This is the latest Tottenham news with Fabio Paratici set to make a demand for 6 players to leave the club as he agree £309M for Conte summer spending spree.
Tottenham have had a busy few weeks since the season finished, and the transfer market hasn’t even opened yet.
Spurs confirmed their first summer signing on Tuesday, with Ivan Perisic joining on a free two-year deal, while Fraser Forster’s move appears to be nearing completion.
Christian Eriksen, Filip Kostic, and Alessandro Bastoni have all been linked with a transfer to N17, with Antonio Conte looking to bring in at least six new players this summer.
This will not only assist strengthen the Italian team currently in place, but it will also address the issue of squad depth, which will become even more crucial next season with the introduction of the five-substitution rule.
In the last year or two, the futures of a number of Spurs players have been called into question. Some of this is due to a lack of playing time under Conte, while others who have been on loan may be able to join the club permanently this summer.
With all the discussion about incomings, Sportearly.com looks at the six outgoings who may depart this summer and how much Tottenham could make if they were sold.

Conte has turned Spurs’ defense around from a club that was allowing several goals every week to one that was able to deal with most of what was thrown at them. Although the back three played a major role, the wing-backs are as important in the Italian setup.
Sergio Reguilon and Emerson Royal both had to adjust from their full-back positions to the wing-back roles that the 52-year-old demanded. The couple put on a variety of performances during the season, but were unable to maintain consistency.
With Matt Doherty’s injury leaving him out for the last run of games, the Brazilian had an easier time. Reguilon came up against Ryan Sessegnon, who has also battled ailments, although it was the Spaniard who missed the final five games of the previous season.
When the summer transfer market opens, Real Madrid will have the final chance to re-sign Reguilon for a cost of roughly £43 million.
After the arrival of Ivan Perisic, neither player will want to stay on the bench next season, which is likely to be the case for Reguilon.
Before his injury, Doherty was on his way to being the primary right wing-back, and if another right wing-back is brought in, Royal is likely to fall further down the pecking order, forcing both players to hunt for other clubs where regular football is assured.
£60 million for Reguilon and Royal funds
Harry Winks is another player who, even without any new signings, is expected to struggle for playing time next season. Last season, the 26-year-old made just 19 Premier League appearances, starting only nine of them.
When given the chance, Winks has not only failed to impress, but he has also struggled to gain consistent playing time due to a tussle in central midfield.
Rodrigo Bentancur has formed a solid relationship with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the midfield since his arrival in January, leaving little place for the Englishman.
Oliver Skipp missed the second part of the season due to injury, but when he returns, Winks will have to battle with another player, and that’s without any potential new signings in central midfield.
As a result, and for the benefit of his own career, the academy graduate may be better off looking for regular playing time and regaining his confidence at another club.
Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso have both been on loan since January, with the former playing for Lyon in France and the latter for Villarreal in Spain. Lo Celso made 16 La Liga games for Unai Emery, scoring a goal and adding an assist, while also making 11 Ligue 1 appearances.
The pair is due to return to N17 this summer, but will it be for a long time? Under Conte, neither player impressed and struggled to assimilate into his system and produce regularly.
As a result, with the Italian having had seven months to work on strengthening his squad and fresh signings now helping to further build it, there may no longer be a space for either of the loanees to just slip back in, and the midfield trio’s Tottenham chapter may be coming to an end.
£73 million for Winks, Lo Celso, and Ndombele funds
With the acquisition of Dejan Kulusevski in January, Spurs’ front three was strengthened. In just 18 Premier League games, the Swede stepped directly into Conte’s starting lineup and had an immediate impact, scoring five goals and collecting eight assists.
The offensive three assisted the Lilywhites in their top four race by assisting one another. As a result, players like Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn were forced to sit out a number of games.
Conte’s first option of substitute was typically the Brazilian, with Bergwijn appearing to be further down on the 52-year-priority old’s list. When given the chance, though, the Dutch international has proven his worth, as seen by his injury-time brace that earned Tottenham three points against Leciester in January.
The Italian stated earlier this month that he felt terrible for Bergwijn. “It’s a little tough for me to put him on the bench because Steven is perhaps the guy who deserves more, but we have to strive to preserve a fair balance,” Conte stated following his side’s 3-1 triumph against The Foxes in his post-match news conference.
“He’s a tremendous striker, but there’s Harry and then Sonny in this position.” Deki provides us with both quality and quantity, which can be tough at times.
“I’m sure I’m giving [Steven] less than he deserves,” he said, “and I want to be honest.”
This might signal that the 24-year-old isn’t putting in the necessary effort to gain a starting berth, and that other players are ahead of him. Someone like Bergwijn, who has proven his worth on several times, is likely to want and think he deserves to play regular games.
There has already been interest from teams all around the world, so if the attacker wants to play week in and week out, a move may be the best option.
£26 million for Bergwijn funding
Tottenham could gain £159 million from these six outgoings. ENIC announced a £150 million commitment only last week, bringing Spurs’ total investment to more over £300 million.
This provides Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte a big boost in their quest for new signings to bolster the Spurs team. However, the futures of a handful more current Tottenham players are also in doubt.
Japhet Tanganga is another Lilywhites player who had an injury-plagued season and didn’t receive many chances to impress his new coach.
According to media, the club will make a decision on the 23-year-future old’s in the summer after a pre-season under Conte.
Last season, Joe Rodon and Davinson Sanchez, particularly the former, struggled with consistent game time. When one of the back three was injured, the Colombian was frequently called upon, and he had a nice enough effect in the final few games, given the cristian Romero absence.
This shown that Sanchez is someone Conte can rely on, and the Italian feels the 25-year-old can be a top defender if he can improve his attention for 90 minutes during games. Rodon, on the other hand, has had a difficult time at Tottenham.
The Welsh international has excelled for his country on several occasions, but has been denied opportunities under the Italian. Rodon’s age, 24, makes this an ideal moment for him to be growing as a defender and playing regular games.
This isn’t what he’ll receive at Tottenham, and if additional defenders are brought in this summer, he’ll fall even farther behind.
Rodon may just seek a loan transfer to aid his growth before returning to the main XI, but he may possibly decide it’s better for his future to go on permanently.
Funds for Rodon, Tanganga and Sanchez total £48 million
Spurs may earn up to £207 million if all nine players leave this summer, giving them plenty of cash to spend on new signings. Only time will tell how many of these players finish their Tottenham careers, and how much the club can receive for them if they do go.
