Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino warned last season that the club might have to undergo a painful rebuild in the summer (Evening Standard), which seemed to suggest that there will be a lot of comings and goings at Tottenham.
However, apart from the early signings of Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke, no other transfer as materialised so far, while the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose are all still at the club.
Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent has now made a massive claim regarding the futures of Eriksen, Rose, and Alderweireld.
Bent said that, knowing Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy well, he is sure he will not let the trio leave this summer unless he can find replacements for them.
The 35-year-old, who spent two seasons at Spurs before moving to Sunderland in the summer of 2009, said that he expects the trio to at least stick around till January.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Spurs striker said, “Tottenham need to keep all their players. They can’t let Rose, Eriksen, and Alderweireld leave because they can’t replace them.
“Knowing Daniel Levy the way I do, he won’t allow that to happen. 100 per cent he won’t let them go. He will hold on to them and then assess it again in January.”

While Alderweireld looks like he is set to stay, the jury is still out on the futures of Rose and Eriksen. If Tottenham can get Giovani Lo Celso or Bruno Fernandes in before the end of the transfer window, then one certainly shouldn’t bet against the possibility of Eriksen leaving, particularly given that his contract only has a year to run.
