Tottenham Hotspur may find themselves with a decision or two to make come the January transfer window, as a number of first-team players tick towards a free transfer.

Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, and Christian Eriksen all have around six months left on their current Spurs contracts, meaning they can talk to non-English clubs in the new year.

All three were regulars during Mauricio Pochettino’s reign at the club, while the Belgian defenders are still first-choice under Jose Mourinho.

Recent reports indicated that Manchester United, a top-four rival for Spurs, are interested in signing Christian Eriksen from their fellow English side (El Desmarque).

Spurs have not made a habit of selling big players to rivals in the recent past, with Kyle Walker being the only exception since the days of Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov, and Michael Carrick.

Daniel Levy has now come out and told the Evening Standard that Tottenham are not scared to trade with Premier League rivals.
