Pochettino will have to sell before buying someone
Tottenham are ready to sell a number of players who aren’t included in the plans of head coach Mauricio Pochettino, in order to secure a quality reinforcement for the second half of the season.
Pochettino didn’t receive a single rookie last summer, but that didn’t prevent the Spurs from starting the season in an impressive way. This became possible also due to the great depth of the composition.
Nevertheless, even now, in the most intense period of the season, Tottenham have players who, for various reasons, receive almost no practice and who Pochettino can safely sell.
As the Daily Mail calculated, the Spurs could gain more than £75 million in January through the sale of Michel Worm, Moussa Dembele, Victor Wanyama, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente.
In place of this ballast, Mauricio is going to invite players who will be useful for Tottenham. However, the Argentine immediately warns not to place high hopes on January’s transfer window.
