Archie Gray, Oliver Skipp, Joe Rodon and the Tottenham and Leeds transfer triangle

Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United are casting an eye over a number of each others' players this summer with potential moves in mind, understands.

Spurs' transfer window is yet to kick into gear with only Timo Werner signed on another loan for a second season and Lucas Bergvall arriving next week following his £8.5million February move from Djurgarden as the north London club's only bits of action so far in a quiet window so far for much of the Premier League.

Leeds missed out on promotion to the Premier League despite a season in which they earned 90 points in the Championship, only to lose in the play-off final to Southampton. Missing out on the Premier League and the riches it brings is expected to leave Leeds needing to bring in plenty of income with a reported £190million in outstanding transfer fees owed and one of the Championship's highest wage bills, while boss Daniel Farke will also need to bring in new signings this summer.

Both Tottenham and Leeds are understood to be looking at each other's squads with envious eyes towards a couple of their players. has previously reported that Spurs have a strong interest in Archie Gray, Leeds' gifted 18-year-old academy product who played 50 matches for them last season. Unfortunately for the north London side, most of the top clubs in the Premier League are tracking him closely as well as other sides in Europe.

A midfielder by trade, Gray shone as a right-back last season for the Championship club, which would mark him out as a perfect inverted full-back within Ange Postecoglou's system at Tottenham. The teenager's form was one of the reasons for Djed Spence being unable to claim that right-back spot in the Leeds side during the first half of last season, before the Spurs right-back returned and was loaned out again to Genoa.

Leeds would be loathe to lose such a popular player with the fans, one some are labelling a generational talent and Gray could well want to stay at his boyhood club for a few years more as he is still so young. If he did decide to move he would have his pick of clubs and there is, according to various reports, anywhere between a £30milion and £50million price tag on the talented teenager. Those financial woes with the cost of missing out on promotion will require some big exits and a revamp of Farke's squad. Most of all, Gray would want regular football if he were to depart.

Among others, Crysencio Summerville has also been linked with a move away from Leeds this summer after a season on the left wing at Elland Road that brought 21 goals and 10 assists under Farke. Tottenham and Liverpool have both been among the clubs linked with the 22-year-old Dutchman. Another potential departure from Leeds is 20-year-old Wilfried Gnonto, who has been linked with Spurs and various clubs in the past.

Leeds are looking in the other direction at Tottenham as well. Should Gray depart this summer, or perhaps even if he doesn't, understands that Farke would be keen for a reunion with Oliver Skipp. The 23-year-old starred under the German in the 20/21 season as an ever-present in the Norwich midfield that won the Championship.

Skipp has now made 106 appearances for Tottenham's first team but is keen to get regular football next season after his 21 matches last season brought just seven starts, with five in the Premier League.

Leeds are expected to look at Skipp in terms of both a permanent or loan move - depending on their financial situation. The lure of playing for Farke again would be appealing for the young midfielder, although it's likely that a string of Premier League clubs would also enter the equation if Tottenham decide to let the player go and that's likely the level he would expect to be playing at.

The problem for Spurs and the player is that Skipp is a rare commodity within their squad: a senior club-trained homegrown player, which is helpful for their Europa League squad registration. With three years left on his contract and 77 Premier League appearances to his name at his age, he is not going to come cheaply for anyone looking for a permanent transfer, which will not help Leeds in their current situation and a Premier League move would seem more likely.

Another player Leeds would love to reunite with Farke, albeit a quicker reunion, would be Joe Rodon. The 26-year-old Wales international was a near ever-present for the German last season, playing 50 matches, and was one of the Yorkshire side's top performers in the Championship. understands that Leeds remain in the hunt for Rodon, with the two teams that won automatic promotion to the Premier League last season, Ipswich and Leicester, also showing the most interest.

The Foxes now have Rodon's former Swansea boss Steve Cooper in charge but also face a potential big points deduction for breaching profit and sustainability rules. Further clubs could yet enter the mix for the Welshman, who has 12 months left on his contract, with Southampton among others having previously shown interest.

The summer ahead will show whether Tottenham and Leeds end up doing business aplenty together or nothing at all.
