Tottenham working on 8 deadline day transfers to finalise Postecoglou squad

Spurs transfer news takes a look at the incoming and outgoing business Tottenham are looking to complete before the transfer window shuts at 11pm on deadline day.

Tottenham still have plenty of work to do in the summer transfer window. And there is only today to get final business done with transfer deadline day upon us.

The summer window closes at 11pm on Friday night with Spurs having to get all of their business done before then. The majority of transfer business in N17 will be outgoing, but there could be some incomings too.

It could be a busy day in the white half of north London, despite 13 deals having already been completed (six in and seven out). Here football.london takes a look at the transfers that could be completed on deadline day…

Incomings

Brennan Johnson is the main incoming transfer Spurs will be looking to get over the line on Friday. The financial situation is likely to be the only sticking point though, with Nottingham Forest looking for a fee in the region of £50million.

That figure could be brought down by Spurs offering a player in return – Davinson Sanchez’s name has been mooted. Gift Orban had been linked with a move to Spurs too, but Johnson is the one Spurs want to get done.

Ansu Fati is another name that has been linked in the late stages of the transfer window, with the Barcelona youngster tipped to leave the Camp Nou. At this late stage, however, getting a deal done would seem unlikely.

In defence, head coach Ange Postecoglou is looking for another centre-back. Perr Schuurs from Torino is the main link, while Tosin Adarabioyo from Fulham would improve the club’s homegrown numbers. One of those need to be completed, with Spurs short in defence, particularly if players leave on deadline day.

Outgoings

That leads us nicely into outgoing transfers. As mentioned already, Sanchez has been linked with a departure from the club, potentially as a makeweight in the Johnson deal. If not, there could even be interest from elsewhere for the Colombian’s services.
