Tottenham Hotspur are hoping to raise £30m in transfer funds by selling Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the north London side are looking to offload both players this summer as they look to try and free up some transfer funds before the window closes next month.

Tottenham have been very quiet in the transfer window until now, and the Lilywhites have not yet signed a single player so far this summer.

With the window set to close on 9 August, Spurs are thought to be keen to raise funds to sign some new players before the start of the new campaign.

The same report says that Janssen is not in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans for the new season and that he is likely to be sold in the coming weeks.

According to the same story, Spanish striker Fernando Llorente is also up for sale this summer as the Lilywhites look to try and revamp their squad ahead of next season.

Tottenham finished in third place in the Premier League table last season but they will be hoping to challenge for the title next term as they look to try and win their first trophy under Pochettino.
