Following Perisic arrival, Tottenham close in on £35m transfer windfall


Tottenham could be set to part with two players very soon, according to reports.

Before that, though, the Lilywhites have confirmed their first signing of the 2022 summer transfer window:

“We are delighted to announce the transfer of Ivan Perisic. The vastly experienced Croatia international will join the Club on 1 July following the expiration of his contract at Internazionale and has agreed a deal that will run until 2024,” Tottenham said in a statement on Tuesday.


And whilst Perisic does not look to be Tottenham’s only incoming of the summer, Antonio Conte and co. are also seemingly keen to move a few players out.

Several names have already been linked with a Spurs exit over the last few weeks and now, the Express citing the Evening Standard report that Antonio Conte will be eager to add to his squad this window and Harry Winks and Giovani Lo Celso could depart north London to fund potential incomings.

It is alleged that Spurs want £20m for Harry Winks and that Villarreal have already agreed a deal to sign Lo Celso.

The Argentine, of course, spent the second half of 2021/22 on loan with Unai Emery’s side and played a key role in them making it to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

And now, Spurs are expected to get £15m for the South American, with around another £5m potentially available in bonuses.

Said funds would likely see Tottenham target a centre-back or two as they already have a decent number of central midfielders on their books, provided Oliver Skipp can stay fit next term.
