According to a report in Les Sports, new Spurs boss Jose Mourinho wants the club to bring in former Everton and Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini in the January transfer window.
The report claims that Mourinho has already contacted Fellaini about a possible reunion and that the 32-year-old is interested in joining him at Spurs.
The Belgian international, who swapped Manchester United for Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng Taishan earlier in the year, had a great relationship with Mourinho at his former club.
The midfielder has been in fine form for his new club having netted 12 goals and delivered five assists in 32 games since his arrival in China (Les Sports).
Some Spurs fans were horrified by the link with the former Man Utd midfielder and failed to see how the transfer made any sense for the club at this moment in time.
Meanwhile, others refused to believe that the report had any truth to it at all.
Let's just file this in the 'utter garbage' folder along with the Matic story shall we…

Spurs Web Opinion
The only possible reason Mourinho could be in for Fellaini is he could potentially view him as a backup centre forward option for Harry Kane. We do lack an option to go direct if we are chasing games since letting Llorente leave in the summer. However, despite his aerial prowess and ability to hold the ball up, I am not sure Fellaini is the right man for Spurs.
