After Spurs failed to qualify for the Champions League this season, the club have to carefully consider the long term plans of certain players in order to reduce their wage bill and invest it into their summer purchases.
Two players who are extremely likely to leave the North London side this summer are Louis Saha and Giovani Dos Santos.
The release of Saha has been met with the rumour that their London rivals, West Ham, are looking to snap up the star on a free agent. However, with nothing official coming from Louis Saha’s Twitter page nor the Tottenham website, it is unknown if the French international is going to join another Premiership side anytime soon.
But if he is to leave, should he go to West Ham? With the Championship side being promoted last season in the play-off final to secure a position in the forthcoming Premier League season, the Hammers have a lot more money to spend on wages as well as transfers. But with this proven goalscorer being available on a free transfer, this signing wouldn’t damage the bank too badly.
However, the injury prone striker has had his career damaged with constant games out due to health fears consisting of muscle tears, damaged ankles and ligament strains.
Saha scores 1 goal every 3 games on average scoring 42 goals in 120 appearances for Manchester United , and 3 goals out of 9 for Tottenham Hotspur. But, even without Saha’s goals this season, the club would have received the same amount of points and still would have finished fourth, which questions his ability to score important goals.
Another player who might be leaving White Hart Lane this summer is troubled prospect Giovani Dos Santos. TutterMercatoWeb are suggesting that the Tottenham midfielder might move to Swansea City in the transfer window.
The Mexican currently has one year left on his contract but the former Barcelona player would only move if first team football is likely.
The 23 year old was recently claimed to have said that he wanted first team football or a move away from London, which is apparently likely according to reports.
However, with the likely transfer of Sigurdsson from Hoffenheim on a permenant basis taking a large sum from the Swans’ transfer budget, it looks like their will be a long negotation process if this deal is to go through.
