Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Tottenham on Thursday, July 30.

The buildup to the summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Tottenham Hotspur eye possible reinforcements.

Spurs were among the biggest spenders during the January transfer window but are expected to be active again in the summer as Jose Mourinho continues to mould his squad.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified five players that he is keen to bring to North London during the summer transfer window.

Following the devastating financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Spurs are not expected to be in the market for big-money signings this summer.

Instead, swap and part-exchange deals are expected to be commonplace for the Lilywhites, who are supposedly set to record a £200m loss in the wake of the ongoing viral outbreak.

However, according to The Mirror, the Spurs manager is planning an overhaul of his squad regardless and has drawn up a five-man wishlist following the reopening of the transfer window.

Southampton's Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been frequently linked with a switch to Spurs, and the midfielder is understood to be Mourinho's priority target ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Atalanta defender Timothy Castagne, Beijing Guoan centre-back Kim Min-jae and Bournemouth duo Callum Wilson and David Brooks are believed to be the other four players on Mourinho's radar.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly made progress in negotiations with Southampton for midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

With less than 12 months remaining on his contract, Hojbjerg has decided to request a move away from St Mary's during the summer transfer window.

While Everton have been linked with the Denmark international, it has been widely claimed that the 24-year-old would prefer a switch to Spurs.

According to Sky Sports News, the relevant parties are continuing to hold positive discussions regarding a deal.

Despite Spurs currently bidding significantly below Hojbjerg's £25m asking price, there remains the possibility of the Saints also signing Kyle Walker-Peters in part-exchange.

The report suggests that Southampton are prepared to consider their options before pressing ahead with a bid for the full-back, who has just concluded a loan spell on the South Coast.
