Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to listen to offers for three of their first-team players, including one who may have been hoping for more chances under Nuno Espirito Santo.
The remodeling is in full swing at Tottenham after a slow start to summer. Now, with Nuno as the new coach and Fabio Paratici as managing director, you can plan the coming season better. After finishing seventh last season, they need to be smart on the transfer market.
Their focus is already on signings, but they also have to make decisions about players who are already available. For example, they’ll be desperate to stave off interest in their star striker Harry Kane – but some of his teammates may be in danger of being sold.
Now a report from talkSPORT has shed light on three players who could give way if sensible offers are received.
According to the radio station, Tottenham is open to offers for Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Matt Doherty.

Sanchez was once their club record signatory, but the defense as a whole came under scrutiny last season. While they’re trying to replenish the department, he’s now threatened with leaving.
The Colombian international was already combined with a return to the former Ajax clubalthough there might be other options for him.
Dier also played a lot in defense last season and Tottenham refused to let him go earlier in the transfer window. He was supposedly a Goal for ex-trainer Jose Mourinho at Romabut Spurs stood in his way.
However, if another applicant shows up, the England international could go to a different challenge.
Doherty also endangered
Of the three, perhaps the most surprising exit connection is that of Doherty, who only joined the club a year ago.
The full-back didn’t repeat the form that led Spurs to sign him. But some felt that Nuno’s appointment was a factor that could help him get back to his best.
Nuno helped Doherty develop at Wolves, so his appointment could have been good news for the Irishman. But after talkSPORT, it may not be enough to save his Spurs career.
With Takehiro Tomiyasu strongly linked to a move to Tottenham, there could soon be new competition in the full-back areas. So Doherty may have to give way.
It is not yet clear which clubs could come into play for the departing players but Tottenham will be paying attention to the approaches. Getting them off the books can help them fund their own signings.
