Jose Mourinho to sign as many as five players in the transfer window
It is unclear when this year’s transfer window will be opened. One thing that is certain is that Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur will need to invest in the squad going into next season.
According to German publication Bild (h/t Express), Spurs plan to do just that and will hand the Portuguese worth £135million to spend on new players. Having already brought in Gedson Fernandes and Steven Bergwjn, Mourinho has already drawn up a list of players to target next.
Tottenham have failed to progress after the defeat in the Champions League final to Liverpool. New signings have failed to impress consistently while injuries too have been a major deterrent.
Stalwarts such as Christian Eriksen have left while Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen have regressed. Mourinho is now in an unenviable position of having to add to a squad to take us to the next level.
The Spurs boss is keen on RB Leipzig skipper Marcel Sabitzer, who put his side to the sword in the Champions League round of 16 second leg in Germany. The Austrian scored twice on the night and it looks to have a lasting impression.
The 26-year-old is at the top of Mourinho’s wishlist and will cost in the region of £45million. The Austrian, however, is not the only midfielder under consideration with Valencia star Geoffrey Kondogbia also being monitored.
Last but not least is central defence, where two of our stalwarts are in the later stages of their career. Vertonghen has regressed and is out of contract in the summer while Toby Alderweireld is not getting any younger.
In spite of the promise shown by Japhet Tanganga, Mourinho is keen on securing Eder Militao from Real Madrid. The Portuguese star has failed to nail down a starting spot at the Santiago Bernebeu.
