Tottenham supporters have been somewhat frustrated in the Transfer Tavern this week after seeing their side held by League One’s bottom team Rochdale in the fifth round of the FA Cup last time out following a 2-2 draw at Spotland.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men went into their clash with the third tier strugglers off the back of coming from behind to draw 2-2 with European giants Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie, thus leaving them as favourites for progression when they meet in the return leg at Wembley in a fortnight’s time.

Thus, there have been many frustrated Tottenham fans in the Tavern in recent times, several of whom are hoping their team can get back to winning ways when they travel to Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday.

And were Alderweireld to indeed leave the club this summer, here are TWO other stars who could follow him out the door in the close season…
