Following the announcement of Nuno Espirito Santo being appointed as Tottenham Hotspur’s new manager, attentions have now turned to what system he will use and the signings he could look to make, and Spurs legend Graham Roberts would go all out to sign Wolves defender Conor Coady.
When Nuno was appointed as Wolves manager back in 2017 he moved Coady from the centre of midfield into the middle of a back three and has never looked back, even earning himself several England caps and call-ups.
Therefore, reports have suggested that Nuno will look to link up once again with the defender who served him so well during his time at Molineux making 158 appearances in the league under the new Spurs manager.

It would be a signing that made sense as Nuno and Coady clearly work well together and Spurs are in need of a leader at the back, someone who will organise the defence and hold people accountable, and that’s why Roberts would pay up to £45 million for the defender, as he spoke exclusively to Football FanCast:
“If he costs you £45 million then you go and buy him because that’s what he costs. You’re not going to get players like Conor Coady for £11 million.
“He’s a good talker and that’s what we don’t have in the team, we don’t have any talkers and he’s also a leader.”
Coady was signed during Wolves’ time spent in the Championship so he has been with the fans during their whole experience of rising from the second tier all the way to qualifying for the Europa League.
