To conclude our ‘who needs to go’ week here in the Football Transfer Tavern, the landlord and punters are this evening concentrating on Tottenham Hotspur and the deadwood that needs to be cleared in order to make way for fresh faces.
Spurs have already began their summer spending of course, bringing in FC Koln’s Austrian international centre back Kevin Wimmer while a deal for Burnley’s impressive right back Kieran Trippier also looks moments from completion.
While Tottenham fans will be delighted to see Mauricio Pochettino strengthening his defence so quickly, they know that the rebuilding job doesn’t stop there and would like their Argentine boss to add a top striker this summer, not to mention another midfielder and possibly another centre back.
It will again prove tough for Tottenham to break into the top four again in 2015/16 with competition harder than ever before to qualify for the Champions League.
Despite failing to qualify for Europe’s elite competition, a fifth-placed finish in Pochettino’s first season at the club isn’t a bad attamept by any stretch of the imagination and with the manager able to bring in his own players this summer, not to mention the goals of Harry Kane, Spurs might be able to get the job done next term.
Before Spurs bring in any more new faces, perhaps we’ll see a few disappear through the exit door however. Here, we have identified five Tottenham players who Spurs fans would rather not see at White Hart Lane come the start of the new season.
