Five players will all be made available for transfer, according to the Mirror journalist Darren Lewis. The reporter believes the club will “start listening to offers” for Toby Alderweireld, Mousa Dembele, Moussa Sissoko, Fernando Llorente and Danny Rose.
All of the players named have been widely tipped to leave in recent months, but with the club having played their final game of the season, it seems they have started the process of offloading them.
The futures of both Sissoko and Llorente have been sealed for a while it seems, with neither featuring prominently under Mauricio Pochettino this campaign.
Toby’s contract situation has been well documented, and it has become apparent that the impasse will not be broken. The club will therefore look to get as much as they can for the Belgian.
For Rose and Dembele however, things are more complicated. Danny’s injury problems and the fact he has a contract until 2021 means there is still a small chance he will remain at the club.
With Mousa, his contract is a problem. The 30-year-old has not agreed an extension beyond 2019, and despite Poch’s admiration for him and his displays this season, there is a possibility he will be sold to China or Italy to make sure we get a transfer fee for him.
