Tottenham Hotspur are expected to have a a busy summer transfer window as the club look to rebuild their underperforming squad.
With the huge financial difficulties caused by the pandemic, Spurs must sell players in order to raise the funds to revamp a team that has finished seventh and sixth in the Premier League following four consecutive top four finishes.
On Thursday, the club announced that both Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga were leaving the club with their contracts coming to an end, as well as a large number of players from the development squad and a couple of scholars.
With Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius having come to the end of their loan spells, for now at least, they are not included in this list.
However, we have included various young players who have either made their first team debuts this season or have been out on loan, apart from goalkeeper Brandon Austin is on loan at Orlando City until November or December depending on their progress in the MLS.
Here’s our opinion on whether each Tottenham player should be kept, sold or loaned out:
As his contract approaches its final 12 months, Lloris was one of Tottenham’s most consistent performers this season.
The club want him to stay and would be open to offering him a new deal. At the least the 34-year-old should help them put off trying to find a new keeper until next summer. KEEP
A big voice in the dressing room and has plenty of experience to pass on. Also has another year left and he’s worth keeping around. KEEP
The 22-year-old made his debut this season in the Europa League and if he’s not going to push on to replace Gazzaniga then he needs a loan with another keeper brought in. LOAN
In the first half of the campaign the Ivorian impressed, but his performances were mixed as the season wore on. With 12 months left on his contract he might finally get his previous wish to move on this summer. SELL
Doherty has struggled to replicate his Wolves form at Tottenham since his move to the club and he isn’t playing as an out-and-out wing-back as he did for the Midlands club.
His final performance of the season at Leicester, his first start in a couple of months, was a good one though and hopefully signals that like many players he will adapt to his new role and club in his second season. KEEP
The former Chelsea right-back joined Spurs this season and made his senior debut for Spurs from the bench against Wolfsberger in the Europa League. At 20-years-old he could do with a loan. LOAN
Reguilon made a big impression at Tottenham after his summer move from Real Madrid before struggling after returning from an injury in January.
Unless Real Madrid unexpectedly move in with their buy-back clause, Spurs won’t be letting him go. KEEP
Davies ended the season with four assists and one goal to his name and is always an important squad player loved by managers. He might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but his versatility and importance to the squad across a whole season is often overlooked. His future could be tied into what Tottenham want to do with Sessegnon but it would leave two inexperienced left-backs if he was allowed to leave. KEEP
The 21-year-old need to continue to play regular first team football to continue his development, whether that comes as a left-back as Mourinho saw him or in a more attacking role. If he can’t get it at Tottenham he needs another loan. He’s got a long contract so he can afford to head out again if needed. LOAN
Injury problems ravaged the first half of the season for the 21-year-old and ended the campaign with an ankle ligament injury. Whenever he plays though he’s so composed and the new manager will hopefully give him opportunities. KEEP
Unless he wants to wind down back at Ajax or elsewhere, Spurs should keep an experienced defender who was still one of their most consistent players despite being in and out of the Premier League team at times. KEEP
Dier was Mourinho’s first-choice centre-back at Tottenham and he started the season well, but when he makes mistakes they’re often big ones. The new manager will have his say but Spurs want to bring in a new centre-back and Dier or Davinson Sanchez will have to make way in order to raise funds. So this is a ‘sell’ but it’s likely to be an either/or situation. SELL
The 23-year-old impressed in the second half of the season at Bournemouth and with a year left on his contract, Spurs will be looking to cash in with the Cherries interested. SELL
Like Dier, Sanchez has had a mixed campaign. He’s had some excellent games but also some poor ones and he still makes at least one basic mistake a game and the best teams punish that moment more often than not.
