Despite becoming the first side in transfer window history to not add to their squad and even with the drama surrounding the delay in the opening of the new stadium, Spurs have managed to win 15 of their first 19 games and find themselves very much in the title race.

It is thus imperative that Tottenham add reinforcements to the squad in January as an astute signing could end up being the difference between 1st and 2nd spot. However, as publicized in the summer, Tottenham’s squad is already too big in numbers and barely fulfills the minimum homegrown quota.

This was talked about as one of the potential reasons Tottenham couldn’t add to their squad in the summer as they didn’t manage to find buyers for the players who were deemed surplus to requirements at the club and therefore failed to free up enough squad places.

If a Daily Mail report is to be believed, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has learned his lesson and is looking to offload as many a six players worth an estimated total of £75 million.

The report claims Pochettino is willing to let go of the likes of Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Michel Vorm, Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen.

While Dembele and Wanyama have been struggling with injuries, Vorm, Janssen, and Nkoudou are unlikely to feature again for the Lillywhites.

It is unlikely that Spurs will manage to sell all six players in January but Spurs fans might be hoping that the club’s desperation to sell players is a sign that they wish to add new signings to the squad.
