Tottenham are monitoring Sergio Ramos’ situation at Real Madrid as the defender nears the end of his contract, according to the London Evening Standard.
Ramos’ current deal expires at the end of the season and he will be allowed to speak with other clubs about a free transfer next summer when January rolls around.
The Standard claims Mourinho, who managed Ramos during his time as Real Madrid manager, is ‘keeping an eye’ on the Spain international’s situation.
The report also says Spurs could revive their interest in Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar next month, which suggests Mourinho is still not totally happy with his centre-back options.
Ramos will turn 35 in March, so there will be the obvious concerns about handing an ageing player an expensive contract.
But the absence of a transfer free may tempt Daniel Levy into making a move for Ramos, whose arrival would surely be fruitful from a marketing standpoint.
Davinson Sanchez has seen his game time reduced this term – though he did start against Wolves on Sunday – and so Tottenham may be in need of a new centre-back if they sell the Colombian.
Whether Ramos is a genuine target, however, remains to be seen – he could yet extend his Real Madrid contract.
