That was one spot higher than former Spurs striker Harry Kane managed with Bayern Munich.

Ito has 17 caps and his release clause is believed to be between £21.5million and £25m.

Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou boasts a good knowledge of the Japanese market having bossed Yokohama F Marinos between 2018-2021 and wants another centre-back this summer.

But SunSport understands the North Londoners will prioritise other positions, like a striker.

Spurs released centre-backs Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga yesterday.

Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon have also left the club.

Reports claim Tottenham are willing to sell up to 11 players this summer.

The Lilywhites are allegedly willing to let £60m man Richarlison leave as part of a mass exodus.
