Tottenham Hotspur transfer news 2022/23: latest confirmed summer signings and departures including Richarlison

The club recently confirmed the signing of Christian Romero, who made his loan deal permanent

Tottenham have enjoyed a good start to the season, and are currently unbeaten after five games, including a 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest with summer signing Djed Spence making his debut.

Unlike Tottenham in previous years, they financially backed Conte, allowing him to make a multitude of signings and also concluded the bulk of their business early on.

Owner Daniel Levy has been criticised in the past for never truly investing in the club, and treating it more like a business. But, with many dealings done in January with Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur coming in for big fees, he’s spent big again.

When did the summer transfer window open?

The summer transfer window for Premier League and English Football League (EFL) clubs, as well as those in the Scottish leagues, opened on Friday, 10 June 2022.

When does the summer transfer window close?

Deadline Day is always dramatic, as clubs scramble to make their team strong as it’s around five months before they can do deals and add to their squad again.

The summer transfer window closed on Thursday, 1 September 2022 at 11pm, and will not reopen until 1 January 2023.

Which players have left Tottenham in the summer transfer window?

Their outgoings have been kept to a minimum, with only four players leaving, and none of them being consistent starters.

Dutch winger Steven Bergwijn returned to his native Holland, going to Dutch champions Ajax for just shy of £30 million. Bergwijn will always be remembered at Spurs for his iconic debut goal against Manchester City.

Cameron Carter-Vickers also departed on a permanent deal, joining Scottish side Celtic. His Spurs career never took off and he’s been on multiple loans throughout his career.

Jack Clarke also left on a permanent deal, joining newly promoted Sunderland in the championship. He spent the season on loan with the Black Cats, and is back for good this time.

And finally, Pierluigi Gollini went back to parent club Atalanta after a forgettable loan spell.

Here are the full transfers and fees received.

  • Steven Bergwijn, Ajax, £28 million
  • Cameron Carter-Vickers, Celtic, £6 million
  • Jack Clarke, Sunderland, Undisclosed fee
  • Pierluigi Gollini, Atalanta, End of loan

Who has joined Tottenham so far in the summer window?

As said, Tottenham rarely make this many signings, and fans can be excited at the sheer abundance of talent brought into the club.

They signed Richarlison from Everton for just over £50 million, making him - and by some distance - their most expensive signing this summer.

They also purchased Yves Bissouma from Brighton, in a deal that went under the radar, costing the club just north of £25 million.

Djed Spence, a highly rated young English right back was brought in from Middlesbrough, after a very impressive loan spell with Nottingham Forest.

Experienced wingback Ivan Perisic was signed on a free from Inter Milan, a player that will be familiar with Conte after the two romped home to a Serie A title in 2021.

Fraser Forster was also signed from Southampton, as a backup and possible cup goalkeeper too.

And the final incoming was that of Clement Lenglet, the Frenchman joining on a season long loan from Barcelona.

Here’s the full list of incomings, and the fee (if applicable) spent.

  • Richarlison, Everton, £52 million
  • Yves Bissouma, Brighton, £26 million
  • Djed Spence, Middlesbrough, £13 million
  • Ivan Perisic, Inter Milan, Free
  • Fraser Forster, Southampton, Free
  • Clement Lenglet, Barcelona, Loan
  • Christian Romero - Atalanta - £45 million
  • Destiny Udogie - Udinese - £16 million
