Jose Mourinho has been given assurances that Tottenham are not planning to sell any of their major stars this summer, despite the financial problems posed by the Covid-19 crisis.
However, some fringe players may be sold to raise funds, with record-signing Tanguy Ndombélé possibly on his way out of the club after just a year. The French midfielder was signed from Lyon for a fee of £53.8 million last summer but has failed to settle in North London and both his attitude and his fitness have been criticised by Mourinho.
In terms of incoming business, chairman Daniel Levy has indicated that limited funds may be available and finding somebody to compete for the goalkeeping jersey with Hugo Lloris has been identified as a priority, especially given that the Frenchman has now entered the final year of his current contract.
Possible names that have been touted are Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale and Watford’s ben Foster, especially if both clubs are relegated this weekend, whilst Fulham’s Marcus Bettinelli is also under consideration.
