It is going to be another big summer at Tottenham Hotspur, with a new manager at the helm and a major rebuild still needed.

This article is going to look at the current Spurs squad and assess just how much Tottenham could look to make if they were for sale.

This squad is taken from transfermarkt and as such the values given will be made based on those and with today’s transfer market rates in mind.

Goalkeepers

Hugo Lloris (Age: 34) GK – Spurs and France captain Hugo Lloris was back to his best last year, showing once again how important he is to the Tottenham side, at the back end of his career Lloris would still be worth a good amount to the right buyer. Valuation: £15-£25 million.

Joe Hart (34) GK – Another goalkeeper at the end of their career, Joe Hart used to be worth his weight in gold in his prime. The former England number 1 featured mostly in the Europa League last season and even against relatively easier opponents Hart still looked questionable when called upon. Valuation £3-£5 million.

Alfie Whiteman (22) GK – Young, but very unproven. The young shot-stopper has been a whispered name around Tottenham for many seasons now, but still yet to get any real chance to impress, the likelihood would be a loan move like other young goalie Brandon Austin. However, with Whiteman’s English nationality he would prove useful for the home-grown rules in England which would likely bump his value up. Valuation £5-£10 million.  

Defenders

Davinson Sanchez (25) CB – After recent success with Vertonghen and Alderweireld from Ajax, when Sanchez came in it felt like it was going to be another good purchase from the Dutch outfit. Sadly, things haven’t quite gone to plan for the Colombian international. Consistency has always been an issue for the central defender and with Spurs needing funds and a defensive rebuild Davidson could be one of the players heading for an exit this summer. Valuation £15-£25 million.

Eric Dier (27) CB/CDM – A player often criticised both wrongly and rightly, when Mourinho came in everyone expected him to become the main man for Tottenham. In a way, he did, but perhaps for all the wrong reasons. A tough season for the Englishman, who felt like he was often caught ball watching and blaming others for Tottenham’s laughable defensive errors. However, with years left in his career on top of being English and versatile enough to play at centre-half and in defensive midfield, Dier could still bring in a good chunk of change if sold. Valuation £20-£30 million.

Toby Alderweireld (32) CB – One of the best defenders Tottenham has had in recent years, his partnership with Vertonghen will be remembered fondly. Much like his fellow countryman, Alderweireld is heading towards the end of his career and as such is losing that edge he once had. Likely to follow as Vertonghen did and head somewhere outside the top 5 nations, with his age Alderweireld is unlikely to be worth a huge amount but still has enough of a reputation to pick up a fair price. Valuation £7.5-£12.5 million.

Joe Rodon (23) CB – After an impressive debut season and an equally impressive Euro campaign with Wales, many Spurs fans are calling for the defence to be built around Rodon. Tall, fast, and seemingly always committed to putting his body on the line the young Welshman seems to be in line for a big role next season in defence for Tottenham. Recent rumours have seen Brighton target Rodon and with age on his side coupled with his already obvious defensive qualities Spurs would be looking to make a profit on the 11 million they spent on him last summer. Valuation £20-£30 million.

Japhet Tanganga (22) CB/RB – A tough injury-ridden season for Tanganga, after breaking into the side and receiving incredible praise from former boss Mourinho, it’s been a hard task for the young defender to get back into the side consistently. However, another English player to fill homegrown rules means his price has a slightly higher valuation due to the inflated market. Valuation £10-£15 million.

Cameron Carter-Vickers (23) CB – After an impressive loan spell at Bournemouth, Carter-Vickers is another one who is very likely to leave this summer. Early rumours indicate Scottish giants Celtic are interested in the defender (daily record). The American could still attract offers from newly promoted clubs Norwich, Watford or Brentford or top Championship clubs after his season on loan. Valuation £5-£10 million.

Sergio Reguilón (24) LB/LWB – It was a real Jekyll and Hyde debut season for the full-back, during the first half of the season Tottenham appeared to have got their hands on a gem, full of energy down that left-hand side, exceptionally quick and brilliant end product saw instant rumours that Real Madrid were going to activate the buy-back clause for the Spaniard. After a muscle injury that saw him miss most of February, Reguilón never recovered his form with errors slipping into his game and even seeming to lose a yard of pace. Still young and hopefully able to recover his form, the full-back would still be worth a solid amount where anyone to register interest. Valuation £20-£30 million.

Ryan Sessegnon (21) LWB/LM/LW – Plenty of hype surrounded Sessegnon when Spurs paid just over £24 million for the young wide-man, with little chance to impress he found himself on loan at Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga this season. It was a successful spell that saw him get plenty of opportunities to play and showcase what he’s all about. Young, English and with Levy’s notorious ruthlessness when it comes to business, it’s hard to imagine Tottenham not wanting to make a profit on the £24 million they spent. Valuation £25-£35 million.

Ben Davies (28) LB/CB/LWB – Tottenham’s Mr Reliable, not the most glamourous footballer by any means, but excusing the odd mistake here and there (let’s face it the odd mistake is good for a Tottenham defender these days) Davies is someone who provides that 6 or 7 out of 10 every week. Can slip into a back 3 as a centre-half as he’s often done for Wales, Davies would be a solid buy for most. Valuation £15-£20 million.

Serge Aurier (28) RB/RWB – Hard to know where to start with Serge Aurier, everyone is often critical of the full-back and usually rightly so. There were times last season where Aurier actually impressed and at one point seemed to have turned the corner. However, he still puts fear in fans whenever he’s defending in the Tottenham box and often the worst fear comes true. It would by no means be a cheap fee for such an unreliable player due to his pedigree. Valuation £15-£20 million.

