Prior to their journey to South Korea to begin their preseason matches, the majority of the Tottenham team has had around a week of preseason training. Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, and Richarlison, recent newcomers, have all travelled with their new side, but Clement Lenglet has not since he has the required paperwork for the journey.
When it comes to signing new players, Tottenham has had a fruitful summer thus far. This is important for Antonio Conte as he works to assemble the best team possible for the 2022–23 season.
This also pertains to transfers, individuals the Italian does not view as fitting into his plans, and players who could wish to leave for more consistent playing time, particularly with the impending World Cup.
Only two Tottenham players—Cameron Carter-Vickers and Steven Bergwijn—have had their careers end to date, with the former moving permanently to Celtic following a fruitful loan period. Bergwijn has now made his way back to Ajax.
Several Lilywhites did not go to South Korea with the team. Lenglet did not travel, Joe Rodon missed out due to sickness, as was already reported, while Dane Scarlett and Alfie Devine had an extended vacation following the Euro U19 Championship.

The Break Down: For Few Players
Additionally abandoned without explanation were Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon, and Tanguy Ndombele.
This seems to suggest that the foursome could not be in his plans for the upcoming season, but this cannot be said with confidence.
All four have been connected to departures. Ndombele and Lo Celso have returned from their brief loan periods, but being in north London is unlikely to make it any easier for them to play regularly before their time away.
With Perisic’s arrival, Reguilon’s competition for a starting position has been more challenging. His failure to consistently contribute during the previous season won’t have helped his cause for remaining in N17. Although there has been less speculation about Winks moving to Everton, Tottenham’s potent midfield will only push him further down the pecking order.
According to reports published on Sunday, despite one of them being on the preseason trip, Conte may see three Spurs players leave N17. According to Marca, Kia Joorabchianm, Lo Celso’s agent, is searching for prospective new teams for the Argentine.
According to the report, Villarreal will have trouble affording the Tottenham player unless they make a significant sell. As a result, if the Lilywhites decide to sell Lo Celso, they could have to settle for less than the £30 million they paid for him.

The New Prospect Players
Left-back for Sevilla This summer, Ludwig Augustinsson appears to be the next player to join Aston Villa. If this is the case, it may open the door for Reguilon to return to his own country and the club where he spent the 2019–2020 season on loan, according to sources.
The only player that could be on the verge of being released is Japhet Tanganga, who is currently on preseason tour. Due to the fact that the defender missed much of the season due to injury, Conte will probably evaluate the defence during the friendlies before making a definitive decision on his future.
Tottenham are unlikely to encounter interest issues if the 23-year-old decides to leave N17. While there have been rumours of AC Milan’s interest for some time, Bournemouth has apparently officially joined the fray.
If Tanganga is planning to leave the country permanently, the child can benefit from moving overseas for a new start. Going to a Premier League team, though, could be the best choice if it’s a loan transfer.
At a team like Bournemouth, the defender is not only more likely to obtain the consistent playing time he needs and craves, but it also means that he is still competing in the top division, allowing him to maintain his level of play before his return. A loan move could be what is best for Tanganga, just like it was for Oliver Skipp.
According to Tuttosport, the 23-year-old is desired by Spurs for between £8.4 million and £10.1 million, and an Italian team has expressed interest.
As Tottenham looks to be ready for a successful season, a lot of its players, as well as Conte and the team, must make some significant decisions.
