Tottenham want seven new signings and ‘could offload’ as many – including house-hunting Christian Eriksen.
The Champions League runners-up have not made a single signing since that of Lucas Moura in January 2018, with Mauricio Pochettino stating it was “imperative” for Tottenham to change that this summer.
Jack Clarke is the closest to joining after undergoing a medical ahead of his £10m move from Leeds, while difficult negotiations are well underway over priority target Tanguy Ndombele.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas stated that Tottenham’s first offer for the midfielder was £31.4m short of their valuation, with Juventus also interested.
The north London side are also expected to follow up their failed club-record bid for Giovani Lo Celso, but The Times claim Pochettino ‘also wants’ Ryan Sessegnon ‘and potentially another two defenders and a reserve striker’.
One of the defenders could be Lucas Digne, who would be targeted if Danny Rose was to leave.
In the same story, it is suggested that the manager’s desire to ‘rejuvenate the squad’ means they ‘could offload seven players’, with Fernando Llorente among them.
Christian Eriksen could also be included, as it is said that his ‘family members have been seen looking for a house in Madrid’.
Eriksen outlined his desire to leave in the aftermath of the Champions League final – and Tottenham really should go all in on his departure – but the Dane is still valued at £100m.

Even with a only a year left on his contract, the fact that Real Madrid, his likely destination, are reluctant to enter a bidding war over Paul Pogba could weigh in Eriksen’s favour.
