Mauricio Pochettino plots massive White Hart Lane clear-out.
It perhaps says a great deal about the sheer size of the squad available to Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino that the Argentine is willing to consider offers for an entire XI this summer.
The Times claims that the Argentine manager is keen to trim the numbers in his armoury and has outlined 11 players he will listen to offers for.
Such a move serves two purposes. Firstly it helps to reduce the club’s wage bill but also helps to beef up funds he can use to bring in new additions so as to put his own stamp on the side he inherited from Tim Sherwood, who in turn inherited from Andre Villas-Boas.
Among those available are no less than four players who arrived during Villas-Boas’s mad spending spree following Gareth Bale’s move to Real Madrid.
Pochettino would hope to garner a decent fee for faltering striker Roberto Soldado, who managed just goals from open play in Premier League action last term, and is also ready to offload Nacer Chadli, Vlad Chiriches and Etienne Capoue.
Full-backs Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Kyle Naughton appear likely to leave, not least as Ben Davies looks set to be handed the first team spot at left-back.
Wingers Aaron Lennon and Andros Townsend were both woefully inconsistent last season and Pochettino will look to find buyers for either, with QPR said to be keen on the latter.
Centre-Back Micheal Dawson also looks to be on his way out, though his planned move to Hull City fell through last month.
Neither Sandro nor Moussa Dembele performed to the best of their abilities in 2013/14 and are also on this extensive list of potential outgoing stars.
