Jose Mourinho spoke of his desire to add another forward to his Tottenham Hotspur squad during the summer transfer window and revealed that he was quietly confident that the club would come up trumps (Sky Sports).
The North Londoners had been left without an out and out alternative to Harry Kane to lead the front line since Fernando Llorente departed at the end of his contract last summer.
While Heung-min Son has helped to pick up the slack when Kane has been left sidelined, the lack of another forward came to haunt the club when the South Korean was also injured at the start of the year.
One player who was linked with a move to Spurs was Eintracht Frankfurt forward Bas Dost (Football Insider).
Frankfurt only bought the forward from Sporting Lisbon 12 months ago for £6.5million with the 31-year-old scoring 10 goals in Germany last season after he netted 81 in 103 appearances for Sporting (The Mail).
Dos has now spoken about Tottenham’s rumoured interest and appears to have played down the possibility of leaving the Bundesliga outfit.
He told Bild: “I heard from my advisor that [Tottenham] were really there and were interested, but I don’t think it was ever an issue for me to be a regular there, and I just want to play”.
When asked about the interest from a coach of Mourinho’s calibre, he added: “That’s something, but if you look at my career, I’ve never left a club after just one season. Not now either, especially since I’ve only been able to show a little here. I’m far from finished with Eintracht!”.
