Mauricio Pochettino has said that Tottenham need to undergo a painful rebuild in the summer (Evening Standard) which indicates that there could be significant changes to the playing squad.
One player who has been linked with a move away from the club is defender Toby Alderweireld. There is a clause in the Belgian’s contract that would allow him to leave for just £25 million if a bid is received before the last two weeks of the window closing (The Guardian).
Additionally, Spurs are also reportedly looking to make wholesale changes at fullback with the club said to be keen on bringing in Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Evening Standard) and Norwich City’s Max Aarons (The Sun), while being open to letting Kieran Trippier leave.
Calcio Mercato report that Tottenham have offered Alderweireld to Juventus while Trippier’s agent has also held discussions regarging the right-back going to Turin in the summer.
The Serie A champions, who have already completed the signing of Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal, are said to be considering both options.
Additionally, the report further claims that some problems have emerged in negotiations between Trippier’s representatives and Napoli with Juventus looking take advantage of the situation.

It will certainly be sad to see Toby go but nobody can accuse the 30-year-old of not giving his all and being completely invested in the team during his time at the club.
With regards to Trippier, a move to Italy could work out for him as he certainly looks like he needs a fresh start.
Tottenham need a dynamic full back who can get up and down the pitch the whole game, and Wan-Bissaka would be a perfect fit for Pochettino’s system.
