Pochettino insists he is ready to let any player that is not committed to his plan leave before the August 31 deadline.

Reports have linked the likes of Tony Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Vincent Janssen away from the club.

While talking to the media ahead of the game against Fulham at Wembley, Pochettino said: “Maybe, yes, we are going to see if some players believe that they can achieve their goals in another club. Maybe they are going to move. Different individual things can happen in the next few weeks.

“If some player is not happy because he needs to play or believes he can play more at another team, or needs to change the environment, or needs a new challenge or motivation, I told them that I am open to find the solution.

“It is so clear the rules. It is so clear my message. I promise I am going to fix it if someone is not happy to be here for the next five months until the trans-fer window opens again. All people here need to feel they can be part of the team, and help the team any time the manager commands.”
