Tottenham Hotspur are willing to sell both Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier as they look to raise funds for their summer of spending, per the Daily Mail.

It does not appear that they are done, however, with the Daily Mail also claiming that Real Betis attacking midfielder Giovani Lo Celso is a target of Mauricio Pochettino, as well as Ryan Sessegnon at Fulham and, potentially, Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos.
Spurs, of course, reached the Champions League final in 2018/19 and are looking to strengthen their squad as they look to take the next step and improve on their fourth-placed finish in the Premier League.
As a result, both Wanyama and Dier are reportedly deemed expendable as Spurs aim to make even more signings this summer.
Spurs still need a squad.
One feels that Wanyama might well be done at the top level; he made a mere 13 Premier League appearances last season and completed the 90 minutes just twice.
He struggled with repeated knee injuries and cannot be trusted to play consecutively by his manager.
Cashing in on him makes sense but Dier is a full international and a versatile one to boot.
He can play in midfield and in central defence; Spurs can’t afford to bring in just one midfielder and then sell two. It doesn’t make sense.
Thus, ridding the squad of both Dier and Wanyama feels like a risk too far.
