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.
