According to a report in the Daily Mail, Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho will resist the impulse to spend big in the January transfer window despite being handed a transfer kitty by the club.

It is claimed that Mourinho has been promised considerable funds to shape the squad the way he wants to but he is not too keen on spending in January as he knows good deals will be difficult to agree in the winter window.

The report suggests that the Portuguese manager instead wait until the summer before spending big.

He is apparently aware that he might have to do some rebuilding work in the summer with some Spurs stars nearing the end of their contracts.

The report does suggest that the new head coach wants to add a right-back next month with Nathan Ferguson of West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City’s Max Aarons having both been scouted by the Champions League finalists.

We as a club generally don’t do too much business in January and so this report is hardly surprising. A move for a right-back in January would suggest that the Spurs boss isn’t too convinced by Kyle Walker-Peters. I would have thought the 56-year-old would also be interested in bringing in a centre forward who can provide cover for Harry Kane.
