Alasdair Gold reveals Tottenham Hotspur are looking to sell five defenders

Football. London journalist Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to part ways with a quintet of defenders: Davinson Sanchez, Joe Rodon, Japhet Tanganga, Sergio Reguilon, and Djed Spence.

It’s no secret that a team’s solidity at the back is often a harbinger of success. Postecoglou, a mastermind renowned for his tactical prowess, seems keen on engineering a defensive metamorphosis that can fortify the squad’s foundations.

It comes as no surprise that he is looking to shift out some of the deadwood in the backline as this will help him sign new players for the position who align with his vision and ideology for the team.

Sanchez, often subjected to a whirlwind of speculation, is closing in on an exit from the club. Ever since the beginning of the summer, it has always looked like the Colombian will be on his way out.

Rodon and Tanganga, the promising talents who’ve adorned Tottenham’s colours with pride, are also primed for a potential curtain call. The mention of their names in the departure list underscores the sweeping transformation the club is orchestrating.

Tottenham’s intentions stretch beyond the centre-back position, as Reguilon and Spence’s names enter the conversation. The former in particular was destroyed by Barcelona’s 16-year-old prodigy Lamine Yamal in their recent encounter.

Every era in football ushers in a period of transition, a phase where the old guard makes way for the new blood, and tactical recalibrations forge a new identity on the pitch. This is exactly what Tottenham are going through right now.

Except for the likes of Tanganga who might still come good for the club, the other names can be shifted out by Tottenham. Regardless, the club is keen on shifting out all five players and we must invest that money elsewhere.
