Jose Mourinho is in the market for a right-back and a back-up striker as part of his transfer plans have been revealed in a report by the Evening Standard.
The Portuguese wants to bring in another forward to ease the workload on injury-hit Harry Kane – and we’ve already relayed a story from The Sun on Sunday that Spurs would be interested in a £10million deal for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson if the Cherries were relegated. Napoli’s Azkadiusz Milik is another name that has been mentioned.
In terms of a right-back, the report suggests that Serge Aurier, who has been linked with Monaco, could be one of a host of defenders moved on this summer – with Norwich’s Max Aarons a name that has been continuously touted, although the 21-year-old has emerged as a target for Bayern Munich, according to Sky Sports.
Elsewhere Mourinho remains confident of completing a deal for Southampton’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the coming weeks – with Sky Sports reporting on Monday night that Spurs were edging closer to signing the Danish international.
In terms of outgoings, the Standard reckons that Mourinho is prepared to let young trio Oliver Skipp, Ryan Sessegnon and striker Troy Parrott all leave on loan this summer to continue their development, but wants to keep record-signing Tanguy Ndombele.
Juan Foyth, who hasn’t featured since the draw with Norwich in December, and both Danny Rose and Kyle Walker-Peters, who’ve been out on loan, could all be sold.
