Mauricio Pochettino wants Daniel Levy to waste no time in allowing unwanted players to leave the club this summer according to The London Evening Standard.
Following our 5-4 win over Leicester in our final Premier League game at Wembley yesterday, Pochettino called for Levy to “be brave and take risks” to help the club to win major honours.
The article says Pochettino will have talks with his chairman this week, when he will ask Levy to release the financial shackles on the club and urge him not to play hardball in negotiations to sell Toby Alderweireld, Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose.
The article adds that the trio are available to leave this summer and Pochettino, who has repeatedly urged the club not to leave signings until the final week of the transfer window, would like them to be sold quickly to allow the club to buy replacements.
The article adds how Levy is a notoriously tough negotiator but Pochettino believes our best hope of closing the gap to runaway champions Manchester City is to complete the majority of our transfer business before the World Cup — which starts in exactly a month.
Meanwhile young defender Kyle Walker-Peters, who made only his second League start of the campaign against Leicester, has signed a new contract with the club until 2021. The 21-year-old was named man of the match on both the opening day of the season and after the final game, having laid on two assists against Leicester on Sunday.
