It’s the last international break of the season, and thus, Tottenham Hotspur are currently off until March 31, when they visit Liverpool. We don’t have a game to talk about for awhile, but there are plenty of transfer rumors to discuss. The summer transfer window doesn’t open for awhile yet, but the futures of many key Spurs players remains up in the air.

Let’s take a spin through the inter webs and see what’s buzzing in Spurs cyberspace right now in regards to summer transfer rumors.

Tottenham Hotspur are ready to revamp the right back position, as they are keen on shipping out Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier, claims The Sun.

Trippier, who had a solid World Cup with England this past summer, has been limited by injury and had a very disappointing club campaign.

The London outlet says Everton are interested, with a valuation to the tune of about £20 million. As for Aurier, Tottenham took a gamble and paid £23 million for a player who came with baggage from PSG, and it hasn’t exactly paid off.

He just hasn’t worked out, and Tottenham would, the narrative goes, be willing to part with him for even half of what they paid. If these deals actually get done, the north London side would absolutely half to go out get a replacement(s) and that would end their streak of transfer windows without a single acquisition streak at three.

The targets for Spurs include Aaron Wan-Bissaka of Crystal Palace and Max Aarons of Norwich City. Both of which would then, at least under this specific scenario, battle it out with Kyle Walker-Peters for the first choice slot at the position.

Shifting gears to another position group, midfielder Franck Kessie of AC Milan is a very sought after man, according to Calciomercato. You can count Spurs among the clubs, supposedly, interested in obtaining him, but it seems likely that a bidding war might ensue.

The Italian outlet reports that Kessie is in very high demand, writing that he’s “often been targeted by Beijing Guoan in China, and also has admirers in the Premier League: Tottenham, West Ham and Arsenal.”

Given the pressing need that Tottenham’s arch-rivals have at this position, expect them to pursue Kessie pretty aggressively.
