Transfer: How much Mauricio Pochettino can raise through player sales in January to freshen up his squad

January could prove to be a very interesting time at Tottenham as Mauricio Pochettino looks to add to his squad.
Dele Alli and Lucas Moura are the only notable signings the Argentine has made in the winter transfer market in his five years in the capital, but that could be about to change with the team needing some fresh faces.
That means a few players could make way, although they may find it hard to part with the likes of Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen as clubs are unlikely to offer money given they can sign them for nothing in the summer.

But how much are the Tottenham players actually worth if Pochettino wanted to cash in? takes a look at the figures from
Transfermarkt .

Harry Kane – £135m
It comes as no surprise to see that Kane is the most valuable player at the club.
In fact, he’s the most valuable player in the Premier League alongside Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
Christian Eriksen – £90m
Spurs just won’t get £90m for the Dane given he can leave for nothing next summer if his contract situation doesn’t change.

A January exit could be a real possibility if clubs are willing to buy him, although they might be few and far between as they can sign him on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.
Dele Alli – £85m
The midfielder’s value has decreased in recent months after a drop in form from his previous best.
Son Heung-min – £72m
Daniel Levy would no doubt want in excess of £72m for Son given his importance to Spurs over the past few years.
Tanguy Ndombele – £58.5m
The summer signing has yet to justify his price tag after some poor performances since his big-money move from Lyon at the start of July.

Davinson Sanchez – £49.5m
Spurs’ most valuable defender but he cannot get a game at present with Alderweireld and Vertonghen ahead of him.
Giovani Lo Celso – £45m
The loan signing has only appeared in three games this season with a hip injury sustained on international duty leaving him on the sidelines.
Toby Alderweireld – £36m
The player’s contract situation means they just aren’t going to command a fee of £36m for the Belgian.
Will be able to leave on a free transfer in the summer if he doesn’t sign a new contract.

Lucas Moura – £36m
Spurs stand to make a profit on the Brazilian at present after signing him from Paris Saint-Germain for £25m in January 2018.
Harry Winks – £36m
Winks’ price tag has skyrocketed over the past 12 months after becoming a key part of Pochettino’s team.
Ryan Sessegnon – £31.5m
Set to return to action after the international break from the hamstring injury he sustained in the summer, Spurs got a very good deal on the player given he cost £25m.

Eric Dier – £27m
An exit for Dier could be a real possibility with plenty of players ahead of him in the pecking order in both defence and midfield.
Hugo Lloris – £22.5m
Spurs will have to cope without the Frenchman until 2020 after dislocating his elbow early on against Brighton.
Paulo Gazzaniga now has the chance to push for the No.1 spot following a couple of clangers from his teammate.
Moussa Sissoko – £22.5m
The midfielder’s long-term future is in N17 as he penned a new contract with the club until 2023 last month.

Danny Rose – £22.5m
Remains at Spurs despite looking likely to move on in the summer.
You would expect it to be his last season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium unless something drastically changes.
Ben Davies – £22.5m
Signed a new contract in the summer and now looking to make the left-back berth his own once again.
Jan Vertonghen – £19.8m
On course to leave Spurs on a free transfer in the summer unless his contract situation changes before then.

Erik Lamela – £19.8m
Spurs would want a lot more than £19.8m if the Argentine moved on following a good start to the season.
Victor Wanyama – £13.5m
Another player who still remains in the capital despite looking likely to leave ahead of the current season.
Serge Aurier – £13.5m
Tried to seal a move away from the Lilywhites in the summer but a deal never came to fruition.
Like Rose, looks set to be his last season at the club.

Juan Foyth – £13.5m
Now a full Argentina international and worth a lot more than £13.5m.
Kyle Walker-Peters – £9m
It doesn’t look good for him at Spurs with Sissoko starting ahead of him at right-back against Brighton.
May look to move on if opportunities don’t come his way.

Oliver Skipp – £7.2m
Time on the pitch will be very hard to come by this season with the amount of midfielders ahead of him in the pecking order.
Paulo Gazzaniga – £1.8m
Now has his chance between the sticks following Lloris’ injury.
Another player worth more than their apparent market value.
