Tottenham Hotspur have released 13 players ahead of the summer transfer window 

According to Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the release of 13 players including first-team stars and youth level footballers ahead of the coming summer window. 

Tottenham are set to be pretty busy in the coming summer window as Antonio Conte is looking to strengthen his squad in an attempt to compete for the titles next season. Having received a £150m cash injection, the Italian manager would be looking to add a lot of depth in the coming window. 

However, in order to sign new players, Tottenham have to let some players go as well. The club was supposed to send a list to the Premier League confirming the names of the first team and academy players who will be retained ahead of the 2022/23 season. Now, they have confirmed the name of the players set to leave the club.

Tottenham’s backup goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini is expected to return to Atalanta after completing his loan spell. Apart from the Italian shot-stopper, Spurs have also confirmed that youth players J’Neil Bennett, Kacper Kurylowicz, Dermi Lusala, Thimothee Lo-Tutala, Josh Oluwayemi, Tobi Omole and Isak Solberg will leave the club due to expiry of their respective contracts.

From the U-18 squad, Jez Davies, Jordan Hackett, Khalon Haysman, Renaldo Torraj and Oliver Turner are expected to depart following the expiry of their contract with the North London club. 

Preparation for a busy summer? 

As Conte is looking to get what he wants in order to build a strong and dynamic team, Tottenham would be wise to beef up their transfer budget by way of player sales.

Not just that, but the departing players could also free up some space on the wage bill. While it may not be a lot, it is always wise to clear out the deadwood at the earliest possible convenience.

Spurs are believed to be seeking a new centre-back, a new central midfielder, wing-back and forward. If they go for quality reinforcement they would require significant space in their wage bill and it seems they have already started to clear up by releasing current players. 

However, releasing only out-of-contract players wouldn’t be enough. Spurs would be wise to sell players that aren’t really central to Conte’s plans. Tanguy Ndombele, Joe Rodon, and Japhet Tanganga haven’t been involved in first-team action to a great extent under the Italian.

It remains to be seen what transfer approach the board takes. Only Champions League football might not be enough to keep the Italian manager at the club, hence the board should do everything in order to provide him with a quality squad for next season.
