The return of Gareth Bale to Spurs has dominated the headlines over the past few days but reports indicate that Tottenham Hotspur are far from done yet in the transfer market.
The North Londoners are said to be looking to sign one more striker and a centre-back before the transfer window shuts on October 5th (Evening Standard).
Football.London’s Rob Guest has now shed light on who the Lilywhites have their eye on heading into the final two weeks of the transfer window.
Guest revealed that Benfica centre-back Ruben Dias is a player Jose Mourinho still reportedly admires and he suggests that the Lilywhites could make a move for him.
He also revealed that Tottenham’s priority at the moment is to sign a striker before moving on to their pursuit of a central defender.
The journalist claims that Dias’ Benfica teammate Carlos Vinicius is still a forward that the North Londoners are showing plenty of interest in but he also explained that Tottenham need to cash-in on some of their fringe players before they can make further moves in the transfer market.
Spurs Web Opinion
We have had an excellent transfer window so far, with the likes of Hojbjerg, Doherty, Reguilon and Bale all arguably improving our first eleven. However, I suspect that we are likely to go for squad options at both centre-half and striker.
With Jose seemingly trusting Dier, Sanchez and Toby, I expect us to bring in a younger central defender who can be eased into the side over the next couple of seasons. I also believe we are likely to go for a functional target man as a Kane back up rather than a big-money signing like Ings or Belotti.
