Tottenham are today being linked with a move for Barcelona outcast Ibrahim Afellay.

The Dutchman is currently down the pecking order with the Catalan giants and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez will do little to help his chances of breaking into the starting XI.

Reports in Spain suggest that Barcelona vice-president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, is currently London bound as the European Champions try and wrap up a deal for Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas.

He is expected to arrive over the weekend and the Spanish press suggest Bartomeu and his Barca delegation will make the small trip across North London which will see Spurs wrap up a deal for Afellay.

Spurs are keen to add new-blood to their ranks and see the 25-year-old, formely of PSV Eindhoven, as a major coup.

However, the Holland international has continuously declared his happines with the Spanish giants pre-Sanchez.

But with the signing of the Chilean international now secure, Afellay may be forced to re-think his future with Barcelona.

Spurs are no stranger to dealing with the defending La Liga champions having signed Giovani Dos Santos and, more recently, Christian Cabellos from them.

Jose Mourinho interested in moving for Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Jose Mourinho is interested in landing former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to the Telegraph.

The Swede is available on a free transfer in January after his spell with the LA Galaxy ended.

Mourinho has worked with Zlatan in the past during their times at Inter Milan and United. The 38-year-old was signed by the new Tottenham manager in 2016 at Manchester and scored 26 goals for them.

The Telegraph adds that such a move could suit Zlatan, given that we didn’t replace Fernando Llorente in the summer.

We don’t have a back-up for Harry Kane, however, there is interest from several Italian clubs for the Swede too (h/t Telegraph).

Zlatan only a short-term option

Tottenham see Ibrahimovic as a short-term solution and may not offer him the 18-month contract he desires (h/t Telegraph).

There are also concerns regarding his wages and Tottenham don’t want to damage their pay structure at the moment (h/t Telegraph).

However, Ibra could be tempted to join the club as he could help us land a trophy with Mourinho by his side (h/t Telegraph).

We didn’t win anything under Mauricio Pochettino and it will be interesting to see if Mourinho can turn things around for us quickly.

Spurs could do with the talented Swede coming in, however, he is a tough character to deal with. Mourinho can work with that but Ibra would have to be on the bench for most games as Kane is our first-choice forward.

The Swede has a ton of experience of playing for top clubs and has represented Ajax, AC Milan, Juventus and Barcelona during his illustrious career.

Jose Mourinho wants to sign Nemanja Matic, Ruben Dias and Bruno Fernandes

Jose Mourinho has shared his three main transfer targets to Daniel Levy, according to the Independent (h/t Express).

The report claims that Mourinho is hopeful of strengthening Tottenham in the winter window.

The three players that the new boss wants are Nemanja Matic, Ruben Dias and Bruno Fernandes (h/t Express).

Bruno Fernandes

Mourinho knows Matic from their time at Chelsea and Manchester United. The Serbian midfielder is set to leave the Red Devils (h/t Express) and it will be interesting to see if the manager can nab him from his ex-club.

Portuguese stars to save Tottenham’s season?

Tottenham have struggled this season for consistency. We lie 14th in the Premier League and need a string of wins to close the gap on the top four.

Fernandes has been linked with a move to the Premier League too (h/t Express) and has been in fine form this season.

The 25-year-old has eight goals this season and could provide more attacking quality to the midfield.

The report claims that Fernandes could replace Christian Eriksen, who is a free agent at the end of the season.

Dias is an interesting name, given that he is one of the brightest defenders in Portugal. The 22-year-old has forced his way into the national team and could be a long-term replacement for Jan Vertonghen or Toby Alderweireld (h/t Express).

Tottenham didn’t spend a lot during the winter windows under former manager Mauricio Pochettino.

It will be interesting to see if that changes in January as we start a new era with Mourinho at the helm.

Jose Mourinho is planning an incredible move to re-sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

AS (h/t Sun) claims that Mourinho is plotting a move to bring Bale back to Tottenham. The Welsh winger joined Real from Spurs in 2013, however, he hasn’t had the best of relationships with current manager Zinedine Zidane (h/t Telegraph).

The 30-year-old seemed set to move to the Chinese Super League in the summer but Real blocked that move (h/t Sun).

Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has also claimed that a winter move from the Spanish capital would not take place (h/t Sun).

Euro 2020 celebrations could see Bale move

The Welshman helped his nation seal a place in Euro 2020 and his celebrations didn’t go down well.

Bale and his teammates held a Welsh flag which said “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order”.

That could open the door for Mourinho to swoop in but Manchester United are also keen on the 30-year-old (h/t Sun).

Bale could still do a job for a top club, but he isn’t a long-term solution given his age.

It is going to be an interesting couple of months till the winter window for Mourinho. The Portuguese will have some time to judge the current crop of players and then make a decision on their futures.

Mou has to work with the players at hand but could use the funds from the trios sale in the January window (h/t Daily Star).

Tottenham have a decent squad, even if we take our the out of contract trio, and this could be one of Mou’s biggest tests ever.
