The Tottenham superstars who could be heading for the exit this summer

Hit with a 2-1 defeat away at bitter rivals West Ham on Sunday lunchtime, Tottenham find themselves in the midst of a real domestic nightmare in North London.

With many feeling that Jose Mourinho’s days are numbered, Spurs have spiraled down to ninth in the table and on a run of form that has seen them lose six of their last seven domestic contests.

With their recent issues highlighted by that stunning 5-4 defeat at Goodison Park on FA Cup duties earlier in the month, many have started to speculate over the future of some of their biggest stars.

With their chances of landing a Champions League return taking another serious dent over the weekend, who could be looking for a North London exit come the summer?

Harry Kane

Even if Tottenham are able to lift the EFL Cup when they face off against Manchester City in April, many wonder if that would be enough to tempt Harry Kane to extend his stay in the capital.

While the England skipper has continued to impress on an individual level this season, he is yet to lift a single piece of silverware during his record-breaking tenure at Spurs.

Already notching himself 13 Premier League strikes this season, the 27-year-old has been heavily linked with an eye-watering £150million move away from his boyhood club this summer.

Previously admitting to Sky Sports last year that he would be open to the idea of a change of scenery at some point, Manchester City have been tipped as the favourite to secure Kane’s signature.

Priced at 3/1 with Betfair to make the move to the Etihad this summer, Sergio Aguero’s current contract situation has made it no secret that Pep Guardiola should be eyeing a new world-class striker.

Son Heung-min

While Tottenham fans might rightfully be nervous about keeping hold of Kane in the summer, there still remains some speculation surrounding Son Heung-min’s future in North London.

Forming what has been an almost telepathic relationship with the England skipper, the South Korean star has seen his current contract situation at Spurs come under more scrutiny.

Although Daniel Levy might reportedly be keen on extending Son’s current deal which runs until 2023, the 28-year-old appears to be in no rush to commit his future to the Premier League club.

Turning 29 in July and also yet to lift a piece of silverware since joining from Bayer Leverkusen five years ago, it has been suggested that a number of Europe’s biggest clubs have been put on red alert.

With 13 Premier League goals to his name so far this season, Italian outlet Calciomercato reported last week that defending Serie A giants Juventus are keen on bringing Son to Turin in the summer.

Hugo Lloris

With some sections of the Tottenham fan base blaming Hugo Lloris for West Ham’s opener on Sunday lunchtime, Spurs’ skipper finds himself under growing pressure in the capital.

Making a string of high-profile mistakes this season, the World Cup-winner turned 34 back in December and many feel that Mourinho’s side are desperately seeking a new man between the sticks.

While the French keeper might have given eight years of service to the Premier League outfit, it appears that Lloris could be in line to make a return back to his native country come the summer.

After it was announced that Spurs’ #1 is still in regular contact with former boss and new PSG Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino, Football Insider reported last week that the French giants are keen on bringing Lloris to the Parc des Princes.

With Lloris’ current deal at Tottenham coming to an end next season, it is believed that Spurs are willing to cash in on their fading shot-stopper.
