Fabrizio Romano has claimed Tottenham will try to sell Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks and Sergio Reguilon before making any more signings this summer. 

Spurs have been active in refreshing Antonio Conte’s playing squad, bringing in six new players while allowing four to depart.

The arrival of Richarlison stands as the club’s biggest acquisition with the Brazilian completing a switch from Everton for a reported £60 million fee (The Guardian). 

Yves Bissouma and Djed Spence were signed from Brighton and Middlesbrough respectively, while Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Clement Lenglet were also brought in. 

The Evening Standard claim Spurs have now turned their attention towards selling players with as many as eight names potentially on the chopping block. 

And Romano has revealed any more incomings will have to wait until August with Spurs now specifically working towards offloading pre-season outcasts Ndombele, Lo Celso and Reguilon.

He told GiveMeSport: “For the other opportunities, we will have to wait until August because now the priority is for Tottenham to sell players.

“Ndombele is one of them, Lo Celso is another, Reguilón is in a situation which needs to be clarified and Harry Winks could leave as well.

“They will try to sell as many players as possible, of course only players that are not in the project of Antonio Conte, and then decide on potential additions.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Tottenham have done well to get the vast majority of their transfer business done early, so it was inevitable that they would take a break from signing players. 

The named players don’t seem to be part of Conte’s immediate plans so Spurs will need to try and recover some cash by finding some suitors that are interested in taking them on.
