Tottenham Hotspur have made a swift start to the transfer window managing to make three solid additions in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty.
Reports indicate that the Lilywhites are targeting three more additions before the transfer window shuts, with a striker, a centre-back and another winger on the club’s radar (Fabrizio Romano on the Last Word On Spurs).
However, The Evening Standard have now revealed that the North Londoners will have to shift out some deadwood before they can make further signings.
The report reveals that the club need to raise funds through player sales and were hoping to do so by cashing in on Serge Aurier.
However, AC Milan have reportedly cooled their interest in the right-back, while Bayer Leverkusen are not said to have come anywhere close to meeting Tottenham’s £23 million valuation for the Ivorian.
While the report asserts that Juan Foyth is available for sale with the Lilywhites are also open to listening to offers for Paulo Gazzaniga.
Spurs Web Opinion
Having already dipped into the transfer market already, Tottenham cannot afford to get into a situation towards the end of the window where clubs know that the Lilywhites will have to sell several fringe players. To get maximum value for the likes of Aurier and Foyth, it would make sense to sell them now rather than to do so after we bring more players in. Besides, our issues with the homegrown rule means that some more spots have to be freed up if we want to sign other rumoured targets.
