Ledley King has told The Mail that Antonio Conte‘s transfer approach of bringing in players at Tottenham that are all around 6ft has excited him – stating it will striker fear into opponents when standing opposite them in the tunnel.

Tottenham are closing in on a seventh signing in the form of Destiny Udogie, who at 1.88cm (6ft 2in) is another example. Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic, Clement Lenglet, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Djed Spence are all 6ft at least.

Conte’s approach has been to rid themselves of some of their smaller players. Replacing them, Spurs have brought in big, muscular players that are still athletes. Bissouma is a prime example. He can run, but he is physical, too.

Left at home from the pre-season tour include Harry Winks, Gio Lo Celso and Sergio Reguilon. They are all well below 6ft. Conte’s approach is there for all to see and Tottenham legend King has explained why it should excite Spurs fans.

“When I look at the squad, one of the first things that strikes me is the size of them. It’s a very physical squad and that excites me. Being a somewhat physical defender back in my day, to see a team full of big, strong athletes is great.

“It definitely makes a difference when you’re standing in the tunnel before a game and look across and see a team of strong athletes who can run all day,” King told The Mail, in a story published on Monday evening.

Conte’s Tottenham approach has excited King

Since the arrival of Conte, Tottenham look like a team with a clear system. Everyone knows their role, the formation remains the same and it makes it easy to know your job. They look like a team that could win something this season.

The signings are excellent. Richarlison speaks for himself, as does Bissouma. Spence and Udogie are huge talents. Perisic and Forster bring Champions League experience. Lenglet is very underrated and excellent cover.

Conte is building a side capable of going toe to toe with Liverpool and Manchester City, proven by their opening-day result. Can they match City and Liverpool? They will certainly close the gap on the top two this season.
