In response to whether the club are still looking to bring more players in this summer, the reliable journalist claimed:
“Players need to head out of the door in the weeks ahead and Conte told me out in Korea that the club will continue to look for further opportunities to improve the squad.”
The Verdict: Big overhaul
With lots of new faces arriving through the door at Hotspur Way, the Lilywhites have also seen a number of departures this summer.
Winger Steven Bergwijn was finally granted his N17 exit, with the player opting to join Dutch giants Ajax for a £26.4m fee.
Cameron Carter-Vickers returned to former loan club Celtic on a permanent deal, with Jack Clarke also returning to his former loan side Sunderland for a £10m fee.
With a handful of departures still expected to be completed before the transfer window closes in September, Tottenham fans could expect to see a variety of new players lining up in a Lilywhites shirt next season, making this one of the biggest overhauls of Spurs’ squad in recent times.
