If reports are to be believed, Daniel Levy could be set to loosen his purse strings in the summer as Spurs aim to add several new faces to the squad, ahead of their first full season at the new stadium.
It has been well publicised that Tottenham have had difficulties in meeting the homegrown player rule at the start of this season, which eventually led to Pochettino having to omit Juan Foyth from Tottenham’s squad for the Champions League group stages.
So with Spurs requiring to add at least a couple of homegrown players to the squad, here are 5 potential English talents that the club can move for in the summer transfer window.
5. Ryan Sessegnon
After a difficult start to the season, Fulham wide man Sessegnon has settled in well to life in the Premier League. The 18-year-old has featured regularly for the Cottagers and has been one of the few bright sparks in what has been an otherwise disappointing campaign for the club. With age on his side, the youngster might be a good option for Tottenham.
4. Ben Chilwell
The 22-year-old has been one of Leicester’s most consistent players in the last two seasons and has evolved into one of the League’s best full backs. With Danny Rose still facing issues with his fitness which prevent him from featuring in back to back games, Spurs might decide to let him go at the end of the season. Chilwell might be the perfect replacement for Rose but with Man City also reportedly interested in the England International (Daily Mail), he will not be easy to get.
3. Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Wan-Bissaka has shot to prominence with his performances for Crystal Palace this season. The 21-year-old has shown that he is up there with the best both while defending as well as when going forward. Right back is another problem area for Spurs with neither Trippier nor Aurier making the spot their own. If the club decides to move one of the two, Wan-Bissaka would be a brilliant replacement.
2. Harry Maguire
Maguire is having another solid season at Leicester City, and has now become one of the first names in Gareth Southgate’s England teamsheet. With Tottenham potentially losing Alderweireld in the summer, Maguire is one of the few defenders in the League who is capable of replacing the Belgian, as not only is he dominant at the back but he is also capable of playing the ball out from defence. However, given how well he has done in the last few seasons, Maguire will cost a fortune and is thus likely to be out of Tottenham’s price range.
1. James Maddison
Maddison is another Leicester player that Spurs have been linked with in recent weeks, with reports indicating that Tottenham see Maddison as the man to replace Eriksen if he leaves in the summer (The Times). Maddison is another player that has made the step up to the Premier League quite easily and has impressed with his ability on the ball. He is likely to improve as a player in the coming seasons as he gets more accustomed to the top flight football.