At 24-years-old he’s a player who has the tools to still improve but as above with Dier, it could be one or the other who moves on if a high enough bid comes in. SELL
One for the future after a frustrating first season and this summer’s Euros is going to be a huge learning experience for the 23-year-old, which should help the player and Tottenham next season. KEEP
This one is likely to be out of Tottenham’s hands. The Argentine has had an excellent campaign at Villarreal and was a warrior in their Europa League final victory on Wednesday night after an early smashed nose. The Spanish side have a £13m option to make his loan move permanent and Unai Emery has suggested he will tell the club to use it. SELL
Another defender who has had an excellent loan move, with Eyoma set to play in the League One Play-Off Final after a fine season with Lincoln. Another loan move likely beckons if he doesn’t move permanently to the Imps. LOAN
It’s been a nightmare of a season for Winks. He has started just nine Premier League matches this season and sometimes missed out on matchday squads entirely, resulting in him missing out on the Euros. The fans often have him as their scapegoat and while the new manager will have his say it would seem a good point for the 25-year-old to restart his career elsewhere. SELL
Hojbjerg played every minute in the Premier League for Tottenham in a fine debut season, even if he tired slightly towards the end through overuse. Spurs won’t want to let him go any time soon. KEEP
A useful member of the squad but he struggled for starts in 2021 and with his contract entering its final 12 months – albeit with an option to extend it by a year – he might be a candidate to move on if a good Euros leads to a bid. SELL
The 20-year-old shone on loan for Norwich as they won the Championship title and promotion back to the Premier League. He was one of the top players in the division this season and his development has been huge. If Winks does go then Skipp slots straight in for no extra costs. If no acceptable bids come in for Winks then Skipp needs to go back out on loan to continue his progress. He needs regular football. KEEP
A big season for Harvey White as he made his debut for Tottenham in the Europa League and FA Cup and got minutes on loan at Portsmouth. They want him back next season but he might be ready for another level. LOAN
A much better season from the Frenchman even if there’s still a feeling he can be much better. The new manager will want to see what he can do with the talented midfielder. KEEP
Another who made his debut this season as midfielder Nile, the now 18-year-old got nine minutes to his name in the Europa League match against Wolfsberger and was on the bench in the final game of the Premier League season at Leicester. Likely to continue to learn around the first team next season. KEEP
Giovani Lo Celso
The Argentine has had his season heavily impacted by injuries, not least by that serious hamstring problem. Lo Celso is yet to have a pre-season with Tottenham and he needs that foundation this time around to improve his ability to last a full season. KEEP
Just 16-years-old and he’s Tottenham’s youngest ever goalscorer and appearance maker after that cameo and low strike at Marine in the FA Cup. That he was on the bench twice in the Premier League despite his age says it all about how highly he’s rated. Too young for a loan yet and like John and others, the Europa Conference League might provide more opportunities for minutes. KEEP
Lucas improved as the season went on and enjoyed himself in the cup competitions, most notably in the Europa League. He might not be a regular starter in Spurs’ strongest XI but he can make an impact in matches when called upon. KEEP
Got a few minutes on the wing in two Europa League matches and the FA Cup tie at Marine before heading out on loan to Stoke City in the Championship and another loan move is likely. LOAN
It’s been a horrendous season for Alli in terms of his progression even if it ended with five consecutive starts under Mason. The new manager will be tasked with getting him back to his best. KEEP
Bergwijn started the season well and despite not having many starts since in recent months, he contributed seven assists this season – fourth in the team’s assist rankings – and scored that rocket against Aston Villa and with his work ethic and ability there’s plenty there for the next manager to work with. KEEP
Injury took away less of the Argentine’s season than normal and Lamela adds drive to Tottenham even if he needs to add more to his goals and assists tally.
His goal in the north London derby was one of the most audacious you’ll ever see and will sweep up the awards but was tempered by his first ever red card for Tottenham later in the game.
Lamela hasn’t started a match since that day and with just 12 months left on his contract an exit seems likely. SELL
The South Korean star managed 22 goals and 17 assists in 51 appearances, including 17 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League.
He played a lot of minutes, the third most in the team, which might have contributed to his reduced return as the season went on but Tottenham will not let him go anywhere. KEEP
A big debut season for the 17-year-old, becoming the youngest player to grab an assist in the Europa League since Kylian Mbappe did so against Spurs for Monaco. He got off the bench twice in the competition and made his Premier League debut against West Brom.
He’s going to be a star if he keeps his head down and works hard and everybody inside the club agrees. KEEP
With Scarlett likely to be in and around the first team, learning his trade, Parrott could get another chance to head out on loan and build on his experiences at Millwall and Ipswich. LOAN
Kane racked up an incredible 33 goals and 17 assists this season for Spurs and walked away with both the Golden Boot and Playmaker award in the Premier League with the most goals and assists.
His future is the source of plenty of speculation but Tottenham are loathed to let him go and it would take a ridiculous offer to even start talks with the club. He’s as close to irreplaceable as you can get. KEEP
