Opinion: Our dream summer transfer window for Spurs – 6 Signings and 7 sales

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

It’s painfully clear that Tottenham Hotspur need another re-build in the summer transfer window. To get to the next level, certain players have to leave and certain players have to come in.

So, why not follow me to create the dream scenario of Tottenham’s transfer window that, realistically, will never happen?

Sounds like a great idea.


Sven Botman (£20M)

Talented young centre-half who could be available for a cut-price due to Ligue 1’s falling finances.

Nikola Milenkovic (£35M)

The 23-year-old centre-back from Fiorentina is powerful, aggressive and the leader that Spurs need.

Ryan Gravenbach (£30m)

Excellent young midfielder that can play as a six, eight, or ten and could fix Mourinho’s issue of playing through the centre of the park. Should take the hit on the 18-year-old before every big club is circling around him.

Mikel Oyarzabal (35M)

The 23-year-old star from Real Sociedad could be the extra goal source Spurs need away from Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min.

Matvey Safonov (10M)

The sad reality is Hugo Lloris might need a long-term replacement – and the 21-year-old goalkeeper from Krasandor already has Champions League experience mixed with all the ability to make it to the very top.

Patson Daka – (15M)

Carlos Vinicius is looking unlikely as a full-time signing, so Daka could be a cheaper, younger and better alternative from RB Salzburg. 


Paulo Gazzaniga (£4M)

He is too good to be a third-choice keeper.

Davinson Sanchez (£15M)

He isn’t good enough and should leave to allow better defenders to come in.

Cameron Carter-Vickers (1.5M)

The defender has had more than enough time to embed himself into the first team but hasn’t done so.

Harry Winks (20m)

He’s 25 now, and like Sanchez, should move on to let more promising midfielders – Oliver Skipp and Gravenbach in this example – to take the helm.

Erik Lamela – (17M)

Probably time to move on while money could still be squeezed out of the player. His contract expires next year.

Danny Rose (N/A)

Sad, but he’s just a complete waste of wages at this point. Will go on a free in the summer.

Juan Foyth – (8M)

Time at Spurs is coming to an end – not in Mourinho’s plans.

Moussa Sissoko – (11M)

Like Winks – he’s 31-year-old – and should make way for the new-look midfield I’m trying to create here.

Loan out

Jack Clarke 

More minutes in the Championship would be the best thing for his career.

Troy Parrott 

The talented striker needs to have a successful loan spell to kick-start his career.

Dennis Cirkin 

Very talented, so deserves to get minutes as Ben Davies, Ryan Sessegnon, and Sergio Reguilon are currently ahead of him.

Money Spent

£145 million spent on the incomings. Sounds like Levy, right?

But £66.6 million pounds in the bank for players that won’t hurt the squad. Now that sounds more like Levy.

Overall Net Spend: £78.4 Million.

One can dream.
