Mourinho is experiencing a frustrating spell of games at Tottenham with the team unable to keep a clean sheet.

Spurs have kept just 1 clean sheet in 12 games in what has been an antithesis to the defensive solidity expected under the Portuguese.

Mourinho is expected to revamp the Tottenham defense with full back being one of the positions given preference.

Barcelona’s right-back Nelson Semedo has emerged as an option for Tottenham and will be a much more reliable option that Serge Aurier and Danny Rose.

Nelson Semedo

No Top-Four? No Problem.

Spurs are considering a move for the 26-year-old, who is expected to cost £31million.

Semedo’s agent is reportedly in favor of a move to the Premier League, regardless of the club’s ability to provide Champions League football. The player is said to be interested in a move as long as it provides him with regular playtime as an important member of the squad. (h/t Daily Star)

This should be music to Tottenham’s ears with the club currently out of the Champions League spots.

The 26-year-old has made 27 appearances for the Catalans this season as he battles with Sergi Roberto for his spot. (h/t Whoscored)

Semedo is said to be a huge fan of Mourinho’s defensive acumen and will cherish working under the Portuguese maestro.
