Pochettino has told the media that he expects players to leave before the August 31 European transfer deadline.

The Premier League transfer window shut before the start of the season, but outgoings can still occur as the rest of Europe stay open for business until the end of the month.

Sagas involving Alderweireld, Rose and Dembele have rumbled through the summer, and now Pochettino has said that he expects players to leave in the next two weeks.

“Maybe, yes, we are going to see if some players believe that they can achieve their goals in another club. Maybe they are going to move. Different individual things can happen in the next few weeks.

“If some player is not happy because he needs to play or believes he can play more at another team, or needs to change the environment, or needs a new challenge or motivation, I told them that I am open to find the solution.

“I want people who feel happy to be involved here every day, happy to be in the place that the manager, who is the boss, puts you, and I think that is the only way to success.

“If we are 25 players, 40 or 50 staff, fans, board altogether, working for the same objective, which is to win games. That is why I am so open to fix problems. I don’t want anyone upset or unhappy, or with negative feelings here.

“It is so clear the rules. It is so clear my message. I promise I am going to fix it if someone is not happy to be here for the next five months until the transfer window opens again. All people here need to feel they can be part of the team, and help the team any time the manager commands.”

Pochettino clearly believes that his faith in youth players will safely fill the gaps of those who decide to take the exit doors.

The likes of Kyle Walker-Peters, Luke Amos, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Oliver Skipp are all likely to play key parts before the campaign is over.

“I’m so happy with our young players who won the ICC tournament. Of course, I laugh a little bit but we played with 17 or 18-year-old midfielders.

“Why not show them trust and that there’s a possibility of getting to the first team, maybe not for now, but in a few months or to prepare them for next season?”

Should such faith in young talent over big names be applauded?

And who could we see leaving the club in the next fortnight? Alderweireld to Bayern? Rose to PSG? Foyth to Leeds? GK out on loan?
