Tottenham Hotspur have missed the window to bring new players in, but they can still sell people up until September 2, with the window still open across Europe.
That leaves Spurs over a week to cash in on some of the players Pochettino does not plan on using this season.
I would also hope that this would free up further funds in January and next summer to invest heavily in the squad once again.
Here are the four players I would still be looking to sell this window and how much I would be looking for.
Victor Wanyama –
Once a fantastic servant of the club, Vic has been hampered by injuries in recent years and has now fallen down the pecking order. He is far too good a player to sit in the reserves, so for the sake of the club and Wanyama himself, a sale makes sense.
A report by the Evening Standard suggests that Spurs are looking for £17m for the player, which I think is a bit unrealistic.
Price – £12m.
Georges-Kevin Nkoudou –
His career in North London never really got started, but it’s about time it came to an end. After two unsuccessful loan spells and three years without regular first-team football under Pochettino, it’s just a matter of getting him out the door. L’Equipe report that Spurs have agreed a £4m fee with Besiktas and I think that sounds more than fair.
Price – £4m.
Marcus Edwards –
Recent reports have suggested that Edwards wants out of the club and I would be happy to let him go (Football Insider). Pochettino clearly does not see him as a player he wants to use this season, after leaving him out of the Asia and Germany squads. There are plenty of other academy talents coming through and if Edwards doesn’t have the determination and work ethic needed, Spurs should cash in.
Price – £5m.
Serge Aurier –
The Daily Mail have reported that Serge Aurier wants to leave Tottenham this summer. Now, this one would come with a condition. I get the impression that Pochettino sees Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth as his two main right-backs this season. If that is true, and Poch does not plan to use Aurier too often, then I would cash in now to get the best value out of him.
Price – £20m.
Total money earned – £41m
