Tottenham’s search for a new manager has been the dominant story at the club in the current transfer window.
They would never have expected that it would be this tough to name a replacement for Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese was fired in April and their search for a replacement has been filled with near misses all summer.
While they wait to appoint a new head coach, they have made Fabio Paratici their latest sporting director and the Italian administrator is set to work on signing and selling players.
His tenure officially starts next week, but he has already started identifying players for the club.
Football London says he is expected to help them make some money by offloading some of their current squad members.
The report names two stars who should leave the club in this transfer window as soon as Paratici’s tenure starts.
The report says Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela may have played their last games for the club and he is expected to find new homes for them.
Aurier has interest from the likes of PSG and AC Milan while Italian clubs want to take Lamela back to Serie A.
Selling these players will add good money to Spurs’ transfer budget which they should then splash on new players.
