Former Hull City defender Alex Bruce has insisted that every single Tottenham player is under the threat of being shunned in the summer as Jose Mourinho goes about putting his own stamp on the side.
Spurs’ results improved considerably after Mourinho took over the reins from Mauricio Pochettino in November, with the club initially making up quite a bit of distance to the Champions League spots.
However, the team has put in many poor performances over the last couple of months and have failed to win any of their last six matches in all competitions.
The Lilywhites found themselves being knocked out of the Champions League and the FA Cup, and being left behind in the race for the top four finish, just before the coronavirus put a stop to the season.
Reports have indicated that Mourinho wishes to undertake a massive rebuild in the summer, with the defence said to be his priority (Express).
Bruce expects big changes at Spurs this summer and insisted that Chelsea wide-man Willian is exactly the type of consistent option the Portuguese will go for.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Hull star said: “I think everybody’s future is under threat at Spurs, purely because they haven’t hit the heights where they should be.
“I think that’s pretty evident to everybody and I’m sure that you certainly wouldn’t need to tell Mourinho that. He’ll know exactly where he needs to strengthen.
“We all know what kind of league the Premier League is in terms of the demands it has and when you’re a team like Tottenham, one thing you really need is to be there or there about at the top end of the table.
“At the minute, they’ve been too up and down in terms of performance levels. It doesn’t surprise me that the likes of Willian, who’s a consistent performer, they’re the type of players Mourinho will want around the squad.
“At the minute, the players have been too up and down and you can’t get away with it.”

I do believe Daniel Levy was planning to back Mourinho considerably in the summer. However, many clubs have taken a massive financial hit due to the coronavirus shutdown and I fear that it might affect their ability to spend in the transfer window. We could see much less money being spent this summer across Europe compared to the last few years.
