Jose Mourinho is willing to lose Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

Mourinho has taken over at Tottenham after Spurs sacked Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday.

He took his first training session just hours after his appointment was confirmed, getting a look at his new players.

Eriksen, Alderweireld and Vertonghen’s futures at Tottenham are all in doubt with the trio set to leave when their contracts expire in the summer.

And Express Sport understands that Mourinho is happy to dispense with all three players.

It may come as somewhat of a surprise with the manager having been keen to sign Alderweireld during his previous job at Manchester United.

Eriksen was also linked with a move to Old Trafford while Mourinho was in charge, though the Dane has gone off the boil in recent months.

Should Tottenham manage to sell the three players in January, funds may be used to help Mourinho strengthen the squad.

Though the former Real Madrid boss insists he is happy with the talent he already has in place.

Mourinho said: “I am excited to be joining a club with such a great heritage and such passionate supporters.

"The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me. Working with these players is what has attracted me.”

"I really like this squad and looking to the young players there is not one manager in the world that doesn't like to play young players and to help young players develop.

"There is not one. The problem is that sometimes you get into clubs where the work that is below you is not good enough to produce these players so I look to our history and you see that the Academy is always giving the talents that the first team need.

"I look forward to work with that profile.”
