The summer brings two things in the UK, false hopes of some actual warm weather and the football transfer silly season.
Already we have witnessed a whole host of players linked with a move to Tottenham, but instead we’re focusing on what players should move on to pastures new ahead of the season kicking off in August.
The Cameroon international moved to Spurs in August 2015 on a five-year-deal for a fee in the region of £8.2million but failed to make an impact at the club. Fans were hoping that his natural pace would add another dimension to our attack, but after just eight Premier League appearances he was shipped off to Marseille.
Speculation suggests that Spurs are now ready to offload N’Jie on a permanent basis.
What can we say about Sissoko what already hasn’t been said? A club-record £30million fee and what have we had in return? The French international has made absolutely no positive impact and has been mostly resigned to fleeting substitute appearances.
The sooner we can offload and try to recoup some of the transfer fee, the better. The biggest flop we’ve had in our history?
Another player with bags of pace, but haven’t really seen anything substantial from him to think that he can become a regular first-teamer. Granted, he adds pace to the side but I can’t say that he is going to become anything more than that at Tottenham. As for the fact he wore a Chelsea shirt, that’s surely enough reason to get him out of the door.
Best for the player to move on and get regular first-team football.
The big Austrian was a solid performer when he filled in for Jan Vertonghen a couple of seasons ago, but has seen little action since. Mauricio Pochettino has preferred to drop Eric Dier back into the heart of defence on occasions rather than use Wimmer.
Another player who it is in his best interests to depart to make the most of his playing time.
Ok, so we’re not saying that Tottenham should sell Onomah but he needs to go out on loan. We’ve seen glimpses of what he could be capable of during England Under-20’s World Cup winning campaign but very little in a Spurs shirt.
He needs to grow as a player and the only way he can do that is by playing week in, week out. So with this in mind, a season-long loan spell to another Premier League club will at least help decide on whether he can make the grade at Tottenham.
Do you agree with us? What players do you think should Spurs sell this summer? Have your say below.
