Jose Mourinho aims to balance squad with summer transfers

According to Football.London, Jose Mourinho intends to use the summer transfer window to build a balanced Tottenham Hotspur squad going into next season.

With Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son injured, Tottenham has relied on the likes of Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura to take up the mantle in the attack. Mourinho believes that this experience was a learning curve and will have done his wingers a world of good.

He played down the pressing concern of signing a number two for Kane. Mourinho claimed that rather than have a shortage of attackers, injuries to players in the same position is what has led to the predicament.

He intends to make sure that the squad is well prepared to handle these unpredictable problems for the next season.

He insisted that some positions take precedence over others but that does not mean you can overlook it.

“We look for next season to make a better squad than we have, a squad with more balance”

Spurs have had rotten luck with injuries so far this season. Hugo Lloris and Ben Davies missed a good chunk of the season and have only recently returned to action. Accomplished regulars, the duo have considerably improved their positions in the lineup.

Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, and Moussa Sissoko are crucial players whose absence can hurt any team. having all three out at once places is akin to a hammer blow hurting us at a critical point of the season.

Erik Lamela and Tanguy Ndombele too have looked impressive at times but failed to get a consistent run of games due to recurrent injuries.
