Tottenham are looking to spend big during the summer transfer window, with reinforcements planned at both ends of the game.
Newcastle might ruin Tottenham’s summer transfer plans. Spurs are expected to look for defensive reinforcements at the conclusion of the season, albeit they may lose Lloyd Kelly to Premier League opponents.

Tottenham have progressed significantly under Ange Postecoglou, playing an attacking style of football that has gotten the best out of players such as Heung-min Son and Pedro Porro. Micky van de Ven and James Maddison, who joined the squad in the summer, have fit right in, while other newcomers have impressed.

January signings Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin have made an immediate impact in north London, and Tottenham’s transfer market confidence is building as a result. Postecoglou is poised to change up his roster further at the end of the season, with player sales funding his revamp.

However, Spurs are looking to make one addition without depleting their transfer budget, with Bournemouth’s Kelly mentioned as a key target. The versatile defender is poised to become a free agent this summer and has been on Tottenham’s radar since January.

According to The Mirror, Newcastle are planning a ‘strong push’ for the 25-year-old. The Magpies are urgently looking for defensive reinforcements after losing Sven Botman to a catastrophic knee injury that will keep him out for up to nine months.

Newcastle are concerned about how their spending will affect their profit and sustainability situation this summer, therefore securing Kelly’s services for no transfer fee is considered as a top piece of business by officials at St James’ Park, filling a vital void in their team.

West Ham, AC Milan, and Juventus are among the many clubs that have spoken with the Cherries defender’s representatives, while Spurs have also contacted Kelly’s camp to gauge their interest.

It remains to be seen where Kelly will play his football next season, and whether European football is a persuasive factor in negotiations, as Tottenham hopes to offer, or if the promise of more regular opportunities at Newcastle is more appealing.
