Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly prepared a list of winter reinforcements as they look to utilise a £150 million budget on a number of Serie A stars to bolster the squad.

according to Calciomercato, four players have been identified as potential targets, with additions set to be made across all areas of the pitch.

The most expensive on the list is Dusan Vlahovic, the Fiorentina star who has attracted interest from the likes of Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain in recent months. The 21-year-old striker scored a hat trick in his last game against Spezia, continuing form that has seen I Viola demand €80m for his services.

Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso recently admitted that his attempts to tie Vlahovic down to a new deal were unsuccessful, with the 21-year-old now expected to be in high demand next summer.

Tottenham are already budgeting for a swoop for the Serbia international, with Fiorentina not prepared to let him go on the cheap despite his contract situation.

The report adds that Spurs would have to table a bid in excess of €60m (£51m) to get their man, and Vlahovic continues to be linked with the likes of Manchester City and Juventus.

And with former Nerazzurri boss Antonio Conte set to take the Spurs helm as new manager, the Premier League club are also keen on Internazionale star Stefan de Vrij. According to a report by Football Insider, Antonio Conte is eager to reunite with Stefan de Vrij upon being confirmed as the new Tottenham Hotspur manager. The 29-year-old Inter Milan defender is being eyed over a potential move in the January transfer window.

The Dutchman who was instrumental in helping Conte win the Serie A title last season will be tempted by the prospect of working with the Italian once again and this could be a deciding factor in him swapping the San Siro for Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
