Transfer news: Man Utd swap deal, De Jong agent activity, Chelsea could sign nine – Express

Only one of Tottenham’s six summer signings could be a regular under Antonio Conte this season, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher claims. 

Spurs have strengthened Conte’s squad ahead of their first Champions League campaign in three years. 

Fraser Forster, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence, Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Richarlison have all been signed. 

But Carragher thinks that Bissouma is the only one of them who will play regularly for the North Londoners. 

“Conte can at least go into this weekend’s match knowing that his squad is in a better place now that it was in January, following the arrivals of Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic, Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence,” Carragher wrote in his Daily Telegraph column. 

“But I am still unsure as to how much these signings have really improved the starting lineup. Bissouma is a quality midfielder, and I expect him to be a regular starter, but aside from him we might be looking at the same starting team that we saw in the second half of last season.”
