One of the main tasks for any new manager is to tackle the deadwood at their club and at Spurs, this issue has to be addressed on an ongoing basis. Mauricio Pochettino is going to have a busy summer and one of the priorities has to be in attack.

With Jermain Defoe moved on to MLS side Toronto, the club now have Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor as the main front pair with 20 year old Harry Kane providing the back up. Hopefully Kane will be retained but there are suggestions in the press that both Roberto and Ade will be allowed to leave the club when the transfer window opens.

The Evening Standard leads with the story that Soldado will be the first casualty after netting just six times in the league last season. Many are hopeful that the Spaniard would be better adjusted to the Premier League in the next campaign but the new coach may not give him that opportunity.

Roberto has undoubtedly struggled in England but could flourish back in his homeland where Atletico Madrid will be seeking a replacement for Chelsea-bound Diego Costa.

Stories over Adebayor’s future are less widespread but the Standard go on to suggest that Pochettino is lining up Loic Remy and Jay Rodriguez as summer signings. Their arrival would leave little room for the Togolese.

    • Would like to see an upgrade on Rose, who could remain as back up. Thought Paulinho was poor for large parts of the season but is that down to system or was he that bad?. Seems that Mourinho sees something in him so he can’t be all bad. A swap deal with Chelsea for Lukaku would do for me.
      Capoue looked good early on then Injury and Tim both struck, Chadli, again, good in parts, needs a run in the team.
      Don’t want to be too quick to dismiss any of the magnificent 7, or others, but if the offer is right and it helps Poch get the players that he wants and knows will do a job for him them take it

  1. Pochettino may have the five year contract to keep us at best in the europa league as we are not good enough for the cpl. Forget winnjng the title it just wont happen. If in 5 years we have stayed in the top 6 and maybe won a cup and also a bigger stadium then we can kick on to challenge
    Lloris will go he is too good for mediocrity and we will buy Forster. Rose Dawson Adebayor Soldado Lennon Livermore Naughton Townsend Kane are just not top pl players and should be moved on
    Baldini should also and let Mopo buy who he wants
    Could be a good project ut a barren y years!

  2. Again another rubbish story!!! Theres no way ade and soldado will be sold.. and a new combo tried!!! If soldado had service to his feet then he will show the class act he is!!! Rose and lennon cannot provide crosses or balls to feet and should go…townsend for pace would be useful as a sub so we should keep him for now. Remy would be a great addition at a good price.. coys

    • I would love Soldado to stay next season and go on to score 15-20 goals to just prove those big headed Arsenal fans wrong! They have been getting in my nerves about Soldado’s performances this season. I would just live to now go and do what he has done time and time again in Spain, but this time for Spurs
