The Evening Standard have claimed that Tottenham could look to offload as many as ten first-team players as part of their rebuild this summer.
While all the focus over recent months has been on the kind of signings Spurs are expected to make, The Evening Standard explain that Fabio Paratici is aware that offloading deadwood will be just as important.
The report states that Spurs are confident of selling Steven Bergwijn for a significant fee but moving other players on will not be as simple.
Harry Winks is expected to push for a move but it is said that the midfielder will want to join a club where he has a chance of reviving his England career.
Spurs also allegedly wish to offload Davinson Sanchez, Emerson Royal, Sergio Reguilon and Joe Rodon but the North London club reportedly do not expect to recoup the fees they paid for those four players.
The Evening Standard add that Giovani Lo Celso is expected to attract plenty of interest but Tanguy Ndombele could prove a lot more difficult to shift than the Argentine.
Finally, the report claims that Spurs are also willing to listen to offers for both Lucas Moura and Matt Doherty but it is alleged that both players enjoy playing for Spurs.

With Emerson and Bergwijn looking certain to depart, I suspect Conte will keep Doherty and Moura around as squad players for next season. However, the club’s plans could change if they receive a decent offer for either of them.
I just worry that it could backfire on us if we try and complete a major rebuild in just one window. We have seen in the past how clubs who sell five or six players and bring another five in during the same window, struggle at the start of the season and often take time to gel as a squad.
