As we finally move into the summer 2024 transfer window, there are a number of areas that need to be addressed by manager Ange Postecoglou, his staff, and Spurs' brass.

These spots of concern include changing up the midfield rotation, finding another attacker (or two), and shoring up the defensive depth. Last year was an excellent first season under the Aussie gaffer, but now is the time to make that next step.

What could be in store for Tottenham during the window? Let's break it down in this week's Hotspur Roundup.

Spence to stay at Genoa?

Signed two summers ago from Championship side Middlesbrough, Djed Spence was supposed to be a long-term option at one of the full-back positions. However, in two seasons at Spurs, he's only made four first-team appearances. Even after Postecoglou took the reins last summer, it seemed like Spence didn't seem long for the Lilywhites

Well, top transfer expert Fabrizio Romano says Spence's latest loan might turn into a permanent move for the English national defender. Genoa, whom Spence played in a total of 16 appearances for during the second half of last season, is working with Spurs to make Spence's move a long-term one. It will be up to the decision-makers at Tottenham if they decide to move on from Spence, and if so, what the right price will be. Truth Meter: 8/10.
