Tottenham’s new boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly submitted a list of transfer targets to his managers as he seeks to improve on the club’s poor start to the campaign.
Tottenham Spurs sacked Mauricio Pochettino earlier this week and announced Jose Mourinho as his replacement on Wednesday morning, and it seems like the Portuguese tactician is now preparing to make the improvements needed to get the team climbing up the Premier League table.
According to Don Balon, one of the players on Jose Mourinho’s list is West Ham defensive midfielder Declan Rice, who could cost around £38.5million.
Declan Rice has shone with the Hammers to prove himself as one of the most exciting young prospects in Europe in his position.
It’s also previously seen him linked with the Red Devils – for much more money; it must be said – in a report from Goal.
Jose Mourinho would surely love to beat his former club to this quality signing, with Declan Rice, a player who could clearly improve most top sides.
The 20-year-old starlet would be an ideal long-term replacement for Nemanja Matic at Old Trafford, so Jose Mourinho could do well to disrupt United’s plans and boost his own team’s hopes of getting back into the running for a top-four place.
