New Deals for Current Squad – Spurs Hold Fire On Transfer Window
Tottenham are not considering the sale of any players until after the 2018 World Cup, according to ESPN. Instead, Spurs are just looking to cement current first team deals.
Several fringe players are being linked with moves away from the club, with ESPN claiming that those players won’t be allowed to leave until the club’s internationals return from Russia.
Fernando Llorente, Vincent Janssen, and Moussa Sissoko are all thought to be on their way out. None of them, however are actually featuring at the World Cup.
Therefore, once the tournament is over, Spurs are likely to begin listening to offers from interested parties.
It is rumoured that some of Tottenham’s international stars are being connected to high profile club moves. The media has little to go on at present, but you can rest assured that agent phone lines are buzzing in the background.
In the coming weeks it’s expected that Toby Alderweireld will leave, after failing to agree terms on a new contract earlier this year.
Inter Milan have also registered an interest in Mousa Dembele, who has only one year left on his current deal.
Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t want to let go of players as easily as some of Spurs’ previous managers have. Along with Daniel Levy’s famed hard-line negotiating stance, they look set to fight to keep these players.
Among Tottenham’s key players who are playing in the World Cup this summer, Harry Kane and Davinson Sanchez have both signed new contracts. The club are wanting to tie down all their current first team players to long-term deals.
Despite this fact, Spurs’ mercurial Dane Christian Eriksen is yet to sign a new contract, and sorting out this situation is still considered a top priority for Manager Pochettino. Eriksen will look to sign a new deal after the World Cup, but until then some question marks will remain.
