Tottenham preparing £90m summer mass exodus

Tottenham are planning to flog as many as nine first-team players this summer as Mauricio Pochettino aims to build a squad capable of finishing in the top four.

According to the Independent, almost half of the stars set for the axe were signed using the £86million raised from the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in 2013.

Roberto Soldado, Vlad Chriches, Etienne Capoue, Paulinho, Younes Kaboul, Emmanuel Adebayor, Mousa Dembele, Benjamin Stambouli and Aaron Lennon are all thought to be heading for the White Hart Lane exit door at the end of the season, with Spurs hoping to raise as much as £90m to spend on replacements.

Pochettino is believed to have already finalised his shortlist of summer targets, and is expected to sit down with club chairman Daniel Levy shortly after Spurs’ final day meeting with Everton to discuss further.

The Independent are reporting that the Spurs boss wants a wide forward, a centre-half and a central midfielder this summer.

And the club set to play pre-season friendlies in Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, Pochettino is eager to have his side summer pretty much completed as early as possible.
