What did Jones say about Nuno’s vision for next season?
Last year, under the leadership of José Mourinho, the Spurs often settled in 4-2-3-1. However, Jones revealed that Nuno wanted to change the squad system and instead play with Harry Kane and Danny Ings in the next term.
Jones told The Football Terrace: ” They have [Tottenham] tells Nuno that he can plan his life with Kane. Nuno wants to try playing a front two next season, so he actually has a vision of Danny Ings playing in front of Harry Kane.
“It could even be that they sign another striker as well, but that wouldn’t be to replace Harry Kane, it would just be another save option for Son and Kane and Ings or whoever else comes in, as they’re quite short. this area if you want to try one before two.

What’s the latest on Danny Ings’ Tottenham chase?
Of course, Tottenham must sign Ings before Nuno has a chance to put this plan into action. The Southampton man recently rejected a contract extension at St Mary’s, and it has been reported that Spurs have made him their main transfer target this summer.
However, Ings is believed to be waiting to move to one of the Manchester clubs rather than moving to north London, which is a potentially big blow to Nuno’s vision for how he wants his team to fare. form in 2021/22.
What are the chances of Kane staying at Spurs?
Another issue Nuno faces is that Kane could leave Tottenham in the coming weeks. The 27-year-old has told the club he wants to leave in May.
Spurs are adamant they want to keep him, but it has been reported that some of Kane’s English teammates believe he could take some drastic action in the coming weeks by skipping Tottenham training in order to force a move to Manchester City.
With that in mind, it looks like this transfer saga could rumble for a while, without it being clear at this time whether Kane will still be a Tottenham player at the end of the transfer window.
Is it any surprise that Nuno wants to play a front two?
It might come as a surprise given how Nuno tended to settle down alongside him in Wolves. During his time at Molineux, the 47-year-old often used a system with a lone striker such as Raul Jimenez, meaning he had a focal point for his attack. Switching things up when he could have Kane at his disposal might surprise some fans.
However, he has also looked to the top two on several occasions in the past, and if Tottenham can land Ings, it would make perfect sense for Nuno to play two strikers together.
Kane and Ings have scored 75 league goals between them over the past two seasons, and if the two are at Tottenham early in the season, they could form a tantalizing partnership.
