As Fabio Paratici and Paulo Fonseca arrive at Tottenham several players could be heading in the other direction.

Spurs have named Paratici as the club's director of football with former Roma boss Fonseca expected to shortly follow becoming the new head coach.

Paratici, who spent 11 years at Juventus, is expected to become the public face of the club's hierarchy and have a huge say on their transfer dealings

And the Italian has already started working on Spurs' signing plans for this summer with wholesale changes expected to be made.

football.london reports that he is looking to cash in on several players to fund their budget and has told certain individuals they can look for a new club this summer.

With that in mind, we have taken a look at which players could be heading out the exit door during this transfer window.

Which players should Spurs sell this summer? Comment below

Serge Aurier

The Ivorian has already indicated he is looking to leave Spurs this summer and Fonseca's arrival will unlikely change that stance.

There have been some mixed performances from the 28-year-old who has a year left on his contract.

Aurier has been linked with the likes of AC Milan and PSG and if a suitable bid lands for the defender, Spurs will no doubt take them up on that offer.

Dele Alli

The Englishman's form dropped off a cliff last season under Jose Mourinho and it remains to be seen if he can get back to the player he was.

In theory, he could get a fresh chance under Fonseca as everyone will be on a level playing field, but there is also a chance they could cut their losses.

Alli's age means he wouldn't be short of suitors and if Spurs believe the midfielder's sale could facilitate a deal for a player in an area that's more of a priority, they wouldn't hesitate to part ways with him.

Erik Lamela

The Frenchman has been a fantastic servant to the club and, on his day, he is up there with best of them.

Scoring one 'Rabona' goal in a player's career would be considered impressive so it's a testament to his talent that he has produced two of them.

But those moments of quality have been few and far between, mostly because of his injury troubles.

Lamela cannot be relied upon to be for the full season, and even though that improved last season, it's something that the club will consider when deciding his future with only a year left on his deal.

Cameron Carter-Vickers

The American is set to return from his loan spell from Bournemouth but seems like his time is up at Spurs.

The 23-year-old was set to be a free agent, but it's believed the club extended his contract by a year so they can recoup some money for him.

Carter-Vickers had a slow start with the Cherries but performed well towards the end of the season as they came up short in the Championship playoffs.

Eric Dier

Spurs' main priority is signing at least one centre-back in the summer which means current players in that position are in jeopardy of being put on the shop window.

And Eric Dier could come into that category after the Englishman's inconsistent year.

Davinson Sanchez didn't cover himself in glory either but Spurs paid a heft fee for the Colombian and they might not be willing to cut their losses just yet.

Toby Alderweireld, 32, is getting older but he was the team's most consistent centre-half last term and Fonseca might lean on his experience in his debut season.

Dier, by default, is the one who makes most sense for the club to sell if they are looking to bring in money.
