Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino warned last season that the club might need to undergo a painful rebuild this summer (Evening Standard) and if reports are to be believed that exactly how things are turning out at (Marca).

The club announced on Monday that they had shattered their transfer record to secure the services of Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele, while Jack Clarke also arrived from Leeds United.

Reports indicate that more players are likely to follow the pair through the door over the next few weeks.

The Daily Star claim that the club plans to finance the rest of their summer spending potentially selling three of their first team stars – Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama.

While the Belgian has a release clause of £25 million in his contract, both Wanyama and Dier played very few games due to respective injury troubles last season.

Besides these players, Christian Eriksen has also been linked with a move to Real Madrid all summer.

Spurs Web Opinion 

While it might be time to cut our losses with Wanyama, it is unlikely that Pochettino will let Dier go given his reversibility. We hope that the club hangs on to Alderweireld too for another season and focuses on improving other areas of the squad this summer.

  1. £25M for Toby is not going to fund much, lets try and keep him for another season at least. Wanyama, Tripper, Dier, Erkisen and Lamela are all surplus to requirments as far as I am concerned (Eriksen, good player but wants “another project”) That would raise around £200M to bring in Lo Celso, Cabellos, Sess, Arrons, we will be good to go for next season and a number of the deadwood would be out,
    First XI for next season – Lloris, Aarons, Sess/Rose, Toby, Jan, – Ndembele, Winks /Sissoko – Son/Moura, Dele, Locelso, Kane – COYS!!!!
