Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino looks set to cut some of the deadwood from his squad, with the transfer rumblings around White Hart Lane today all focussed on the North London side selling players.
The Mirror states that Bundesliga side Wolfsburg are interested in bringing Son Heung-min back to Germany and Spurs could well allow the South Korea international to leave.

The gifted attacker moved to Tottenham last summer from Bayer Leverkusen and flitted in and out of the team in his debut campaign in English football.
Undoubtedly gifted, Son’s work-rate may well have ostracised him with Pochettino to some extent and as such the forward could well be heading out of the club before the end of August.
The Mirror also claim that midfield duo Tom Carroll and Ryan Mason have been told they can find new clubs.

The home-grown pair are both products of the club’s fabled youth system but are on the fringes of the White Hart Lane starting XI.
Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and summer signing Victor Wanyama are expected to share the two roles in the centre of midfield in 2016-17.
Carroll is wanted by Swansea according to the report, with the Welsh club knowing the playmaker well from a previous loan stint.
Mason is being linked to both Hull City and Aston Villa.
Finally, The Sun state that Pochettino is ready to let DeAndre Yedlin leave the club and a £5 million move to Newcastle is imminent.

There were high hopes for the USA international when he arrived in England and the right-back spent last season on loan at Sunderland.
However, with Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier in the Spurs first team, Yedlin looks set to leave.
