Serial winner Antonio Conte has agreed to become the new manager in the white half of North London.

Having reportedly turned down the job in the summer, Conte has put pen to paper on an 18-month deal.

The 52-year-old Italian has been highly sought after since leaving Inter Milan at the end of last season, just after winning Serie A.

Conte is experienced in England, winning the Premier League with London rivals Chelsea in his two-year stint with the blues.

He was beaten in the FA Cup final by Arsenal chasing the league and cup double in 2018.

Wherever Conte has gone, he has been given the green light to bring players into the club that he needs.

Funds will be important, but will he be given them by chairman Daniel Levy, is another story.

Conte follows in the famous footsteps of Jose Mourinho to have won the league with Chelsea then swap to North London to manage Tottenham.
