According to Sportac’s data on how much the Tottenham players earn, the North London club would reduce their wage bill by over £19m if they sell Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks and Sergio Reguilon this summer.

It is clear that Ndombele, Lo Celso, Winks and Reguilon have no future under Antonio Conte, with none of the four players being involved in the Italian’s pre-season plans.

Tottenham have already added significantly to their wage bill this summer as the club have made six new signings in the form of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet (on loan) and Djed Spence.

Reports indicate that Spurs are now prioritising selling the players who are surplus to requirements before making other additions to their squad (Evening Standard).

According to Sportac, here is what the four aforementioned players, who are expected to leave this summer, are currently earning at N17:

Tanguy Ndombele – £200,000 (£10.4m per year)

Giovani Lo Celso – £70,000 (£3.6m per year)

Harry Winks – £50,000 (£2.6m per year)

Sergio Reguilon – £48,077 (£2.5m per year)

The Lilywhites would thus be able to reduce their wage bill by £19.1m if they sell these four, and potentially almost £21m if Japhet Tanganga (£1.2m per year) and Joe Rodon (£500,000 per year) follow them out of the door.

It is important to note here that Ndombele alone earns as much as Reguilon, Lo Celso, Winks, Tanganga and Rodon combined. So, unless we are able to shift the Frenchman, we would not really make much of a dent in our wage bill.

I cannot see us selling Ndombele this summer unless the 25-year-old agrees to take a massive wage cut. We would likely have to continue covering a significant chunk of the midfielder’s salary if we loan him out again.
