Transfer News: Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho eyes Lucas Vazquez and Samuel Umtiti

According to the latest transfer news from Spanish publication Don Balon, Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho wants to sign La Liga duo Lucas Vazquez and Samuel Umtiti from Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.’

What started as a season full of promise seems like ending on a whimper for Tottenham. The Lilywhites crashed out of the Europa League on Thursday and seem well off in the race for the Premier League top-four. The Carabao Cup final against Manchester City is the only thing left to look forward to for the fans.

Lucas Vazquez has been with Real Madrid since 2007

Lucas Vazquez will be out of contract with Real Madrid this year

Manager Mourinho, however, is already drafting transfer plans for the next season, if the report from the Spanish news outlet is to be believed. And in his plans, the Portuguese tacticians has his sights set on Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez and Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.

Vazquez is in the final few months of his contract with Real Madrid and with his deal expiring a new deal is unlikely to be agreed upon. So, the Spanish international will be available on a free transfer in the summer. That, coupled with his pedigree as well as the versatility of being able to play at right-wing or right-back would be of appeal.

Umtiti, on the other hand, is a walking sick note, who has struggled for fitness ever since his 2018 FIFA World Cup triumph with France. A vastly experienced customer with his peak years in front of him, his injury track record makes his potential signing a major concern.

Mourinho, though, believes that he can get the best out of Umtiti as per the report. With the Frenchman not a part of Barcelona’s plans, he too could be available in the summer.

Both additions have their pros and cons. Any move for either Vazquez or Umtiti will only be in contention if Mourinho stays in charge of Tottenham beyond the season – something that is not entirely certain at the moment.
