Tottenham have finally received approaches for Moussa Sissoko and Serge Aurier, who were both told earlier in the window they were free to leave the club this summer. Finding buyers for the pair has proved challenging though but now the duo are edging closer to the exit door after being deemed surplus the requirements by Nuno Espirito Santo.
Spurs technical director Fabio Paratici is well aware that he needs to clear the decks if he wants to bring in several additions before Tuesday night’s deadline.
That’s because Tottenham currently have 17 foreign players within their squad, which is the maximum you can have under Premier League regulations.
