After Tottenham spent nearly £1bn on their new 62,000-seater stadium, Mauricio Pochettino has only £50m to put towards new signings this summer. Daniel Levy will also allow the Spurs boss to spend whatever he makes through player sales.

Tottenham have a lot of unwanted players who are expected to leave in the coming weeks – Michel Vorm, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Josh Onomah, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou. The Lilywhites also have five first-team players who could be on the move for more lucrative fees – Kieran Trippier, Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen, Fernando Llorente, Vincent Janssen.

So, how much money could Spurs raise? (Wage figures from Spotrac)

Vorm will be released at the end of his contract on June 30, saving the club £2.08m-a-year. Carter-Vickers’ could be sold for £5m and would save Spurs £1.04m-a-year. Onomah’s sale could earn Tottenham £1.56m-a-year in wages. N’Koudou could be sold for £10m and would save them £1.82m-a-year in wages.

As for the first-team players, Trippier could be sold for £35m and would save Spurs £3.38m-a-year. Alderweireld has a £25m release clause whose sale would save Tottenham £4.16m-a-year. Eriksen wants to leave and has a £100m asking price. His sale would save the club £3.9m-a-year in wages. Llorente’s release will save £3.9m-a-year. Janssen could be sold for £10m and would save £1.78m-a-year.

In total, Spurs have the potential to raise £185m and an extra £23.6m in wages = £208.6m.

  • THFC could raise almost 1,000,000,000 by selling the new WHL, no? Imagine the players we could buy with that money?

    Crippy, why do you keep writing that we have only 50,000,000 to spend when most other places are saying we have 150,000,000? Either way, add that to the 1,000,000,000 from selling the stadium and we could get replacements for most of the squad. All of the squad, no?

    How much would we have to pay in rent to play our home matches in Leeds? I’m sure no one would mind the trip there 20 times in the coming season. I’m not sure the PL would allow us to play our home matches in Aberdeen. DL could work out a deal for us to play in some NFL stadium, like Foxboro, MA.

    How much did we get from letting Worm go?
