Report: Tottenham decide to put six players up for sale, but Nuno could now change club's mind
Tottenham Hotspur are said to be open to selling Moussa Sissoko, Serge Aurier, Erik Lamela, Davinson Sanchez, Lucas Moura and Harry Winks this summer.
The London Evening Standard claims that the North London club have decided that all six players are expendable.
However, with Tottenham now having a new manager in place in the form of Nuno, their minds may be changed in the coming weeks.
Nuno was announced as Spurs boss last night, just in time for him to take over as manager ahead of pre-season on Monday.
It seems that Tottenham’s build-up to the new campaign could be crucial with a number of players set to be playing for their futures.
Most notable departures
In terms of the most notable names on the list, Sanchez’s potential departure may come as the biggest disappointment.
When Sanchez was signed by Tottenham for a then club record fee much was expected of the Colombian, but he has never quite reached his potential.
Sanchez has been too error prone, although Nuno’s preferred 3-5-2 system may suit him, as he will be able to press higher out of defence and use his speed.
Winks also may be asking questions of the new Tottenham manager over where his future lies.
Winks came through Spurs’ academy and has spent his entire career with the Lilywhites, but he fell out of favour under Jose Mourinho, and when he was given a chance his performances never truly did enough to help him nail down a spot in the team.
