Mauricio Pochettino is hoping to freshen up his Tottenham squad in the January transfer window by selling five of his senior players.
The quintet that Spurs will listen to offers for are Danny Rose, Serge Aurier, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Christian Eriksen, whose Tottenham contract expires in June.
Rose was reportedly close to joining Watford earlier in the summer and has made it clear that he wants a move back up North, whilst Aurier and Wanyama both know their futures lie away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and came close to joining PSG and Club Brugge respectively in the previous window.
As for Eriksen, Spurs will look to cash-in on the Danish midfielder or risk losing the 27-year-old on a free transfer when his current Tottenham deal runs out next summer.
Dier has two-years left on his contract, but has fallen out of favour under Pochettino, although the England midfielder, who was left out Gareth Southgate’s squad for their upcoming games against Czech Republic and Bulgaria, was handed his first league start of the season in the 3-0 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.
It means that, all of those five have featured in the Premier League for Spurs this season – with Rose and Eriksen both regulars in Pochettino’s strongest line-up. However, The Times are reporting that Argentine is keen to diminish the negative atmosphere around the club which has led to his side winning just three of their 11 matches in all competitions this season.
