Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with a myriad of potential summer signings but is yet to secure his first addition as White Hart Lane boss and this is down to chairman Daniel Levy insisting the Argentine must sell before he can buy according to the Daily Mirror.

Having forked out over £100m on new players last summer only to see his north London side fall further off the top four pace it’s perhaps understandable that Levy is not keen on funding further forays in the transfer market.

Levy will apparently also demand that those who are exit bound are not sold ‘on the cheap’, which further hampers Pochettino’s plans.

Nine players are said to be available for Tottenham sales this summer, those players bring Lewis Holtby, Emmanuel Adebayor, Sandro, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Michael Dawson, Kyle Naughton, Erik Lamela, Roberto Soldado and Nacer Chadli.

Of those one imagines Spurs will look to make decent sums from the likes of Lamela and Soldado, though clearly not as much as they forked out for the attacking pair last summer.
