Ben Davies and Mousa Sissoko are the only two injury concerns in the current squad. The former is set on course for recovery during the pre-season after successfully undergoing surgery for his Hernia. It was report that Davies was out with a groin injury and has finally gone under the knife to expedite his fitness.
Davies had to undergo surgery earlier but he choose to delay the procedure in order to make the Wales squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers squad against Croatia and Hungary. The delay was likely caused due to his designated surgeon falling ill on the previously decided day of the surgery. Ryan Giggs clearly stated that Davies didn’t intentionally delayed the procedure:
“The surgeon fell ill so the operation was put back and then Ben wanted to be involved in both games so he’s now available.”

Here’s Ben Davies updating about his surgery on Instagram:
Though there’s not concrete date set for a return, he should partake a bit in pre-season and be fit in time by the time the new season starts against Aston Villa. The Welsh international joined Spurs from Swansea in 2014 and was a spectator from the bench as Spurs lost the Champions League final to Liverpool.
Danny Rose has taken the mantle for the left-back position and Davis is clearly Pochettino’s second choice. Spurs have also recently been linked with Ryan Sessegnon, who can also play at left-back. However, there’s no indication that the veteran of five seasons has any intention of leaving the club this summer.
