How Tottenham could line up under Maurizio Sarri with ex-Chelsea boss raiding former club for Pulisic and Jorginho | The Sun

TOTTENHAM could have a very different look to their starting line-up should they appoint Maurizio Sarri as Antonio Conte's replacement.

Conte is set to leave the club at the end of the season as his contract expires.




He has become frustrated at the North London side, while the club do not appreciate his frequent jibes.

However, Spurs are believed to have already identified Sarri as his replacement.

The former Chelsea boss is currently at Serie A side Lazio, who sit fourth in the table following Juventus' points deduction.

Should the Italian get the job, then he could move for a reunion with former players Jorginho and Christian Pulisic.

The duo are believed to be on the way out of the club this summer.

Jorginho's contract is set to expire, while Chelsea will try to cash in on the American winger as he does not feature in Graham Potter's plans.

This could pave a way for moves to the North of London.

Sarri has typically used a 4-3-3 system, which would accommodate the duo quite easily.

Jorginho could line up in the midfield trio alongside Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur.

While Pulisic would be able to take up a position on either flank of the attack.

Another potential that Sarri could have to deal with is the exit of star striker Harry Kane.

The England international has been linked with a move to Manchester United.

If Kane was to leave, then Sarri could deploy a false nine system and build his attack around Pulisic, and Dejan Kulusevski, with Son Heung-min playing centrally.

Jorginho could then line-up with Bentancur in the middle of the park, with Emerson Royal and Ryan Sessegnon playing as wing-backs.
