Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is reportedly set to soften his stance on negotiations regarding player departures in order to help manager Mauricio Pochettino get rid of players, who are surplus to requirement.
According to the Daily Mail, the Argentine manager is planning a mass clear out in the summer as he looks to offload various players, who have failed to impress him and nail down a regular place in the first-team since his arrival from Southampton in the summer.
Emmanuel Adebayor, Paulinho, Roberto Soldado, Moussa Dembele, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches and Aaron Lennon are the players, who will be allowed to leave in the summer.
But, Spurs could find it hard to sell the players to interested clubs as Levy looks to get the best value for his player's in order to boost the coffers at the club, and some of the valuations for players could be beyond the means of clubs willing to buy their players.
Pochettino is keen to offload as many players as possible to give them enough leeway in the transfer market to bring in players, while offering attractive wages which will help them land their primary targets. The manager has also made it clear that he will have the final say regarding the incomings and outgoings at White Hart Lane this summer.
The report claims that the chairman is willing to soften his stance when it comes to selling unwanted players, but is still adamant that interested parties pay a fair amount if they want to buy players from Tottenham.
Off all the players on the departure list, the club are keen to get Adebayor off their wage list the most, as the Togo striker is getting paid £100,000-a-week, and is not part of the manager's plans for the upcoming season.
The club are willing to let him leave on a free transfer, despite the former Arsenal striker having a year left on his contract. They are also ready to subsidise his wages in order to make him more affordable to interested parties.
