In his bid to bolster his squad ahead of the coming season, Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly set to sell seven Paris Saint-Germain players in order to raise funds for new signings, Soccer Laduma reports.

PSG will be busy in the transfer market as they look to challenge for titles in the forthcoming season after failing to win Ligue 1 and the Champions League during the last campaign.

They have already signed free agent Georginio Wijnaldum and are closing in on a deal to land Achraf Hakimi which will cost the French giants about €70 million.

And there are more signings ahead and the club is desperate in raising nothing less than €200 million from the sale of players if they want to get more of Pochettino's targets according to BeSoccer.

Other targets by the club include Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma who are expected to sign on free transfers, but the club's wage bill is expected to grow if they don't part ways with some first-team squad members.

And now Pablo Sarabia, Ander Herrera and Leandro Paredes will be allowed to go as it seems their time at the French capital is up.

Meanwhile, Idrissa Gueye, Thilo Kehrer, Abdou Diallo and Layvin Kurzawa could also be going through the club's exit doors with new blood expected to come in.
