Transfer News: Overhaul on the cards as Tottenham Hotspur plot six first-team departures this summer

According to the latest news from The Athletic (h/t The Mirror), Tottenham Hotspur could part ways with six first-team stars this summer.

Nuno Espirito Santo is keen to mould a squad in his image and could sanction the departure of a number of players, including some familiar names. Spurs have so far enjoyed a quiet summer. However, that is set to change now that international tournaments have come to a close.

With just under a month to go before the new Premier League season kicks off, preparations appear to be gathering pace. Bologna defender Takehiro Tomiyasu looks likely to be the first player to join the Santo revolution as a £15million move draws closer.

The Japanese ace is unlikely to be the lone new arrival at Tottenham this summer. While Fabio Paratici will be keen to start off with a bang, he will need to sell before he can buy. The enigmatic Serge Aurier and the inconsistent Davinson Sanchez are both in line to leave.

Veteran defender Toby Alderweireld is also seeking a new challenge and could be on the move. With a new centre-back and potentially a goalkeeper already on the agenda, a new-look backline could take the field next season.

Midfield powerhouse Moussa Sissoko is another player who could be moved on. A regular last season, the Frenchman will turn 32 next month. Perhaps it is for the best given the club’s long-term vision. He could be joined at the exit door by Harry Winks. The Englishman enjoyed a frustrating season that saw him fall down the pecking order.

A youthful squad!

Up front, the likes of both Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela could see their time at the Lane come to an end. Both players have had moments of magic that will live long in the memory. Unfortunately, it is fair to say that they never quite reached the levels expected of them at the club.

Skipper Hugo Lloris is also in the final year of his contract and will discuss his future at the club this summer. Spurs are seeking to build a youthful side and it remains to be seen if the 34-year-old is seen as a  part of the plans.

It is fair to say that this summer will be an interesting one. The club is keen to keep Harry Kane and that augurs well for us moving forward. Having missed out on the Champions League for two seasons in a row, it remains to be seen if we will assemble a squad capable of challenging for the top four.
