Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Tottenham on Monday, July 27.

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.

Monday morning's Tottenham Hotspur transfer talk news roundup:

Jan Vertonghen heading for Tottenham exit after eight years at club

Jan Vertonghen is set to leave Tottenham after his team-mates paid emotional tributes following the final game of the season at Crystal Palace.

The Belgium defender has not been offered a new deal at Spurs and will leave the club after eight years service where he made over 300 appearances and was one of the most reliable centre-backs in the Premier League.

Goalkeeper Michel Vorm is also departing at the end of his one-year contract, with the club set to confirm their exits on Monday.

Midfielder Harry Winks added: "Gonna miss these two. Been a huge part of my career since I came through the academy both on and off the pitch. All the best in your next chapters boys."

Boss Jose Mourinho has been quizzed on Vertonghen's future over the last few weeks, but chose not to comment out of respect for the 33-year-old.

He said on Friday: "I think [he's been] eight years in the club and for me eight months, something like that, it's for Jan to be the man to speak about his future. Not for me."

Vertonghen joined Spurs in 2012 from Ajax and has been an integral part of the side, proving a key player in the successive Premier League title challenges and run to the Champions League final last season.

But he has fallen out of favour this season, first under Mauricio Pochettino as his contract issue rumbled on throughout the summer transfer window, while also playing a minimal role under Mourinho.

He was open to the possibility of staying at north London, but his future now lies elsewhere, having previously spoken about the desire to move to a new country, with Spain and Italy possible destinations.

Tottenham Hotspur 'leading the race for Callum Wilson'

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly at the head of the queue for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

The 28-year-old has scored nine times in 38 appearances for the Cherries this season, including eight goals in 34 Premier League outings.

Eddie Howe's side are facing the prospect of being relegated from the Premier League on Sunday, though, and according to The Sun, the England international could be available for as little as £10m this summer if the club drop into the Championship.

The report claims that Spurs are leading the race for the centre-forward, who is widely expected to leave the Vitality Stadium if Bournemouth are unable to retain their top-flight status.

Jose Mourinho is allegedly keen to sign competition for Harry Kane this summer, with Tottenham struggling for experienced options in the final third of the field.

The Cherries head to Everton on Sunday knowing that they need a win to stand any chance of staying in the Premier League, although Aston Villa and Watford would also have to lose in order for Howe's side to escape the bottom three with a victory.
