According to various reports from media outlets, Spurs are running on a tight budget this summer after failing to qualify for even the Europa League tournament, let alone they were targeting to get into the Champions League.
With cash strain and the need to rebuild under the new manager Nuno Espirito, Spurs are looking to offload a lot of players who are out of favour, running into their late period of the contract, and those wishing to get away from the North London club.
The Players That Could Be Sold In This Summer
Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Eric Dier, Harry Winks, Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld and according to a report from The Athletic, even Lucas Mora could be sold if the right offer arrives for the French man.
Spurs are definitely under financial constraints due to the massive match ticket losses, new stadium-related payments, the money they are losing due to their absence in the Champions League and now Europa League as well as the massive wage bills. This has brought the management into thinking about the brewing situation and after consultation with the new manager and new director of football, the 7 players have been identified to be sold so that the club can generate adequate funds for the new additions and their accommodation into the wage bill.
Spurs are looking to first strengthen their backline and are already trying to work on a deal with Aston Villa for Ezri Konsa, many other defenders are also shortlisted by the club. Spurs are even interested in Houssem Aouar and Danny Ings lately. But for any such deals to go through it would mean that Spurs have to first sell their players for which the management has already started the work. It will be interesting to watch how the management tries to offload these players who have massive wages on their names in this financially difficult time for clubs around the World.
