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 will reportedly reject any permanent offers for Ryan Sessegnon during the next transfer window.

The left-sided player has endured a frustrating first campaign in North London, making just nine starts and three substitute outings in all competitions.

However, despite his lack of game time, the 20-year-old has been linked with a summer move to Spanish giants Barcelona.

According to the Daily Star, club officials have no intention of cashing in on the young Englishman at this present time.

Although there have been previous claims that Sessegnon may be loaned out for a season, the report says that Spurs want to keep the player in the long term.

Sessegnon has not made a first-team appearance since the Champions League defeat at RB Leipzig on March 10.

Chelsea 'see £29.5m Ugurcan Cakir bid accepted'

Chelsea have reportedly had a €33m (£29.5m) bid for Ugurcan Cakir accepted by Trabzonspor.

The 24-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks, with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur both thought to be in the running for his signature.

Last month, a Turkish journalist claimed that Liverpool had made a €25m (£22.5m) offer for the two-time Turkey international, who has made 39 appearances at club level this season.

However, according to Haber365, Chelsea have now had an offer of just shy of £30m accepted by the Super Lig outfit, with the Blues seemingly now in pole position to secure a summer deal for the goalkeeper.

Cakir has only kept four clean sheets in 39 outings for Trabzonspor this term, conceding 46 times in the process, including 11 goals in seven Europa League appearances.

Frank Lampard's side are believed to be in the market for a replacement for number one stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga as the Spaniard continues to struggle for form between the sticks.
