Tottenham look to offload six as Mauricio Pochettino seeks to continue summer clear-out

Posted by

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will look to offload six more under-performing first-team stars this summer according to the London Evening Standard.

Pochettino saw his White Hart Lane side struggle for consistency in 2014/15, leading to the North London side’s failure to secure a top four finish, and the Argentine has already removed a fair bit of deadwood from his Spurs squad.

Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Younes Kaboul, Lewis Holtby and Benjamin Stambouli have been sold to Guangzhou Evergrande, Watford, Sunderland, Hamburg and PSG respectively.

Tottenham will hope to find buyers for off-form forwards Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor with the pair managing just three Premier League goals between them in 2014/15.

Borussia Dortmund have been linked with Soldado (via the Daily Express) whilst Aston Villa are said to see Adebayor as a replacement for Liverpool bound forward Christian Benteke (via the Daily Mail).

Pochettino will also look to sell winger Aaron Lennon, who spent time out on loan at Everton last season, and England international Andros Townsend.

Townsend’s form at national team level has been vastly superior to the performances he has managed for Tottenham and both Newcastle United and West Ham are said to be keen on the 23-year-old (via the Daily Express).

Finally the London Evening Standard claim the Argentine manager is keen to sell defensive pair Vlad Chiriches and Federico Fazio, with neither player proving all that dependable at the back.

Totteham conceded more goals than any side in the top-half of the Premier League in 2014/15 and Pochettino has already moved to address his side’s defensive weaknesses by signing Belgian international Toby Alderweireld and young full-back Kieran Trippier.
