Tottenham Hotspur have been proactive in the summer transfer window so far, managing to complete three signings in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty with almost two weeks still left before the start of the season.

The Express claim that the Lilywhites are far from done this summer, with Jose Mourinho still wanting multiple additions before the transfer window shuts.

A striker to serve as a back to Harry Kane is said to be on Mourinho’s radar with reports claiming that the Spurs boss has identified two potential candidates.

It is suggested that Diego Costa and Callum Wilson are both on Tottenham’s shopping list this summer.

Costa, who Mourinho brought to Chelsea back in 2014 has fallen out of favour at Atletico Madrid and it is suggested that Spanish giants have offered the striker to Spurs (Daily Star).

The report reveals that Spurs are also seriously considering Wilson as an option, having already agreed to meet the Bournemouth striker’s £75,000 per week wage demands.

The Cherries, however, are said to be holding out for a fee of around £30million.

It is also suggested that Tottenham are considering making a move for Watford left-back Pervis Estupinan.

I can see why some Spurs fans are not sure about the idea of bringing Diego Costa on board as the 31-year-old can be a bit of a loose cannon. However, the idea has certainly grown on me over the last few days and I am convinced that he can be a terrific asset for us if Mourinho manages him correctly.

The links to Estupinan also do not seem to be going away, although there have also been suggestions of a potential move for Sergio Reguilon recently as well. However, with Alasdair Gold indicating that Mourinho is quite happy with his options at left-back, I do not expect us to move for either player this summer.
