Tottenham transfer sales that are needed
With Spurs and the transfer market this summer there are going to be deals that may be possible, think about Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg for players that will be in demand. Of course, Tottenham does not want to sell any of those three players but it is hard to say anyone is off-limits going into the summer as no one really knows what is going on at N17.
If things go well this summer, Kane, Son, and Højbjerg will be complemented by some new, fresh talent. If things do not go well, the Tottenham rebuild could be a whole lot bigger than any of us could imagine.
We know the Lilywhites are going to want to move Serge Aurier and Cameron Carter-Vickers. We believe the Spurs are likely ready to pull the plug on Harry Winks and Dele Alli. There may even be people in the organization who believe it is time to move on from Toby Alderweireld. The question with any of these players is twofold.
First, does anyone really want the players Tottenham does not? We have written here about how we do not want Manchester City’s spare parts, imagine how some other teams feel about taking the Lilywhite’s cast-aways. Second, is even if a team wants a Tottenham player, will the offer be sufficient enough for Spurs to go ahead and say make the deal.
That second question about getting enough compensation needs to be asked less often this summer as the team simply needs to clean house in many parts of the squad.
The other question is what about loans?
Tottenham has a number of good young players and the question is where will they get the most time to develop into good young contributors. If Tottenham had a manager, we would have a better sense of where players like Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon stood, not to mention the Harvey Whites or Troy Parrotts of the world.
All of those players were on loan last season and likely want to know if they need to keep their things packed or can get semi-comfortable in London.
Spurs needs to get leadership in quick or it will be too late and the damage done by a string of bad decisions could be far worse than ever imagined.
