As Sportsmail reported earlier this month, Spurs are keen to open negotiations with the Italian over a longer contract that would include a rise on his current £13million salary.
Conte – whose current deal runs out at the end of the season but includes an option for the club to extend it by a year – helped guide Spurs back into the top four last year after taking charge in November.
Tottenham have reportedly entered talks with Antonio Conte over a new long-term contract
The club are confident that they can convince the Italian to commit his long-term future
And, despite a shaky run of form in recent weeks, the club are looking to reward their Italian coach with a new long-term deal in north London.
According to The Athletic, Spurs have opened talks with their Italian coach and remain confident that a deal will be agreed.
Under the Italian’s guidance, Tottenham have reinstated themselves in the Champions League and have also enjoyed a solid start to this year’s campaign.
However, fans have voiced their frustrations in recent weeks at the team’s defensive style of play.
They sit third in the Premier League – just three points behind Manchester City – and are close to booking their spot in the Champions League round of 16, ensuring they get a result away at Marseille on Tuesday.
The Italian has never managed a club for longer than three years but could do so with Spurs
Spurs’ confidence in agreeing a deal is admirable considering the Italian’s reputation for only completing short-term tenures in his career.
He’s never managed a club for longer than three years – which would be the case if he signs a new deal with Spurs.
The Italian’s longest tenure at a side came between 2011-2014 when he was in charge of his former playing side Juventus before eventually walking away from the role.
There had been suggestions that the Italian was potentially interested in a return to the Old Lady, with Massimiliano Allegri’s side underperforming this year.

His impact on Spurs has been evident and he’s helped transform them back into one of England’s top performing teams.
They maintained their push for another top-four finish after scoring a dramatic 90th minute winner against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Conte’s side found themselves 2-0 down to the newly promoted side before the Italian made a host of changes to spark a frenetic comeback at the Vitality Stadium.
They next travel to Marseille on Tuesday needing a result against the French outfit to confirm their place in the next round of the Champions League.
