How much Jose will get to spend this summer, five players he’s targeting
By Ron Carne -

Jose Mourinho will reportedly be handed a significant transfer budget this summer to help him stamp his mark on the Tottenham squad.

The 57-year-old was appointed as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor in November, and after a relatively quiet January transfer window, he’ll get a chance to make bigger changes this summer.

As per BBC Sport, the Portuguese tactician has already stressed the need for a more balanced squad at Tottenham in light of their injury troubles this season, and he could get the backing from chairman Daniel Levy to ensure there is one moving forward.

According to Bild, as re-reported by The Express, Mourinho could get £135m to spend this summer, and it’s suggested that he already has five players in mind in terms of who he would like to bring in.

Marcel Sabitzer, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Youcef Atal, Jamal Lewis and Eder Militao are all said to be on his transfer shortlist, in an apparent bid to improve in various departments in the squad.

Time will tell if Mourinho manages to bring in all of his preferred targets in one transfer window, but as they hope to salvage something from this season if it resumes, changes may be needed to help them back to competing again.

Spurs disappointingly crashed out of the FA Cup and Champions League prior to the suspension of fixtures, while as things stand, they sit down in eighth place in the Premier League table and seven points adrift of Chelsea in fourth spot.
