.”
“For me, Kane, now, is one of the best strikers in the world.”

“If I had to buy one striker I would go to Kane. He is a complete striker.”
“He is strong physically, with the ball, without the ball, he fights and he’s strong in the air and acrobatic on the right and the left.”
“He’s a complete player. He’s one of the top strikers in the world. If you go to buy Kane now it would be at least £100m.”
“At least. For me, if I see this price for a striker I know for sure he’s a big striker.”
High praise indeed for the English striker!
