As he approaches the end of his breakthrough season, Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is believed to feature on Pochettino’s wish-list, in a state of affairs that could spell bad news for Kieran Trippier.Unlikely to stay at Fulham following their relegation from the Premier League, Aleksandar Mitrovic is also being touted as a potential Tottenham target, although he’s more likely to get regular game time at Everton, Leicester City, West Ham or Southampton, who are also interested in securing his services. Valued at £50m by Fulham, Mitro may take himself off to China, where Guangzhou Evergreen are reported to be willing to match Fulham’s asking price and pay the 24-year-old £300,000 per week.

Elsewhere in London, West Ham are planning for life without Andy Carroll and Marko Arnautovic and think Roma striker Edin Dzeko could be the man to help them consolidate their rightful place somewhere between ninth and 17th in the Premier League table. A youngster in big demand, their midfielder Declan Rice may switch sides for the second time in a year by leaving the club for Manchester United in exchange for £50m.center_img Topics With Ole Gunnar Solskær at the Manchester United wheel and Zinedine Zidane getting his feet under the table at Real Madrid for the second time, Tottenham Hotspur fans could have been forgiven for thinking they could look forward to a relaxing summer free from worry about the possibility of their popular, highly regarded manager having his head turned by another club.
