Tottenham Hotspur have already mixed their squad up a bit this transfer window by bringing in two new stars last week.

Jack Clarke signed from Leeds United for £10m before being loaned straight back out to the Championship side for the 2019/20 season (BBC).

Tanguy Ndombele followed just hours later, transferring from Lyon for a club record fee of £53.8m, which could rise to £62.8m after add-ons (BBC).

However, Spurs will likely have to sell a few players if they are to fund any more big money moves this summer.

The Sun previously reported that Tottenham would be listening to offers for twelve first team stars this summer, despite the fact that none have been sold as of yet.

The list included the likes of Kieran Trippier, Victor Wanyama, and Danny Rose as potential outgoings this transfer window.

However, ex-Tottenham full-back Pascal Chimbonda believes that none of these three will be sold any time soon, with Trippier able to reach the heights of the World Cup again, Wanyama to be like a new signing, and Rose able to teach Sessegnon the ropes.

He said (SportingBet – as quoted by the Express): “Tripper won’t be sold this window and will remain Tottenham’s first-choice right-back.

“He clearly struggled last season, but he will be a completely new player now he’s had a summer to rest without any international tournaments.

“With [Serge] Aurier being injured throughout the season, it didn’t give Tripper a chance to rest when he needed it most.

“He’s proven he can play at the top level and you don’t lose that overnight. I expect we’ll see Tripper back to his best next season.

“Wanyama will be like a new signing for Tottenham next season. He managed to stay injury free towards the end of the season and played some much needed first-team football.

“He was a little rusty, but he can now kick on and start the season fresh. It’s important that he doesn’t push himself too hard as he needs to stay fit for the whole season to really get back on track.

“If he can do that, then he could be a vital player next season.”

“Pochettino can unlock Sessegnon’s full potential and would be a great signing for Tottenham.

“It’s unfair to judge him on last season’s performance as he was played in various positions in a team where everyone struggled to find their feet.

“He’s still very young and needs the guidance to fulfil his potential. Pochettino can offer him that as well as Danny Rose. I think Rose would be an excellent player for Sessegnon to learn from and it would give him some healthy competition.

“They are very similar in terms of both being attackingly strong, but Rose can improve Sessegnon’s defensive capabilities.”
