North London side look to offload deadwood.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will look to trim his expansive squad ahead of further moves in the summer transfer market and according to the Daily Telegraph the Argentine has already earmarked five such players he is prepared to cash-in on.
The White Hart Lane manager has already successfully acquired Swansea City pair Michel Vorm and Ben Davies as well as Sporting Lisbon youngster Eric Dier, with Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson moving to the Liberty Stadium.
The north London side have secured £12m from further sales of Jake Livermore and Iago Falque to Hull City and Genoa but it’s evident others will be heading for the exit.
The Belgian international powerhouse is one of a number of midfielders Pochettino is ready to offload and may be a player who’s sale could garner a decent sum.
Tottenham signed the 27 year old from Fulham in August 2012 in a £15m deal and one would imagine chairman Daniel Levy would demand a fee of at least £10m for the rangy midfielder.
