According to The Mirror, Tottenham are confident of completing their summer business ahead of their pre-season tour of South Korea next month.

Spurs completed the signings of Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster on free transfers even before the transfer window opened, and on Friday, the north London club announced their third signing of the summer followin the arrival of Yves Bissouma from Brighton.

Reports indicate that Tottenham are far from done this window, with Antonio Conte allegedly wanting two more defenders, an attacking midfielder and a striker (The Times).

According to reports, the Spurs players who were not involved in international fixtures this month are expected to report for pre-season at the start of July, with the club set to fly to South Korea on July 9 (Football.London).

The Lilywhites will play a K-League all-star team on July 13 before taking on La Liga outfi Sevilla three days later.

The Mirror have now revealed that Tottenham expect to wrap up their dealings before the squad departs for Asia.

That could potentially mean as many as four or five new arrivals within the space of the next three weeks.

Spurs Web Opinion

While I think most of the signings will be made before the trip to South Korea, I would be extremely surprised if all of our business is done by then.

One would expect a left centre-back and a right wing-back to be signed before pre-season since they are important areas that need to be filled.

While Spurs also need another central defender and a striker, I suspect that the club would be a little more patient with those additions since they are not as much of a priority.

In fact, I think a striker could be the final signing through the door as one would expect the likes of Everton to soften their stance on Richarlison later in the window.
