Conte's dream Spurs attack can be given final boost by Paratici's transfer call

Richarlison signs, Bergwijn is sold, and Paratici makes the ultimate decision in terms of transfers: Conte's ideal Tottenham offence .

After the club's transfer business, Antonio Conte will have some attack on his hands at Tottenham the following season. Premier League defenders will be dreading playing Tottenham the following season with Antonio Conte boasting a fearsome attack. Over the past six years, Harry Kane and Son Heung-remarkable min's relationship has frequently made headlines, but Dejan Kulusevski has given Spurs another lethal weapon in their frontline.

The Swede, who was acquired from Juventus at the close of the January transfer window, made an immediate impact, with five goals and eight assists in 20 appearances. The trio went on to form one of the Premier League's most lethal combinations as the 22-year-old almost immediately forged a connection with Kane and Son.

In such a short period of time, Tottenham has advanced significantly under Conte, and they will be feeling good by the time Southampton visits for their season-opening match. Already strengthened by the addition of three new players, more are anticipated to join in the upcoming weeks, and Tottenham's ideal attack may now appear different than it did at the close of the last campaign.

What will Tottenham's attack specifically look like in 2022–2023? looks into it. Conte seems to be in for a selection issue with Richarlison seemingly on the verge of joining from Everton. According to, there is rising optimism at Spurs that the Brazilian would sign with them, and negotiations between the two teams are reportedly going well. The 25-year-old, who had a productive season with 11 goals and five assists, can play everywhere in the front line and has extensive Premier League experience after initially joining Watford in 2017. Richarlison will probably have to settle for a spot on the bench of substitutes at first, but he'll be determined to force his way into the group and become one of the he holds the three positions.

Although Steven Bergwijn will continue to have competition in attack from Lucas Moura, his stay in the city does seem to be coming to an end. The Dutchman has made it obvious that he wants to go out of the country in order to play first-team football regularly, and a move back to his native country may be in the works with Ajax the favourites to sign him.

Anthony Gordon of Everton, who has been contacted by Spurs about the England U21 star, could be a potential addition on the wing. According to, the youngster would be keen on the move to play Champions League football under Conte but would not ask to leave his hometown club.

Fabio Paratici will have to make a final choice on whether or not Spurs sign another pure striker to cover for Kane now that Richarlison is expected to replace Bergwijn in the lineup, assuming of course that both trades go through. Richarlison has frequently led the line for Everton in the past, but with the number of games remaining and the likelihood of injuries during the season, Spurs cannot afford to leave themselves too short in attack.

Son, Kane, and Kulusevski are currently Conte's first-choice starting in his assault. However, if Richarlison can recover his form and contribute with goals and assists over the course of the first few months, things might drastically change.

Tottenham has historically made changes in Europe, but depending on how difficult their group is in Europe's top competition, their return could mean that they make changes in the Premier League. Conte may have little choice but to use the Premier League as the optimum time to rotate rather than always sticking with his preferred offence in the league given that he won't enter the Carabao Cup until November and that the FA Cup third round will start as usual in January.

Whatever happens, the Italian is likely to have a variety of tantalising possibilities.
