Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham Hotspur

Pochettino to wield the axe as he plans to cut down his Tottenham squad

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino looks set to wield the axe this summer, as he leaves a number of players out of the clubs pre-season tour of Australia.

Nabil Bentaleb, Alex Pritchard, Federico Fazio and Clinton N’Jie have all been left out of the clubs travelling party as the team jet down under for pre-season fixtures against Juventus and Atletico Madrid.

All four players look set to be sold by the Argentine boss, despite Bentaleb only signing a new five-year deal last year, whilst N’Jie only arrived at White Hart Lane last summer.

N’Jie has been linked with a move to Marseille as part of deal to bring Georges-Kevin N’Koudou.

Harry Kane was also left off the plane from London to Melbourne as Pochettino granted the England striker extra time for recovery following his disappointing Euro 2016 campaign with England.
