Jose Mourinho plans summer spending spree worth £120 million

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is set to embark on a massive summer spending spree. The Portuguese is looking to inject £120 million worth of talent into his squad. (h/t Express)

Mourinho’s focus seems to be on fixing his frail defence. Spurs currently have the least number of clean sheets in the league and the team’s lack of clean sheets place a heavier burden on the attack. This becomes profound when one considers the absence of goal machine Harry Kane.

Defensive stalwarts such as Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are in their 30s and their age is starting to show, especially in the case of the latter who is also out of contract in the summer.

Serge Aurier is a lively yet unreliable right back whereas Ryan Sessegnon is still young. The emergence of Japhet Tanganga present Spurs with a long term option going forward, but the addition of further quality in the summer will add a much-needed defensive solidity to the team.

Jose Mourinho is planning a summer rebuild at Spurs

One of the names linked with a move to Tottenham is Benfica’s Portuguese ace, Ruben Dias. The 22-year-old has gone from strength and strength and played a key role in Portugal’s UEFA Nations League triumph last year. The defender extended his contract until 2023 and has a release clause of £80 million.

Spurs are also likely to face competition fro Liverpool and Manchester City for the player’s signature. Dias is a solid centre-back, who can lay the foundation for Mourinho’s defensive system. Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake has also emerged as a cheaper alternative to Dias. The Dutchman will be familiar to Mourinho from his time at Chelsea and should cost half that of Dias.

Tottenham are also in the market for full-backs. They are keeping tabs on the likes of Max Aarons and Yousef Atal while Leicester City’s Benn Chilwell is also being monitored. Aarons is rated at £15 million whereas Atal should cost in the region of £25 million in the summer.

Tottenham have reinforced their squad in January. They signed the increasingly impressive Giovani Lo Celso on a permanent basis while also loaning Gedson Fernandes.

The most significant addition has to be that of Dutch winger Steven Bergwijn who scores on his debut against Manchester City.
