Tottenham Hotspur’s possible swoop for Queens Park Rangers midfielder Eberechi Eze could reportedly be halted by Jose Mourinho’s arrival.
The Sun understands that the 21-year-old had been scouted extensively under the Mauricio Pochettino regime ahead of a potential January bid.
However, Mourinho has gone into Spurs making it clear that he is happy with the squad he has inherited and not desperate to make additions.
The former Chelsea manager will have money made available to him next month but is keen to take the time to assess the priority areas for recruitment and not jump straight into the market, according to The Sun.
One area where Mourinho may be happy with his lot is the No.10 position. He has immediately revitalized Dele Alli and also has Giovani Lo Celso waiting for a chance and Christian Eriksen, for now, who can play there.
That may permanently kill our interest in Eze who has scored seven goals and assisted four more in 19 league games as a No.10 for QPR this season.
The Sun adds that Chelsea, West Ham United and Leicester City are also monitoring Eze, so he may still get his Premier League move in January.
