It will once again be another very important transfer window for Tottenham this summer as they look to hit the next level under Ange Postecoglou. The Australian has made a real mark at the football club since his arrival last June and the Lilywhites are in an excellent position to return to the Champions League after one year away.

What has helped Tottenham over the course of the season is some astute signings in the transfer market. Guglielmo Vicario, Micky van de Ven and James Maddison have all flourished in this Tottenham team, with January loan signing Timo Werner also doing likewise since joining from RB Leipzig at the turn of the year.

While of course all eyes will be on incomings at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ahead of the 2024/25 Premier League season, outgoings are also going to be crucial in terms of shaping Postecoglou's squad. So which players could possibly move on to start Tottenham's summer transfer window overhaul? takes a look below.

Oliver Skipp

Skipp could potentially be in the headlines in the summer regarding a move after a lack of football under Postecoglou this term. The midfielder has failed to make the matchday squad in four of Tottenham's last five Premier League games due to the midfield options at the head coach's disposal.

What Tottenham do need to be mindful of in the summer when it comes to Skipp is the club's homegrown numbers that are so important.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

One player who does look set to leave ahead of next term is Hojbjerg. The Dane has gone from a Tottenham regular to playing a bit-part role and it's not a situation the midfielder wants to be in.

Hojbjerg needs to get back to starting games week in, week out and that likely means a move away from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. His experience and nous will be a big miss if he is to head elsewhere.

Bryan Gil

Gil needs a permanent transfer for the sake of his career after barely featuring for Tottenham this term. The Spaniard has got the odd appearance under his belt here and there but it's not enough for him as he is at a crucial age in his development.

It unfortunately hasn't worked out for Gil in N17 but Tottenham should still have plenty of offers on the table for a player of his quality.

Emerson Royal

It will be interesting to see what happens in regards to Emerson in the summer after Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr failed with a bid for the Brazilian at the start of the year. Interest from Saudi Arabia could possibly be there once again come the summer and that will leave Tottenham with a call to make over the right-back.

Tottenham really could do with finding an alternative for Pedro Porro as they don't have a like-for-like replacement in the squad, thus possibly paving the way for Emerson to move on elsewhere.

Giovani Lo Celso

Tottenham are going to have a call to make over Lo Celso in the summer as he will soon enter the final year of his Spurs contract. Only going to be play a limited role for the Lilywhites with James Maddison operating in his position, the best option for the club could be to sell the Argentina international permanently.

Tottenham would still be able to bring in a decent fee for the midfielder despite his contract status and there should be plenty of interest in his services.

Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon is going to finish the 2023/24 term with only one appearance to his name after another injury-hit season. As reported by last month, the 23-year-old only has a year left on his contract if the club take up the final 12-month option within his deal.

It may be the best time for both parties to go their separate ways as Sessegnon aims to get his career back on track.

Tanguy Ndombele

Tottenham really need to find a way of moving Ndombele on permanently this summer. Like Lo Celso, the midfielder will soon be in the final year of his contract in north London.

The problem for Tottenham, however, is that the 27-year-old has endured another extremely underwhelming loan spell with Galatasaray to follow on from his previous disappointing loans with former club Lyon and also Napoli.

Sergio Reguilon

Reguilon is now getting some regular minutes in the tank across the capital with Brentford. Initially starting the season on loan at Manchester United, the Spaniard made the move to west London midway through January as his time at Old Trafford came to an early end.

Reguilon is faring well for the Bees and hopefully it will lead to a permanent move as Tottenham plan for the future.

Djed Spence

This summer is a key one for Spence with his move to Tottenham in 2022 just not working out at all. Now playing his football in Serie A with Genoa, the right wing-back has found himself in and out of the Italian team with five starts and four substitute appearances to his name so far.

If indeed he can finish the season strongly with Genoa, it could drum up some interest in his services and that may allow Spurs to at least recoup the money they paid Middlesbrough for the 23-year-old two years ago.

Japhet Tanganga

Once again enduring some horrendous luck on the injury front and seeing his loan move to Augsburg brought to an early end after not even making a solitary appearance for the German outfit, Tanganga is now finishing the term on loan in the Championship with Millwall.

The versatile defender has made 14 appearances for the Lions so far, with 13 of those coming from the start of games, and he has also netted his first senior goals for the south east London club. Another who will soon be in the final year of his Tottenham contract, Tanganga needs to find a new club this summer for the sake of his career.

Joe Rodon

Tottenham shouldn't struggle to move on Rodon in the summer after a superb season on loan with Leeds United. The Wales international has excelled at the heart of Daniel Farke's Leeds defence and there will undoubtedly be a number of clubs interested in signing him going on his top performances.

Leeds want to sign the player permanently and a potential permanent deal could be made that bit easier if the West Yorkshire club return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Troy Parrott

Another player who has enjoyed a very good campaign out on loan is Parrott. After his time with MK Dons and Preston North End in recent seasons, the Republic of Ireland international is now making a name for himself in the Netherlands with Excelsior Rotterdam.

He has seven goals and three assists to his name this term from 24 appearances and his displays have led to reported interest from Dutch giants Ajax and PSV. Tottenham shouldn't have a problem moving on the player permanently if that's what they choose to do.

Brandon Austin or Alfie Whiteman

This summer could also see one of Austin or Whiteman depart Tottenham on a permanent basis. Austin has played second fiddle to Vicario of late due to Fraser Forster's injury but the 25-year-old's contract current comes to an end this summer.

Whiteman does have an extra year on his deal but he is fourth in the pecking order when everyone is fully fit. A decision needs to be made over the duo as they are both at the age now where they need to be playing regularly for the sake of their careers.
