According to a report by Football.London, despite having already managed to secure the services of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty, Tottenham Hotspur are far from done in the transfer window this summer.

It is revealed that Jose Mourinho still wants to make more additions before the window shuts but that the Lilywhites will have to sell some players first in order to raise funds for their targets.

It is claimed that the North Londoners are ready to sell Danny Rose, Serge Aurier, Juan Foyth, Tanguy Ndombele and Erik Lamela should they receive suitable offers.

It is said that the club want to complete a deal for Rose as quickly as possible, while they are ready to accept around £20million for Aurier amid interest from AC Milan, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco.

The report suggests that Spurs could decide to sell Foyth rather than allow him to leave on loan since the defender only has two years left on his contract but the situation is said to be much more complex with both Ndombele and Lamela.

It is asserted that Spurs do not want to sell Ndombele as things stand but their stance might well change late in the window depending on the transfer opportunities that open up.

Meanwhile, it is revealed that Mourinho is an admirer of Lamela and would prefer to hang on to him. However, if Spurs receive a sensible bid for the Argentine, the club will have a difficult decision on their hands.

The report also adds that the Lilywhites could cash in on Cameron Carter-Vickers with the defender who impressed on loan at Luton in the second half of last season has only a year left on his contract.

If we sell four of the five players mentioned above (with Ndombele being one of them), we could raise £70-£80 million this summer, which would leave us with plenty of funds to potentially pull off a surprise big-money move late in the window. Given the rumours about our attempts to sign Zaniolo and Van de Beek, I would not rule out another late Dybala-esque attempt by Levy this summer too.
