Tottenham Hotspur face Leeds United on Saturday in their final game before the Premier League’s World Cup break. 

The Lilywhites will be hoping to move back above Newcastle United into third place in the table, but they will be relying on rivals Chelsea to beat The Magpies if they are going to do so.

After a strong start to the campaign, Spurs’ form has dipped lately, and they will be hoping to get back to their best when the Premier League returns in December.

With that in mind, Spurs are reportedly already planning ahead to the upcoming January transfer window.

According to 90min, Tottenham will prioritise trying to sign a right wing-back and a backup forward to provide cover for Harry Kane.

The report claims that Djed Spence, who joined Spurs from Middlesbrough over the summer, will be loaned out in January.

One of Matt Doherty or Emerson Royal will also likely be sold, the report claims, and Conte will then look for a replacement in an attempt to solve something of a problem area.

Conte wants to add a forward to his squad

One player that they could look to sign is Kyle Walker-Peters, who left Spurs to join Southampton in 2020.

Norwich City’s Max Aarons is another potential target, the report claims, but they could still look elsewhere.

It is also claimed that Wolves’ Adama Traore could be considered, with the Spaniard’s contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Conte is also keen to add reinforcements up front, with Richarlison, Dejan Kulusevski and Son Heung-Min having all suffered injuries already this term.

The Italian also claimed that he substituted Kane last time out as the England captain was ‘very tired’.

Bayern Munich’s Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting is believed to be one possible target, while Spurs are also said to be one of the clubs interested in Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz.

Spurs will also be watching the World Cup closely, particularly the performances of Memphis Depay, as the forward is expected to leave Barcelona by next summer and could even be allowed to depart in January.
