Tottenham could accept offers for some players to free up funds this summer, according to Football.london. Jose Mourinho’s team have improved on the club’s difficult last season, but he will require a continued reshaping of his squad. The huge loss of income over the past year due to the pandemic means that Tottenham must sell players to free up space and raise the required funds.
Dele Alli was linked with a move away from the club, but his move to PSG did not materialise. He is not going to be a key man under the Portuguese. Tottenham will weigh up any big offers that come in during the summer and perhaps be tempted by a lucrative loan deal for a player with a contract until 2024.
Harry Winks has been unhappy with his game time at Tottenham this season and the return of Oliver Skipp in the summer will bring another homegrown player into the ranks and allow another to leave. Valencia have been interested in the midfielder.
Danny Rose will be out of contract. After 14 years at the club, he has spent the last year not playing any senior competitive football.
One centre-back could be on his way out of the club too. Davinson Sanchez has had a mixed season so far. A big offer might be considered but it would have to be a hefty one for a player. Joe Rodon is a project for the future and the only way the 23-year-old could leave would perhaps be a loan deal. Eric Dier is one of Mourinho’s ‘men’ in the head coach’s own words and only signed a new deal last summer until 2024. He and 32-year-old Toby Alderweireld are both in the same situation in signing new contracts after Mourinho’s arrival but neither are irreplaceable.
Serge Aurier is entering the final year of his contract at Tottenham and has never hidden his desire to return to France.
Moussa Sissoko, meanwhile, lies in a situation somewhere between Winks and Aurier. His contract is up in just over a year.
Erik Lamela has missed more matches in the past five seasons than any other Tottenham player. A bid for the Argentine could be tempting for the club.
Juan Foyth could be out of Tottenham’s hands as they’ve already agreed on an option with Villarreal to take the young Argentine permanently for around £13m on top of the loan fee already paid for him. Foyth could yet decline the move and the La Liga club might decide not to take up the option. At a tough financial time in the market, £13m for the young Argentina international is a bargain. Foyth’s compatriot Paulo Gazzaniga, also out on loan in Spain at Elche, could also leave the club if a suitable offer comes in.
Cameron Carter-Vickers has overcome a tough start to his loan at Bournemouth to become a guaranteed starter under Jonathan Woodgate. The USA international is expected to leave in the summer.
According to football.london, Spurs have turned down big money advances for Lucas Moura in the past and while he is another who is a useful squad player, the lack of consistency in his end product could make another attractive offer this summer very tempting to help the club bring in a key starter.
