Who will Tottenham Hotspur sign this summer? Every player they've been linked with ahead of the transfer window
Check out the transfer rumours of all the players who could move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ahead of next season
Who Tottenham Hotspur will sign in a transfer window now, more than ever, seems an extremely pertinent question as Daniel Levy's running of the club continues to be called into question.
Spurs fans invariably want the club to throw their weight around in the transfer market in order to entice bigger and better players to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in a bid to target trophies and glory once again. Whether that will happen, though, is a different story. Naturally, only time will tell with Tottenham and Daniel Levy.
A major squad overhaul is expected, with the club at a crossroads as so many players are deemed surplus to requirements, either by coaches at the club or fans.
But who will Tottenham Hotspur sign this summer? FourFourTwo runs through the transfer rumours doing the rounds.
Who will Tottenham Hotspur sign this summer?
With Hugo Lloris approaching the final 12 months of his contract and having endured a poor campaign, Spurs are in the market for a new goalkeeper. Surprisingly, they could turn their attention to former Arsenal stopped Wojciech Szczesny, according to CalciomercatoWeb.
The Juventus 'keeper is seen by Tottenham as the ideal fix to stop leaking so many goals, but, at 32, they recognise it won't be a long-term investment.
Goalkeepers currently in England have been linked with Spurs as well, though, with both David Raya from Brentford and Everton's Jordan Pickford touted to take over the No.1 jersey from Lloris.
Raya's contract with Brentford is due to expire in 2024, and the Spaniard has turned down multiple offers from the club regarding an extension. He has continuously insisted he is happy with the Bees, though.
If none of the three aforementioned goalkeepers are brought to the club by Daniel Levy, then he could be tempted into accepting a bonkers swap deal for Harry Kane with Manchester United.
ESPN are reporting that the 20-time Premier League champions may look to talk Tottenham's extraordinary fee for Kane down a little by offering Dean Henderson as part of the bargain.
Henderson is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest – but may well have burned bridges with his parent club after comments he made in August regarding United's choice to keep him as David De Gea's deputy last term.
According to the Irish Independent, Spurs are prepared to fight the likes of Brighton and Hove Albion and Brentford for Caoimhin Kelleher, who is valued at around £20 million.
Kelleher has been a solid backup behind Alisson at Liverpool but would ideally like to be playing first-team football to cement his place as the Republic of Ireland's first-choice between the sticks. Furthermore, the Reds have a golden opportunity with the 24-year-old that few others in the squad offer.
Spurs are reportedly closing in on their first signing of the summer transfer window, with on-loan Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet wanting to continue his stay in north London, according to Spanish outlet Sport.
The Frenchman arrived last summer from Barcelona on a year-long loan – and the report states that Levy has now approached the Catalan outfit to negotiate a permanent move.
Elsewhere, they're looking to make an ambitious move to sign Aymeric Laporte this summer, as per Football Transfers. The report suggests Spurs will look to prise the Spaniard away from Manchester City in the summer, with Laporte out-of-favour in Pep Guardiola's system at the Etihad Stadium.
Laporte is also keen on leaving Manchester City in the summer, too, but reports also suggest Barcelona are interested in bringing him to La Liga.
Croatian and Dinamo Zagreb defender Josip Sutalo is being monitored closely by Tottenham, report TuttoMercatoWeb. However, Spurs will face stiff competition from north London rivals Arsenal, who are also keen for some defensive reinforcements.
The 22-year-old is capable of operating at both centre-back and right-back, making him a versatile option who could grow under a new Spurs manager.
La Repubblica, via giallorossi.net, have claimed that Roma star Roger Ibanez has caught the attention of Tottenham for his stellar performances under former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho – and that a "concrete move" is imminent.
What's more, the defender could be available for as little as £26 million. Spurs are looking to add solidity to their defence this summer, with a left-sided centre-back high on the agenda,
Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister will seemingly be highly-sought after this summer, with Tottenham among the interested parties. According to 90Min, Spurs are keen on adding creativity to their midfield, and have identified the 24-year-old as the perfect player to bring some much-needed attacking impetus to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The same outlet also suggests that Tottenham are willing to battle it out for the signature of PSV’s Ibrahim Sangare this summer, with the Dutch club reportedly ready to cash in on the midfielder. The Ivory Coast international was linked with a move to England last year but eventually extended his deal in Eindhoven to June 2027 instead.
But PSV will sanction a sale in the upcoming transfer window, according to 90Min, and they won’t be short of offers - Spurs among them. Sangare’s agents are already speaking to clubs in England about his availability.
Tottenham Hotspur could tie up a deal for James Maddison at a cut price this summer. Spurs have been tracking Maddison for a long time. Back in 2019, The Express claimed that they were quoted £60 million by Leicester City for the playmaker, in the search for a replacement for Christian Eriksen.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that the Lilywhites are back in for the England playmaker – who will tick into the final year of his contract next season.
“Tottenham are monitoring James Maddison for sure, also Newcastle have his name on their list since last August as he’s always been appreciated,” Romano told Caught Offside . “We have to understand who’s going to be the new Tottenham boss to see if they will bid for Maddison, as at the moment it’s on standby.”
Manuel Ugarte in defensive midfield, meanwhile, has been touted by Portuguese outlet O Jogo. The Sporting star has shone in Europe this term and with Tottenham's central areas looking depleted in the absence of Rodrigo Bentancur, a new DM could well be on the cards. Ugarte's release clause is around £55m.
Sport Bild in Germany are reporting that a "concrete bid" for Eintracht Frankfurt superstar Randal Kolo Muani has been made, with Spurs and Manchester United both keen on adding to their frontline this summer.
The Europa League champions have put a £88 million price tag on his head amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur, and are said to be willing to sell for the right offer.
According to Spanish outlet, Mundo Deportivo, Tottenham are keen on Mallorca attacker Kang-in Lee. This would be a move that could bolster the creativity in the side, taking some of the burden away from Kane. Kang-in Lee is rumoured to have a release clause of just £15m.
L’Equipe, meanwhile, have linked Lille star, Jonathan David, with a move to north London. The Canadian forward has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs over the years but would likely only move to Spurs as a replacement for Harry Kane. David is valued to be worth at least £40m by Lille.
Tottenham Hotspur are one of several clubs who have been alerted to the availability of Roma forward Paulo Dybala. According to 90min, a bargain release clause kicks in for Dybala this summer, in which the forward would be available for around €20 million for rival Serie A clubs. Excitingly for English sides, however, that fee is dramatically reduced for Premier League sides.
Dybala will reportedly be for sale for just £12m, should Tottenham wish to reignite their interest.
