For Mauricio Pochettino to bring in any more midfielders and wide attackers, then there has to be outgoings. We are overloaded in the area and some of them aren't good enough to hold down a regular first team place.
We are looking to bring in Georges-Kevin N'Koudou and are having to let Clinton Njie go to secure him. While others are up for sale at the right price, Carroll, Mason, Chadli there is not enough interest to expect any of them to leave.
Nabil Bentaleb was not getting first team football, even when fit and asked to leave the club h claimed was his. That has seen him sidelined while he tries to organise a move. Clubs in the Premier League don't wantto pay his wages and the only offers coming in were loan offers. There were loan offers fro Italy but Tottenham want a sale, that reduces the clubs with the ability to buy him.
He has been priced reasonably to facilitate a move and perhaps allow more clubs to afford his wages. Bundesliga side Schalke submitted a £9.94-million (€11.5m - AUS$17.09m - US$12.79m) bid which was immediately rejected.
Foot Merato are reporting that Schalke have come back to Tottenham and submitted an increased offer, although they don't reveal how much that is. This is an encouraging sign, they will know what wages Bentaleb wants and will have agreed something in principle with his agent. A second bid shows they are serious about trying to buy him.
W await developments.
