Jose Mourinho Sets Sights On Tottenham Hotspur Duo
Jose Mourinho has his eyes on Tottenham Hotspur stars Eric Dier and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as he prepares to take charge of Roma in the summer.
Tottenham sacked Mourinho just over two weeks ago and he even signed on with a national radio station in England before agreeing to move to Italy in the summer.
And it has been claimed he is already planning to raid Tottenham for players in the next transfer window.
According to Italian outlet Calciomercato.com, Mourinho has the names of Spurs stars Dier and Hojbjerg on his shortlist of targets ahead of the summer.
The soon-to-be Roma coach has been closely studying the Giallorossi squad and what he will require in the next window.
And the Portuguese want reinforcements in midfield and defense, with Dier and Hojbjerg top targets.
But it is still unclear how much money he could have to spend at Roma, who are not likely to be in next season’s Champions League.
Spurs are also looking for a new manager and may be unlikely to take a decision on the future of any player until they get a new man in as Mourinho’s successor.
