Spurs Look To Offload Seven Players From Their Squad
Spurs fans will be getting a little twitchy over their clubs lack of transfer dealings so far this summer and their moods may not be helped by the news that Mauricio Pochettino is open to selling seven of his squad.
The transfer window is a funny place where fans are desperate for news, often any news they can get, but at the same time they dread the news being something they don't want to hear- the wrong player signing, the wrong player leaving, the right player going to the wrong club.
This summer the window is much shorter than usual for Premier League clubs after they decided to end it before the season begins, in an usual act of football Hari Kari if you ask me, and with the World Cup that didn't give them long to do their transfers.
Liverpool have come flying out the traps with all their business, and it would have been even better if they'd signed Nabil Fekir, but others have struggled and will be doing a lot of work in the next two weeks.
One such team is Spurs. Mauricio Pochettino's side haven't signed anyone yet this summer, although Jack Grealish looks likely to join sometime soon, but it's their outgoings that could be very busy soon.
According to the Evening Standard, Spurs could offload upto seven players. Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente are definitely up for grabs, Toby Alderweireld, Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose are all available for the right price and Marcus Edwards and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou are 'surplus to requirements'.
It's no surprise to see Janssen on that list. The striker spent just one season at Spurs before his loan spell with Fenerbahce last season.
Pochettino beat fellow London side Chelsea to the signing of Llorente last summer but he failed to make an impact at Wembley so it's also no surprise to see him leave
The report suggests that the club are hoping to get £30 million for the pair, which considering their troubles in scoring goals seems a bit of a stretch.
Rose and Alderweireld have both previously been thought of as first team players but last season showed that Pochettino could live without them. Manchester United have been linked to both previously but interest has since waned.
Dembele has been linked with a move to Italy and China.
Youngster Marcus Edwards was once described as a young Messi by Pochettino so it's a surprise to see him available for transfer...
