Antonio Conte will reportedly be given a £150m transfer war chest to turn things around at Tottenham.
Conte is on the verge of becoming the new Spurs manager after the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo.
As MailOnline exclusively revealed on Monday morning, Nuno was axed as Spurs head coach, the club confirming the Portuguese’s departure news just before 10am.
The club’s increasingly influential director of football Fabio Paratici has moved quickly to identify Nuno’s replacement with a deal in principle agreed for former Chelsea boss Conte.
It is understood Conte, who has a long-term relationship with Paratici, has been offered an 18 month contract with a pro-rata salary of around £13million, taking his overall earnings across the initial contract to close to £20m.
And he will be backed heavily in the transfer market, according to The Sun.
Tottenham did not make any big signings in the summer but did manage to keep hold if Harry Kane.
Their season has not gone to plan at all and they currently sit ninth after five defeats in their first 10 games.
