Tottenham are trying to sell everyone on deadline day

New, comment

Well, maybe not everyone.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino looks to be hard at work on the final day of the January transfer window trying to offload some superfluous parts of his roster. Several Spurs players, including Emmanuel Adebayor, Younes Kaboul, Etienne Capoue and Aaron Lennon have been linked with moves away from White Hart Lane, but as of the late afternoon in England, no deals have been done.

Younes Kaboul

Despite being named Spurs' captain over the summer, the central defender has fallen out of favor, having played just twice since November. Spurs have five central defenders on the roster at the moment, so tying to offload at least one makes sense. Vlad Chiriches was rumored to be on his way to Roma, but that deal fell apart, so now Kaboul seems the most likely man to move. West Ham is reportedly interested in him, possibly willing to pay £2.5 million.

Emmanuel Adebayor

Queens Park Rangers appear to be the favorite to sign the striker, but they're not alone in the pursuit for Adebayor. West Ham are also interested in the Togolese forward, while Crystal Palace had a bid reportedly rejected by Spurs. QPR boss Harry Redknapp is of course quite familiar with Adebayor, and he might end up being the only man willing to pay Adebayor's high wages.

Aaron Lennon

Hull City and Leicester City wanted Lennon, but that deal fell apart when the winger decided he didn't want to join the Tigers or Foxes. Stoke City are interested, possibly on a loan deal with the option to buy over the summer. Everton have apparently gotten involved as well with several betting sites dropping the odds on Lennon joining the Toffees after a flurry of business. There's not much solid at this point, but it appears the club and the player are willing to make a deal, so it just comes to down to if they can find the proverbial dance partner.

Etienne Capoue

West Brom could be interested in the defensive midfielder, who joined Spurs less than two years ago as part of the spending surge in the wake of the club selling Gareth Bale to Real Madrid. There haven't been any solid reports on how likely it is that the deal will happen, but with Brown Ideye likely off to Qatar, the Baggies have some money in the budget.
