It’s already been a busy couple of weeks at Tottenham since the season ended and the transfer window isn’t even open. On Tuesday, the Spurs announced his first signing of the summer, with Ivan Perisic making the trade on a two-year free deal and Fraser Forster’s move doesn’t look too far from confirmation.
The likes of Christian Eriksen, Filip Kostic and Alessandro Bastoni have also been linked with a move to N17, with Antonio Conte wanting at least six newcomers this summer. Not only will this help improve the squad strength the Italian already has, but it will also solve the issue of squad depth, which will become more important with the introduction of the five substitution rule next season.
The futures of several Spurs players have come into question in the last year or so. Part of this is due to a lack of playing time with Conte, while others who have been on loan may move permanently this summer.
With all the talk about tickets, football.london take a look at the six outgoing players who could leave this summer and how much Tottenham can make from selling them.
I counted he has transformed the Spurs defense from a team that concedes multiple goals every week, to a strong defensive line that dealt with much of what was thrown at them. Although this was largely due to the trio behind, the full-backs are also a key part of the Italian’s set-up.
Both Sergio Reguilón and royal emerson he had to adapt from his full-back position, to the full-back role that was required under the 52-year-old. The duo produced a mixed bag of performances but failed to create consistency throughout the season.
Arguably the Brazilian had an easier ride, with Matt Doherty injury discarding it for the final stretch of the matches. Reguilon was competing with Ryan Sessegnon, who has also struggled with injuries, but it was the Spaniard who missed the last five games last season.
Real Madrid has its Last option to sign Reguilón again, when the summer transfer window opens, for a fee believed to be around £43m. Neither of them will want to sit on the bench next season, as Reguilón will probably be, after the signing of Iván Perisic.
Doherty was becoming the main right-back before his injury and if another right-back is brought to N17, it is likely that Royal will move down the pecking order and both will look for a new club, where regular football is guaranteed.
Reguilón and real funds = 60 million pounds sterling
Another who is likely to fight even harder for playing time next season, even without newcomers, is harry winks. The 26-year-old made just 19 Premier League starts last season, starting in just nine of those games.
Winks hasn’t impressed enough when given the opportunity, but has also struggled to get regular playing time with a battle in central midfield. Since the arrival of Rodrigo Bentancur in January, the Uruguayan has built a strong bond with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in midfield, leaving no room for the Englishman.
Oliver Skipp missed the second half of the season due to injuryBut when he returns, he’ll be someone else Winks will be competing with, and that’s without any potential newcomers who could come in as options in midfield. Therefore, and for the sake of his own career, it may be better for the academy graduate to seek regular playing time and regain his confidence at another club.
Both Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso have been on loan since January, with the former playing in France with Lyon and the Argentine spending time at Villarreal. Lo Celso played 16 La Liga games with Unai Emery, scoring one goal and registering one assist, while the 25-year-old featured 11 times in Ligue 1.
The duo will return to N17 this summer, but the question is, will it be for long? Neither player was impressing under Conte and they were struggling to fit into his system and perform consistently.
So, with the Italian having seven months to work and strengthen his squad and now newcomers helping to develop it further, there may already be no room for any of the loan-outs to return and could see the midfield trio shut down. his Tottenham. chapter.
Winks, Lo Celso and Ndombele Funds = £73m
The three Spurs forwards received more strength, with the arrival of Dejan Kulusevsky in January. The Swede was placed straight into Conte’s regular XI and made an immediate impact, scoring five goals and registering eight assists in just 18 Premier League appearances.
The attacking trio worked to help each other out and helped the Lilywhites on their run into the top four. This meant that the likes of Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn had to watch from the bench in several matches.
The Brazilian was often Conte’s first choice of replacement, with Bergwijn seemingly further down the 52-year-old’s pecking order. However, the Dutch international has shown his quality when the opportunity has presented itself, most notably his stoppage-time brace that secured Tottenham three points. against Leciester in January.
Earlier this month, the Italian admitted he felt sorry for Bergwijn. “For me, it’s a bit difficult to keep him on the bench because Steven is perhaps the player who should deserve more, but we always have to try to have a good balance,” Conte said in his post-match press conferenceafter his team’s 3-1 victory against Los Zorros.
“He’s a striker, a fantastic striker, but in this position there’s Harry and then Sonny. Deki gives us quality and quantity, and sometimes it is very difficult.
“Sure maybe I’m giving [Steven] less than he deserves, and I want to be honest,” he added.
This perhaps indicates that the 24-year-old is not doing enough to earn a starting spot and there are players ahead of him. for someone like Bergwijnwho has proven his quality on several occasions, it is very likely that he wants and perhaps believes that he deserves to be playing normal football.
there has already been interest from clubs around the world and if the attacker wants to play week after week, then maybe a move is best.
Bergwijn funds = £26m
Those six expenses could raise as much as £159m for Tottenham. Last week, ENIC made a investment of 150 million pounds sterlingwhich would be a potential total of over £300m for Spurs to spend.
This gives a great boost to fabio paratici and Conte, in his search for news, to reinforce the Spurs squad. However, there are some other current Tottenham players whose future is also in doubt.
Japhet Tanganga is another Lilywhites player whose season was riddled with wounds and so he didn’t have much chance to impress his new boss. football.london reported on Monday that the club will decide on the 23-year-old’s future in the summer, after a pre-season with Conte.
Joe Rodon and Davinson Sanchez also struggled with regular playing time last season, especially the former. The Colombian was often given the nod if one of the back three was injured and he made a pretty decent impact in recent games, given the absence of Cristian Romero.
This showed that Sánchez is someone Conte can trust and the Italian believes that if the 25-year-old can improve his concentration for 90 minutes during matches, he could be a great defender. Rodón, on the other hand, has had it tough at Spurs.
The Welsh international has performed well on multiple occasions for his country but has not had the chances with the Italian. Given his age, only 24 years old, it would be a great moment for rodon developing as a defender and playing football regularly.
This is not what he is getting at Tottenham and if more defenders are brought to N17 this summer he will fall further down the pecking order. Rodon may just want a loan move to help his development, before he returns and can slot into the regular XI, but he may also decide it’s better for his own career to move on permanently.
Funds from Rodon, Tanganga and Sanchez = £48m
If all nine players moved this summer, Spurs they could earn up to £207m, which would give them a huge boost of money to spend on income. However, only time will tell how many of these players close their chapter at Tottenham and, if they do leave, how much the club can get for them.
