Five players Spurs must sell this summer to help reach to the next level

Mauricio Pochettino has spoken about his desire to take Tottenham Hotspur to the next level and after he signed a new five-year deal contract extension, we’ve been thinking about which players need to move on in the summer.

You would have to assume that Poch has had assurances from chairman Daniel Levy that he is prepared to back the manager in the summer transfer window, despite the fact we are spending in excess of £850million on a new stadium.

Below, we have highlighted five players that need to be shipped out of Spurs in order for us to bring some world class players in to complement what we already have and try and compete with the likes of Manchester City.

1. Moussa Sissoko

The Frenchman was always going to be first on our list for the exit. A £30million signing from Newcastle in 2016, he has failed to make the mark at Tottenham and with wages rumoured to be around £95,000-a-week, he must be sold at a considerable loss this summer.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Add Aurier to that list. It looks too like Dembele will move on and hopefully generate a good fee. We’ll miss him greatly, when at his best, but his best has become more infrequent. Let’s ensure we replace him with a different type of player (because we won’t find another Dembele) – ie a deep lying playmaker this time. Still not sure about Wanyama or even whether that type of enforcer, who can crunch tackle but can’t distribute the ball well, is actually needed. Dier is our best all-round DM, and Winks has the potential to cover for him or Dembele, but let’s source another DM similar to Dier, as well that person who can pull the strings in deep midfield.

  2. Fantastic to see Mr Pochettino and crew extend their contracts. Important to continue the success for the future with talented young players. Seems to be possible to have a summer wish list, I ll keep it short : Matthis de Ligt (Ajax) as succesor to the excellent Jan Vertongen. Francisco Alarcon “Isco” (RM) adds creativity. Julian Weigl (B Dortmund) def. midfileder. Wilfried Saha,(CPalace) speed in attack. If Possible Sessegnon (Fulham). Promote Reo Griffiths. Make an offer to Riqui Puig (Barca). Carlos Abad (Tenerife) for Vorm.
    Sell if possible: Onomah, Janssen,Nkoudou, Sissoko,LLorente,Dembele, Alderweireld, Wanyama,Rose, Vorm.
