Eye contact for Verona man Antonin Barak
Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is said to be looking at Hellas Verona midfielder Antonin Barak, with Juventus being another interesting side. The 27-year-old has enjoyed an impressive season in Italy’s top scoring and his performances have captured the attention of some of Europe’s biggest players.
Managing 11 goals and four assists so far this season, the Czech international is valued at up to £ 17million by the CIES football observatory, with Italian publisher Mondo Udinese reporting the Conte’s interest in the player.
Under contracts until June of 2024, Verona’s hierarchy may be willing to fund it in the middle at the appropriate time this summer.
Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen have all been nominated for the Premier League’s Player of the Season award.
The three London stars are among the eight selected, including Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne and Joao Cancelo. There was also the audience for Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse.
Son is currently chasing the Golden Boot and a top -four finish with Spurs this season, as Conte’s side return to European club competition.
Sky Sports legend Gary Neville gave praise to Spurs forward Harry Kane’s approach, saying he was the closest to Premier League legend Alan Shearer.
Kane scored twice in the Lilywhites’ 3-0 win over Arsenal on Thursday evening, and the side are just one point behind the Gunners with just two games left.
