Tottenham are preparing for a big summer when the transfer window opens as they look continue their fine work from this season.
Manager Antonio Conte guided Spurs to fourth spot in the Premier League and secured Champions League football in the process, giving them a real opportunity to kick on and establish themselves as a permanent fixture in Europe’s top competition.
With news of a £150million influx of cash for both on and off-field investment, fans are getting excited about the prospect of a blockbuster summer in the transfer market.
It’s been suggested that Tottenham could bring in as many as six new signings in order to bolster their squad this summer, including two new wing-backs, a centre-back, a midfielder and a forward to provide competition for Harry Kane.
Speculation has continued around Kane’s future, and according to talkSPORT host Darren Ambrose, he’d be tempted to cash in if Daniel Levy was to add a potential £150million from the potential sale to the huge budget already in place.
He told talkSPORT Drive: “If he’s guaranteed the full £150million I’d be very tempted to sell Harry Kane.
“If that full £150million would be added to the current transfer budget that they’re going to have.
“He’s difficult to replace, we know that. Not impossible, difficult, but Antonio Conte and Fabio Paritici have an eye for a player with the two that they brought in in January.”
A move away from north London seems unlikely for Kane this summer, meaning the focus for Spurs will no doubt be on other areas of the pitch.
Between the sticks, it’s been suggested that Tottenham are already closing in on a deal to sign Fraser Forster.
The experienced goalkeeper would likely come in as an understudy to Hugo Lloris, meaning the Franc captain’s spot in the side would be unlikely to be under threat.
In defence, Gleison Bremer has emerged as a top target at centre-back with the Torino star winning the Serie A defender of the year award.
As a left-sided centre-back, he’d undoubtedly fill a vital role in the team.
On the flanks, Spurs continue to be linked with £20million-rated Djed Spence from Middlesbrough, while also pursuing a deal for Eintracht Frankfurt wing-back Filip Kostic is also a target on the left side.
Rodrigo Bentancur has already showed his quality since arriving from Juventus in January, and could be joined by Christian Eriksen in the middle of the park.
The Danish star is out of contract this summer and despite suggestions he could stay at Brentford, Spurs are said to be keen on a reunion with their former playmaker.
In attacking areas, players such as Gabriel Jesus have been linked with a move to the club, however with Kane, Heung-min Son and Dejan Kulusevski in fine form in recent weeks, Conte will no doubt prioritise keeping his new-look attacking line in place ahead of a big season for the club.
This is how Tottenham could line up next term.
