Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to invest in their squad this summer, but they may first need to clear out some of the deadwood.
One prime example of this could be £17m striker Vincent Janssen, who has rarely featured under Pochettino over the past two years (BBC).
Janssen signed for Spurs back in 2016 as a promising 22-year-old striker, coming off the back of scoring a whopping 31 goals in 49 games for AZ Alkmaar in the Eredivisie.
Janssen made 38 appearances for Spurs in his first season at the club, but only registered six goals in that time.
Since the 2016/17 season, Janssen has suffered with regular injuries, was frozen out by Poch, and was even sent out on loan to Fenerbahce.
In the past two seasons, Janssen only registered four appearances for Spurs in all competitions, with no goals in that time.
However, The Sun now report that, after trying and failing to sign him on loan in January, Schalke are not preparing a bid for the Dutch forward.
The report adds that clubs in Belgium and China have also expressed an interest in the striker, who has just 12 months left on his contract.
