Tottenham are looking to ship out five players during this month’s transfer window, the Daily Mirror reports.

The club will listen to offers for Mousa Dembele and the Mirror say Fernando Llorente, Vincent Janssen, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Victor Wanyama are also up for sale.

It comes after Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino suggested at a press conference on Thursday that he would need to offload players in order to bring new ones in.

Pochettino said: “In case we don’t sell players, it’s impossible to bring players.”

Meanwhile, The Sun say Spurs and Chelsea want Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie, who is currently on loan at AC Milan from Atalanta.

The Sun also reports that Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is wanted by Spanish club Sevilla.

Crystal Palace have made a £6.5m bid for Everton striker Oumar Niasse after a loan deal for Liverpool forward Dominic Solanke fell through, again according to The Sun.

And the Daily Mail say Aston Villa could snap up Timothy Fosu-Mensah as well as Brentford midfielder Romaine Sawyers.

Defender Fosu-Mensah is currently on loan from Manchester United at Fulham, who are reported to be considering terminating the season-long deal in order to free up space in the squad.
