Jose Mourinho has asked Daniel Levy to get him five new signings to bolster his squad when the transfer window reopens, according to a report from 90 min.
This is consistent with reports back in March which suggested that the Spurs boss had been handed a €145million (£131m) war chest ahead of the summer to bring in a right-back, a left-back, a centre-half, a defensive midfielder, and a striker (BILD).
However, 90 min now reports that Tottenham will not be able to spend big this summer due to the financial hit they have taken as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite the financial constraints, the report reveals that the Spurs boss still wants the club to make five signings this summer to give him more options next season.
Daniel Levy is thus said to be scouring both the loan and free-agent market in order to get players in on a budget.
The report asserts that the Willian, Thiago Silva, Ryan Fraser, Aaron Ramsey, and Adrien Rabiot are all potential options Spurs could go for this summer.
It has been claimed that Spurs have also asked Real Madrid about the possibility of signing Gareth Bale on loan but the Welshman is said to be happy to see out his contract at the Bernabeu.

Based on Jose’s comments since arriving at North London, it is clear that he feels we have a very powerful first eleven when everyone is fit but he does not think the squad is good enough to compete for a whole season. I fully expect the Portuguese coach to make the case to Levy that the squad can challenge for the title again if they make four or five top additions. However, signing those players on the cheap will be difficult as all clubs around Europe will be going after free agents and potential bargain deals.
