Tottenham have made an encouraging start to the transfer window – but reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano believes that Jose Mourinho is still looking to add to his squad in the coming weeks.
The Portuguese has already secured the services of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton, goalkeeper Joe Hart on a free transfer and right-back Matt Doherty from Wolves earlier this month.
Spurs are looking to sell Serge Aurier, whose recently held talks with AC Milan, although the fee for the Ivory Coast international has proved to be a stumbling block, whilst Danny Rose and Juan Foyth look to be surplus to requirements in N17 and could also be sold.
If those three depart, it would leave Mourinho with just six defenders – and Romano said that the Spurs boss is looking to sign another centre-back this summer.
Romano also stated that Mourinho is in the market for some more attacking options ahead of what is expected to be a hectic season for the north Londoners.
He told the Last Word on Spurs podcast: “I expect Tottenham to go for a centre-back, they are also considering the opportunity about a new winger in my opinion, and a new striker because they need a back-up option for Harry Kane.”
