Tottenham have a knack of selling their unwanted players for big prices.

The Sun claim Tottenham Hotspur will seek to sell two players before buying this summer.

The duo expected to head out the door are two who were signed last summer, Moussa Sissoko and Georges Kevin N'Koudou.

Sissoko has started only seven league matches this season since his move from Newcastle United, while N'Koudou has not started a single Premier League game.

The pair cost more than £40 million combined, and chairman Daniel Levy will have his work cut out getting his money back.

Fortunately this is an area in which he excels, receiving big money for Nabil Bentaleb and Paulinho in recent seasons.

Both players are likely to return to France, with Le Phoceen reporting Marseille's interest in Sissoko earlier this week. 85 per cent of fans of the Ligue 1 club who responded to a fan said they would welcome the midfielder.

The Mirror reported recently that N'Koudou is being lined up by one of his former clubs, Nantes.

The Sun's report claims once Spurs sell the duo they will focus on signing a winger, with Galatasaray's Bruma among their top targets.
