To how many?

Gomes, Tielemens, and Lo Celso wouldn't be considered homegrown yet we're linked with them. It's almost like the transfer rumors are more believable if we are linked with players that play in England.
risk and reward, one of the risks are that a player may not acclimatise to a league - Gomes is cheap / Tielemens is from outside of the country and the added bonus we see he can do it in the league and Lo Celso is from outside the league.

The BBC have their crystal ball out.

It's going to be a summer of significant change at Tottenham, regardless of what happens in the Champions League final.

They're looking at players who haven't quite made it elsewhere - think Lucas Moura when he was out of favour at PSG, Malcom now at Barcelona - and at players who are not the finished article.

Spurs are fond of Ryan Sessegnon and the feeling is mutual. He would have stayed at Fulham if they had stayed up, but now they're resigned to his exit. They can't afford to lose Sessegnon for nothing next summer - if he went abroad they'd only get half a million pounds in compensation and if it was a Premier League club it would go to a tribunal.

Tottenham are yet to make an offer but the sense is that a bid is incoming and it would then be down to the clubs to agree a fee. They envisage Sessegnon initially playing on the left wing before dropping to left-back long term.

There has also been strong interest in Sessegnon from Manchester United, PSG, Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. Chelsea, too, but their transfer ban and the West London rivalry rules that out.
The 18-year-old wants his future sorted before the Under-21 European Championships, which start on 16 June, but Tottenham's participation in the Champions League could delay matters.

Meanwhile, there is a very good chance Christian Eriksen will be sold this summer. With the Dane seemingly unwilling to extend his contract, Spurs will want to avoid losing him on a free transfer next year. There is a slight possibility that he could pen a new deal, with a clause inserted that would allow him to join a leading club like Real Madrid or Barcelona if they made an approach.

Previously, Tottenham have pursued Aston Villa's Jack Grealish and Zaha. Grealish is expected to leave Villa if they miss out on promotion from the Championship, while Zaha can be signed at the right price.
Further back in midfield, Spurs would like to move on Victor Wanyama and possibly Eric Dier.

Centre-back Toby Alderweireld has a year left on his contact and a £25m release clause, so if the Belgian is sold he will need to be replaced. Jan Vertonghen is also going into the final year of his current deal.

Tottenham need a back-up striker as well. Given Fernando Llorente's role in their run to the Champions League final, that could yet be him. But the Spaniard is now 34, so clearly they may look elsewhere.
 
A couple of days ago L'equip wrote that Real would announce Hazard after the Euro League final. Usually a reliable source. They believe the price to be around £87m
If they lose Hazard, and without any signings, they’re already done next season. Here’s hoping.

Whilst they are allowed to sell, they would be mad to do it.

Letting hazard go for free next summer would be just as mad in Roman’s eyes. Though from a football perspective I agree with you.
