It could be a busy summer of business for Spurs if perhaps not so financially crippling.
It’s been an odd season for Tottenham Hotspur in 2013/14 as they adjust to life without Gareth Bale and the influx of a number of expensive signings.
After selling Bale to Real Madrid for a world record £85.3m last summer Spurs then broke their club record transfer three times as seven new players were bought in.
However, many of the new faces haven’t quite settled into life at White Hart Lane as well as chairman Daniel Levy would have liked and it cost Andre Villas-Boas his job in December 2013.
Since then Tim Sherwood has guided them steadily, but much improvement is needed as Tottenham miss out on Champions League qualification yet again.
Here is how the squad could look in north London next season.
Staying: Hugo Lloris.
Going: Brad Friedel, Heurelho Gomes.
Coming in: Karl Darlow (Mirror).
There are several reports stating that current No.1 Lloris will want to leave the club in the summer in pursuit of top European football.
Whilst the France captain is certainly good enough to compete at the very top, the 27-year-old is settled in England and we expect the ‘keeper to stay.
However, Gomes has finally come to the end of his lucrative contract and will certainly be released, as will veteran Friedel – who will probably retire aged 41-years-old.
Therefore a backup will be needed and Nottingham Forest stopper Darlow could be just the man, especially if the Championship club do not earn promotion to the top tier.
