As is always the case with Tottenham, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive recently, with the club being linked with dozens of names.
Jose Mourinho has admitted that Tottenham will do what is necessary to strengthen the squad this summer and insisted that he was on the same page as the club’s hierarchy (Football.London).
A report by ESPN has claimed that Jose Mourinho is after a right-back, a central defender, a defensive midfielder and a backup striker this summer.
It is alleged that Southampton’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is the club’s main midfield target, with the North Londoners confident of beating Everton to the Denmark international’s signature, with Kyle Walker-Peters being used as a part of the deal.
If the club fail to get Hojbjerg in, it is said that they could move for Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare, although his price tag might be an issue.
As far as right-backs are concerned, it is alleged that Timothy Castagne and Max Aarons are the two main options Tottenham are examining, now that their main target, Thomas Meunier, has joined Borussia Dortmund.
It is claimed that Mourinho is keen to be reunited with Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma this summer, while the club are also said to be looking at various options as a backup to Kane.
The report reveals that Spurs were keen on Victor Osimhen but it is alleged that his price tag eventually proved too much for the club. Surprisingly, a possible return for Fernando Llorente has also been suggested as a possibility.

If it is a centre-back, a right-back, a defensive midfielder and a backup striker that we are after, then I would suggest that the club have their priorities spot on. Based on the various wingers we have been linked with over the past couple of months, it also appears as if Jose wants to add another wide option to the squad. If we are to take the cup competitions seriously next season and compete on four fronts, then we could do with four or five additions this summer.
