Having missed out on the Premier League title in the last month of the previous season, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are still to be beaten in England’s top flight this season and are genuinely fighting for a place in the top-4. Though they have not been able to string wins together, the manager will know that he has a squad capable of maintaining the decent start to the end of the season and will hope to mount another title challenge. Some players in the squad are yet to have an effect on the league and with the January transfer window fast approaching, it might be time for the manager to think about loaning out or selling players who have no place in the squad.
Here are three such players that Pochettino might loan or sell in the January transfer window:
Marcus Edwards – Loan:
Breaking into the first team last season, the 17-year old has made an impressive start to his career at the Lane and is one of the most exciting talents at the academy in London. Though the fans of the club would love the youngster to stay at the club and continue his progress, he is a player who will need some regular game time to stay at the top of his game which will be hard to come by this season at Tottenham – simply because the team is already under immense pressure. Spurs have some decent depth in the attacking department leaving Edwards with just 3 substitute appearances this season and a place in the starting XI for the rest of the season at a club away from Tottenham might help him come out as a better player for the next season.
