Fabio Paratici’s future Tottenham plans and the contract calls he needs to make to build his dream squad


Much is expected of Fabio Paratici at Tottenham as he seeks to get the club back on track after two disappointing seasons in north London.

The Italian will officially arrive on Thursday July 1st as the manager of football and enjoy a great reputation in the capital after his good work during his 11 years at Juventus.

Paratici still has a lot of work to do to improve the current Tottenham squad and there will no doubt be a lot of movement in terms of additions and departures ahead of the summer transfer deadline.

The new man must also start planning for the future by making a decision about the players who will be out of contract in both 2022 and 2023.

While those contracts with a remaining term of one year naturally have priority, Spurs cannot afford to let these contracts expire too much with an additional year as transfer valuations then begin to decline.

So who is out of contract with Tottenham in 2023 and what could the future hold for them? football.london take a look.

Toby Alderweireld

It appeared that the 2019-2020 season would be Alderweireld’s last at Tottenham, with the clubs having the option to activate a £ 25m release clause in his contract in the summer of 2019.

With no one opting for this option, the Belgian defender’s future still looked precarious as he was out of contract at the end of that season.

However, he signed a three-year deal shortly after Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino on the hot seat.

Spurs and Paratici will turn 33 next March and will make a decision about the player’s future over the next 12 months as they plan for the future.

Tottenham doesn’t want to be in the same boat as they did in 2019, when Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen entered the final year of their contracts are offering him new terms.

Alderweireld’s place in the new manager’s plans will tell us a lot about where the future is headed.

Mussa Sissoko

For his good form, Sissoko was rewarded with a new four-year contract in September 2019.

The Frenchman, who was an important part of the midfield when he allowed the team to reach the Champions League final a few months earlier, now finds himself in the team because of the club’s options.

If Sissoko actually stays at Tottenham next season and doesn’t face a loss on the summer transfer market, Paratici and Tottenham will have to make another decision about his future.

Turning 32 in August, Sissoko is another player the club might well consider considering his age and the need to plan for the years ahead.

Since a player’s market value only goes down as their contract expires and they get older, it may be wise to sell sooner rather than later if Tottenham is looking to get a decent fee for the ex-Newcastle man.

Jack Clarke

Clarke is now on half of his Tottenham deal after signing with Leeds United two years ago.

The winger, who has only played three games for Spurs, had to endure frustrating loan periods at Leeds and QPR in 2019-20 before an injury ended his stint at Stoke City.

Clarke is set to return to pre-season training at Hotspur Way next Monday, but his future before the big August kick-off is still unclear.

Another loan switch would be beneficial to his progress and everyone at Tottenham will hope it all clicks into place for him if it does.

Given that he now has two years left to finalize his contract, this season is huge for Clarke as Paratici and Spurs will either have to offer him a new deal next summer or have him move elsewhere on a permanent deal.

And those who could renew their contracts

Son Heung-min

Tottenham fans really want Son to put a new deal on paper at the club.

Mourinho announced back in February that the South Korean’s future was “not a problem” when speaking to the media, with an announcement from the club due sooner rather than later.

Dane Scarlett

Scarlett is considered one of the future at Tottenham after a great breakthrough season in the capital.

In March it was confirmed that the player’s first professional contract with the club after turning 17.

While some Spurs fans have expressed concerns about the short duration of the deal as it only lasts for two years, the reality is that a deal for two extra seasons is the standard procedure for academy students for their first professional deal, which is triggered when they do 17 become.

Spurs will be able to negotiate a longer deal when he turns 18.

Parrott’s season outside of Tottenham may not have gone as everyone initially imagined, but great things are still expected of him in N17.

The striker will return to the club for pre-season but another loan deal would be an asset as he wants to gain even more experience.

The 2023 contract is likely to have an extension to his current contract at some point as it moves forward.
