Tottenham faces another déjà vu summer over the future of two stars

By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham is looking to overhaul their squad this summer as they look to become more competitive.

They have finally replaced Jose Mourinho with Nuno Espirito Santo as their latest permanent manager.

The Portuguese will look to work with the players he considers best for his system.

Two players who have uncertain futures at the club are Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier and both have just a year left on their current deals.

Football London says Aurier has made it clear he doesn’t want to sign a new contract at the club and they want to sell Lamela.

However, there haven’t been any takers so far and the report says they risk facing a similar summer like that of 2019 when Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen all entered the last year of their contract with them and they had to make a decision.

They eventually sold Eriksen in that January, gave Alderweireld a new contract and allowed Vertonghen to leave for free.

They signed Matt Doherty to compete with Aurier last summer, but the Ivorian won the competition for a place with the Republic of Ireland international as he struggled for much of the campaign.

Lamela came off the bench to impress for the Lilywhites in some matches last season, but he has failed to be consistent enough since he joined back in 2013.

Lamela is still well thought of in Italy (they like dirty, niggling players there)
As for Serge I read a while back that PSG no wanty so let him do another season.
We have others who must go – I wont name them everybody knows their names

Tired old stuff. What happened to Aurier to PSG. The fact that Lamela is still here eight long years after signing tells its own story.
