Jose Mourinho wants a new centre-back and midfielder at Tottenham

Speaking on The Transfer Window Podcast, journalist Duncan Castles has revealed that Jose Mourinho has asked for two specific signings from Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

Mourinho and Tottenham were quite active this past summer, improving the squad with some very good additions. Tottenham signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon and Joe Rodon, while also bringing in Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius on loan.

However, Castles has claimed that Mourinho remains intent on further bolstering his squad and has his eyes set on a left-footed centre-back as well as a box-to-box midfielder.

“His view is they need a centre-back who is quicker over the ground and can compare to Eric Dier or Toby Alderweireld, and is also left-footed to help with the circulation of the play. Also, he would like another centre-midfielder added to the squad. A box-to-box midfielder, someone who can knit the play from back to front.”

While we already have a plethora of options at centre-back, all of the players are right-footed. Having lost Jan Vertonghen in the summer, we don’t have a left-footed central defender, so it is understandable as to why Mourinho wants to bring in one. However, for that to happen one of the current defenders may have to make way.

Hojbjerg has strengthened our midfield but he is an out-and-out No. 6, while both Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele are more attack-minded. So, adding a box-to-box operator to complement them in the middle would be a smart move as well.

However, given the way things are, it will be interesting to see if Levy sanctions any moves in the January transfer window.
