The Telegraph have revealed that Tottenham are already committed to spending around £100m on the signings of Cristian Romero, Dejan Kulusevski and Sergio Reguilon, with the payment for the Spaniard not owed until this summer.
Romero joined on a season-long loan deal from Atalanta last summer, with Spurs having the option to buy the centre-back for £42.5m (Football.London).
Meanwhile, Spurs can make Kulusevski’s signing permanent for a fee of either €35m (£29.6m) this summer or €45m (£38m) in the summer of 2023 (Fabrizio Romano).
The Telegraph reveal that Spurs have already committed to signing both Romero and Kulusevski permanently.
In addition, it is explained that Tottenham negotiated a deal with Real Madrid for Reguilon in 2020 that only required the payment to be made in his third summer at the club.
The combined cost of signing the three players is expected to come to around £100m.
The report explains that the North Londoners will thus be somewhat reliant on getting decent fees for the players who are surplus to requirements in order to push ahead with moves for their targets.

One would imagine that Paratici and Levy will strike similar deals that summer that require the fees to be paid in instalments rather than upfront. So the fact that we owe £100m on the three aforementioned players should be as big a constraint as it might appear to be.
