The summer transfer window is officially open for teams in the Premier League and Tottenham Hotspur expects to be able to do business for the first time since January 2018.

The final defeat of the Champions League against Liverpool was disappointing, but the Spurs will now try to respond by acting on the market as they will to rebuild Mauricio Pochettino's team and strengthen themselves before their first full season in their new stadium.

Here's a look at the latest transfer rumors surrounding Tottenham before what will surely be a busy summer.

Christian Eriksen
Christian Eriksen, star of the Spurs, has declared that he wants to "try something new" in the middle of the links to Real Madrid this summer.

The Denmark international has been in north London for six years, and admits he would like to join the Spanish club, but have not yet communicated with the Spurs about a change.

Eriksen told Ekstra Bladet that he would be happy to stay in North London and that he has the "deepest respect" for the club, but says he wants to move forward.

"I have the most savage and profound respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham, and it will not be negative either."

"But I also said that I would like to try something new, I hope there is a clarification during the summer, that's the plan.

"In football you do not know when a clarification comes in. It can happen at any time.

"Everyone wants the best if it happens as soon as possible, but in football things take time."

"It depends on Daniel Levy, and another club has to come in. Or I have to sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract, you cannot set a date against yourself."

"There are not many points that Tottenham cannot meet, if I have to go, then I hope it's a step forward."

"[Real Madrid] It's a step forward, but it requires that Real Madrid call Tottenham and say they want Christian, and they have not done it yet, as far as I know.

"It's difficult, it depends on the possibilities, if nothing is more exciting, why not stay in Tottenham, if I sign a new contract, it depends on the conditions."
