Daniel Levy and Ange Postecoglou risk losing five Tottenham players on free transfers in 2024

Five members of Ange Postecoglou’s current Tottenham squad will be allowed to leave the club as free agents next summer.

Despite a promising start to life under Ange Postecoglou, Tottenham has a lot more to accomplish in the forthcoming transfer windows. Spurs must ensure that, after a few of difficult seasons in north London, they return to fighting for a top-four berth on a regular basis and do not continue to yo-yo between the many European competitions on offer.

Last month, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino indicated that the club needs another two of transfer windows to become the club he envisions. Tottenham only sold five players on permanent contracts in the summer, but the next couple of transfer windows might see them add to their team even more.

The club will need to keep an eye on player contracts as they plan for the future, with decisions needed on five players who will be eligible to go on free transfers next summer, which chairman Daniel Levy will want to avoid. In this article, we examine at the five players who might potentially leave Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for nothing in 2024.

Ivan Perisic

Perisic, who suffered an ACL damage in his right knee during non-contact training last month, may have already played his final game for Tottenham. It’s an injury that will likely keep him out for the rest of the season.

His absence is a huge setback for Postecoglou and the Spurs, as he proven his significance to the squad in the first few games of the season. Despite not getting as many minutes as he would have wanted due to having to adjust to a bench role, the Croat contributed two assists and was instrumental in Lisandro Martinez’s own goal in their 2-0 win over Manchester United in August.

With the player set to turn 35 at the beginning of February, the odds of a contract extension look extremely small as Postecoglou and Spurs plan for the future. If he does miss the rest of the season due to injury, it will be a harsh way for him to leave Tottenham after contributed so much at the start of the season.

Hugo Lloris

Despite declaring his intention to leave Tottenham at the start of the summer, Lloris is still a Spurs player. A deal never materialised before the summer transfer deadline, and Spurs eventually enrolled him as part of their 25-man Premier League squad despite previous doubts about his status in the squad.

Lloris, who has continued to practise with Spurs but has yet to make a matchday squad this season, might leave the club in January if the appropriate offer comes along. If not, his long affiliation with Tottenham will come to an end in the summer.

Eric Dier

Dier is another long-serving player who appears to be on his way out at the end of the season. Previously a regular starter for the Lilywhites, the England international has yet to play for the squad this season.

With no cup games on the horizon until Spurs enter the third round of the FA Cup in January, the player’s chances in the first team will be highly limited due to the form of Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven. A contract extension would allow Dier to choose from a number of clubs next summer, and he would almost certainly receive a large signing-on fee because he will be joining his next club on a free transfer.

Tottenham are currently well-stocked in goalkeepers, but three of those already on the books will see their contracts expire next summer. Forster is one of them, having agreed to a two-year contract after moving to the capital in June 2022.

 

Brandon Austin

Austin is Tottenham’s third and final contract expiring next summer. The academy graduate’s chances of making the first squad are modest, to say the least, since he is currently third-choice behind Vicario and Forster.

While Tottenham may profit from keeping Austin around to provide adequate coverage between the posts, the 24-year-old will eventually want to leave for the sake of his own career. Austin has limited first-team experience, having only spent time on loan with Viborg and Orlando, and the summer of 2024 could be the ideal moment to rectify that.
