4 Inter Milan and Chelsea players Antonio Conte could take with him to Tottenham

Antonio Conte is no stranger to life in London; the former Italian national team coach oversaw a Premier League triumph with Chelsea, in 2017, before being dismissed the season after for countryman Maurizio Sarri.

Since his short but sweet time at Stamford Bridge, Conte wrestled the scudetto out of Juventus' stranglehold with a superb campaign with Inter Milan.

However, he has since left Milan – by mutual consent – and has wooed Tottenham's Daniel Levy with his methods, and he could fill the vacant hot seat in North London.

And Daily Star Sport looks at four potential players he could take with him…

Eden Hazard

Hazard, arguably, played his best football under Conte in Chelsea's title-winning campaign; he bagged 16 goals and provided five assists in 36 Premier League appearances.

And, after a disappointing stint in Spain, the Belgian – reportedly – wants away from Real Madrid, who are happy to sell for the right price.

However, if Hazard would move to Chelsea's bitter rivals is another question.

Hazard also revealed to Sports Magazine he was unhappy with his role under Conte: "When you meet Italian coaches like I did, you are less happy."

Milan Skriniar

Skriniar has been on the end of an endless skew of transfer speculation over recent seasons.

With Manchester City also sniffing around, before they signed Ruben Dias, the Slovak is in high demand.

He has been linked with Tottenham in recent years, and as recently as January, Spurs were trying to secure his services – however, he said: “I always wanted to stay here. I’m happy to be performing more consistently.”

But, should Conte arrive in London, with a coach he knows and trusts, the door could be open for Skriniar to accept a new challenge.

Achraf Hakimi

Hakimi has emerged as a generational full back talent over the past two seasons: firstly, at Borussia Dortmund and then at Inter.

And when Conte revolutionised the Premier League with his 3-4-3, system during the 16/17 campaign, he was dependant on quick wing-backs who could balance attacking and defensive duties.

And after spending a season together in Italy, it seems a match made in heaven.

However, PSG are also interested, and he wouldn't come cheap with Inter wanting around £70million for his services.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

  • There was a time – not so long ago – that Loftus-Cheek was considered as England's next hope: a man to build the England midfield around.

    And, this lofty praise was warranted – under Conte – Loftus-Cheek shone for a brief period where he played as far forwards as alongside Diego Costa and as far back as a defensive midfielder.

    Loftus-Cheek has since seized to named amongst world football's wonder-kids, and he has had loan spells away from Chelsea to try and recover his potential.

    However, a reunion with the man that originally gave him his chance could change his fortunes.
