Tottenham

Levy faces £137m Spurs transfer decision as Postecoglou plots future blueprint.

Tottenham Hotspur have a number of players whose contracts will expire in the summer of 2024, which means that transfer decisions must be made in the following weeks.

When he walks through the door at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Tottenham’s new managing director of football will have a lot on his plate. Not only will he have to make significant changes to the playing team, with incomings and outgoings required as Tottenham looks to reclaim a spot in the top four, but he will also have to make critical contract decisions as the Lilywhites plan for the future.

The Spurs do not want to lose some of its great players for nothing when their contracts expire.Tottenham are in a perilous position right now, with star striker Harry Kane entering the final year of his contract.

 

That means the England captain, who is valued at £69 million by CIES Football Observatory, may leave on a free transfer this time next summer if a new contract cannot be agreed upon by then. Ange Postecoglou, Daniel Levy, and the club, on the other hand, will be hoping that this is not the case and that the striker can agree to new terms to stay in N17 for the foreseeable future.

 

But, aside from Kane, who Spurs players are nearing the end of their contracts? gamehuz examines the nine players on whom Tottenham must decide this summer.

Hugo Lloris

Transfer value: £9m (CIES Football Observatory)

Lloris appears set to depart Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer after 11 years with the club. Levy and the club must now decide whether to let him leave for free given his years of service or to levy a fee for the Frenchman, who has previously expressed a desire to pursue new opportunities.

Fraser Forster

Transfer value: £4m

Signed on a free transfer from Southampton 12 months ago, Forster turned out to be one of Tottenham’s best signings of the 2022/23 campaign. Given his transfer value is not so high due to his age and with others in the same boat worth a lot more, Spurs have a bit of time on their side before coming to a final decision over the England international.

It would certainly be wise to extend his stay for a bit longer as he has proved that he has plenty still to offer Tottenham when first-team chances arise.

Brandon Austin

Transfer value: £300k (Transfermarkt)

Sticking with the goalkeepers, Austin will be out of contract next summer after last signing a two-year deal in March 2022. Showing no sign of breaking into the first team with the likes of Lloris and Forster ahead of him in the pecking order, both parties have a big decision to make as the 24-year-old is at an age where he now needs to be playing regularly.

Davinson Sanchez

Transfer value: £17m

Tottenham’s defense is a top priority this summer, following a year of problems at the back. There will be incomings and outgoings, with Sanchez one of those expected to go for a new challenge abroad.

Valued at £17million, Tottenham will be looking to bring in as much money as possible for the Colombian if he’s given him the green light to exit. Given his value, Tottenham need to part with him quickly if they want to bring in as much money as possible for the ex-Ajax man.

Eric Dier

Transfer value: £17m

Dier is also in the same boat as Sanchez this summer due to his contract status. Valued at £17million just like his fellow defender, the England international is another player who could also bring in a decent amount of money for Tottenham if he’s not going to be offered a new contract.

Ivan Perisic

Transfer value: £13m

Perisic will soon enter the final 12 months of his Tottenham deal after signing on a two-year contract from Inter Milan last summer. The Croat is not one for the future given he turns 35 in February but he did make a big impact in terms of assists last season after notching 12 for the Lilywhites.

Tottenham would still be able to get a good price for Perisic if they were to cut his stay short by a year.Given that he will not be playing as a left-back under Postecoglou’s system and that he will have players ahead of him in the pecking order for offensive roles, Spurs may be better off selling him now.

Harry Winks

Transfer value: £4m

Winks will return to Hotspur Way very soon as Postecoglou’s club resumes pre-season training. After spending last season on loan with Italian club Sampdoria, it is unclear where the midfielder will play from August forward.

Valued at £4million, Tottenham will be hoping to bring in a bit more for the 27-year-old if he is to move on for good ahead of the transfer deadline.

Harvey White

Transfer value: £4m

White will also return to Hotspur Way soon after finishing the previous season in League One with Derby County. Behind a number of players in Tottenham’s midfield, it appears that the moment has come for both parties to part ways.

Despite his lack of minutes in a Tottenham shirt, White has done well when he has left on loan and that should help Tottenham add to the coffers in the process.

Harry Kane

Transfer value: £69m

Tottenham just cannot afford to lose their star player this summer. Real Madrid and Manchester United have both been connected with the England player, but speculation about a move to either club has calmed down in the last week or two.

Levy and Spurs need to do everything in their power to get him to sign a new deal.
