Spurs announced devastating losses of £63.9million last November, with Covid-19 having significantly hit the club in the pocket.

This summer, they want to prioritise signing a new goalkeeper, right-back and centre-back.

And according to the Mail, Serge Aurier, Erik Lamela and even skipper Hugo Lloris could all depart.

A problem for club chiefs, however, is that their star players’ values have decreased in the last two seasons.

Two prime examples are Dele Alli and Harry Winks, who have largely been cast aside by under-pressure Jose Mourinho.

But both players could STAY at Spurs, if the Portuguese is dispensed with before next season.

Getting rid of the 58-year-old won’t be cheap, however, and would hit Spurs in the pocket even more.
