It feels like the January transfer window shut just yesterday, however, time moves fast in football and it is time to turn our attention towards what might be Tottenham’s biggest summer transfer window in well over a decade.

It is no secret that the squad needs some major reinforcements, and Conte will demand a lot. Now as our chairman is Levy, we know that the club will be on the lookout for a good bargain and trying to do business on the cheap as usual.

Therefore, I thought I would look at 10 players who are out of contract this summer that Spurs could snap up (TransferMarkt). I will explain why and give a likelihood out of ten rating.

Paulo Dybala

The Dybala saga feels like a lifetime ago now; however, he has a previous relationship with Paratici and would be an exciting marquee signing that would get fans into the stadium.

6/10 (if we can sort those naming rights issues out this time!)

Ousmane Dembele

Whilst this is not a player we need, he is still a world-class talent despite recent issues, and similarly to Dybala, would be a marquee signing. However, due to various factors, I believe this deal is far less likely to be completed.

4/10

Christian Eriksen

Whether or not it is nostalgia talking I am not sure, however, I say bring the Dane home! He has shown in recent performances the quality is still there, and I don’t think personal terms would be an issue on this one.

7/10

Andreas Christensen

Now, this is a priority area for Spurs. We need a centre back, and Christensen does have experience in the premier league, and at the age of 25, still has room to learn and grow. I suspect a host of other clubs will be after his signature, however, with Barcelona probably at the front of the queue (Fabrizio Romano).

5/10

Jesse Lingard

After his loan move to West Ham, Lingard showed the league there is still a player in him, and I believe he could work well within our squad. This one more realistic than some of the others.

7/10

Juan Cuadrado

Despite his advancing age, the Colombian still possesses a lot of quality and has been playing the RWB role quite well, a position we clearly need to strengthen in. Again, the Paratici link does not hurt.

7/10

Luka Modric

Even at the age of 36, Modric is still bossing champions league nights. The Croatian is ageing like fine wine, and it would be a joy to see him end his career where he made his name. However, would ages pose a problem? Perhaps. I also expect him to sign a new Real Madrid extension.

4/10

Boubacar Kamara

The young Marseille midfielder has been linked with a move to the Premier League and would be a fine addition to the midfield. The player has a lot of potential and could make an exciting pairing alongside Bentancur.

8/10

Alessio Romagnoli

Over the past few years, the 27-year-old has established himself as one of Italy’s top defenders and an Italian international. This would be a top signing, and one who I believe would work well with Conte and bring a much-needed improvement to the backline.

7/10

Gareth Bale

A third and final dance? Bale showed what he can still do even with limited game time in his last stint in a Spurs shirt, and to have a winner like that amongst the squad is always invaluable. I don’t see a reason why this move couldn’t happen again, and I for one am all for it.

8/10