Matt Doherty (29) RB/RWB – It was a tough first season for Doherty, who was brought in for £15 million from Wolves. At the time Spurs fans seemed generally happy with this acquisition, full-back seemingly always a problem for Spurs, Doherty from the outside seemed to be exactly what was needed. Things never transpired for the Irishman who often underwhelmed and didn’t seem to have the same output he did at Wolves. With former boss Nuno now at Tottenham Doherty will be looking to bounce back and get back to his best. Valuation £15-£20 million.

Midfielders

Harry Winks (25) CM – Once running the show against the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona it seemed Harry Winks was destined to be a great for his boyhood club. However, things have declined for the midfielder, performances have dropped, with Winks seemingly losing his confidence in playing a forward pass to break lines and often instead looks to move it sideways or backwards. The English factor has to be considered, and with links to a move to Manchester United being rumoured and still only 25, Levy could certainly look to make a good amount. Valuation £20-£30 million.

Oliver Skipp (20) CM/CDM – A brilliant year on loan at Championship winners Norwich this season has seen Skipp been thrown into the Spurs limelight, in many fans eyes the perfect understudy to Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg and with the Europa Conference League for Spurs this year, it could be a great chance for the youngster to get some minutes in at a senior level for Spurs. Young, English and dubbed Tottenham’s future captain by Mourinho. Valuation £10-£20 million.

Tanguy Ndombélé (24) CM/CAM – On his day Tanguy Ndombélé is unplayable, arguably Tottenham’s most gifted technical player, someone who excites and gets fans off their seats (Covid-19 permitting of course). It still feels like the best is yet to come for Tanguy and with such a huge fee (£52 million) spent on the Frenchman, it’s hard to see Levy taking much less for him if they were to sell him. Valuation £45-£55 million.

Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg (25) CDM/CM – One of the signings of last season. Brought in by Tottenham for just £15 million, Höjbjerg exceeded every fans expectation. Full of fight and grit, a real leader on the pitch, a man that celebrates making a tackle and gives 100% every minute, every game. With an impressive Euro’s this summer too Höjbjerg will have seen his stock rise enormously after such a season. Valuation £30-£40 million.

Giovani Lo Celso (25) CM/CAM – Such a curious player for Tottenham, in and out of the squad with injuries throughout his time means it feels like he’s never had a chance to really show his best in a Spurs shirt, at one point under Mourinho we saw a glimpse of him at his best, full of ability on the ball, it was his work rate without it that impressed so much. Currently, in the final of the Copa America with Argentina, Gio is having a solid summer himself too. Valuation £20-£30 million.

Moussa Sissoko (31) CM – Moussa Sissoko hasn’t had the easiest ride since making his way to Tottenham, a huge fee of £30 million spent on him with many fans disappointed with his arrival from Newcastle. The first season was just that for the Frenchman, who really disappointed. Credit where it’s due he became an integral part of Tottenham’s famous Champions League run, Sissoko has certainly served a purpose. With age not on his side anymore it’s hard to see any significant money coming in for him. Valuation £10-£15 million.

Dele Alli (25) CAM – Once the hottest young property in England, now not in many Spurs fans starting 11, where did it go so wrong for Dele? Hit the ground running under Mourinho, back to his goalscoring ways and causing defenders countless problems, that soon dwindled for the attacking-midfielder who found himself out of form and often out of the team. Valuation £25-£35 million.

Heung-min Son (28) LW/ST – A world-class player. Not something Tottenham have enough of, Son is a fan favourite and a difference-maker, a goal-scoring wide-man not afraid to take people on, capable on either side with pace to burn and has one of the best link-ups the Premier League has seen with Harry Kane. One of a few players who could bring in serious money if Tottenham did look to sell. Valuation £75-£95 million.

Steven Bergwijn (23) LW/RW – After a debut to remember it’s been hard going for young Steven Bergwijn, struggling for minutes and consistency in his game the Dutch winger has shown glimpses of promise but often been underwhelming. There’s still a player in there and hopefully, he gets his chance soon to show that, a similar mould to Son with an eye for goal, frightening pace and the ability to take people on. Valuation £20-£30 million.

Lucas Moura (28) LW/RW – A manager’s dream: hard-working, will give everything for the team, and always smiling. Lucas has had a memorable time at Tottenham but perhaps has lived off that memory. Another winger who can take someone on and score a goal, but it feels like that production doesn’t come consistently enough from the Brazilian. Valuation £20-£25 million.

Erik Lamela (29) RW – Where to begin with Erik Lamela? Perhaps the most fitting game to sum up Lamela was Arsenal this year, a magical rabona goal and a red card all in the same game. Capable of the extraordinary with perhaps too much bite to his game. Injuries have always been a problem for him and as such has meant it’s never quite worked out for him. At 29 now it seems unlikely a decent fee would be acquired for him. Valuation £10-£15 million.

Jack Clarke (20) RW – Plenty of minutes under his belt last year on loan at Stoke, Jack was spoken highly of by Leeds fans upon his move to Tottenham, perhaps with the Conference League Spurs fans will get a chance to see more of the young winger this season. Valuation £5-£10 million.

Forward

Harry Kane (27) ST – Mr Tottenham, adored by all, Premier League top scorer and top assister last season. A role model and under absolutely zero circumstances should be sold. The fee would need to be astronomical and it still wouldn’t be enough. Tottenham simply can not replace Harry Kane. Valuation £150-£200 million.
