Tottenham are looking to sign not, not two, but three new forwards before the end of the week, while Bruno Fernandes is reported to be set for a strange move to Barcelona that would see him first loaned to Valencia, according to Tuesday’s Euro Paper Talk.
MOURINHO MAKES SEFEROVIC A PRIORITY SIGNING FOR TOTTENHAM
Tottenham are plotting an approach to sign Benfica’s Swiss striker Haris Seferovic and want him to form part of a new-look three-man attack at the club, claim reports in Portugal.
With a €31m deal for PSV winger Steven Bergwijn expected to be rubber-stamped later on Tuesday, Jose Mourinho has turned his attention towards adding even more goals to his side by adding, not one, but two more new additions.
According to O Jogo, Mourinho has made the signing of Benfica forward Seferovic his next priority before the window shuts on Friday.
The Swiss striker has netted a pretty impressive 34 goals in 79 appearances in the Primiera Liga since a move from Eintracht Frankfurt in summer 2017 and is thought to be valued at around the €35m mark by the Lisbon giants.
However, the player has dropped out of favour recently, starting more matches from the bench, and it’s thought Benfica are open to offers for the 27-year-old, with West Ham also believed to be keen on a swoop.
Mourinho, meanwhile, has also stepped up his bid to lure Krzysztof Piatek to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium having reportedly held a video conference call with the Polish striker to sell him his vision for him at Spurs.
That update comes via Sport.pl and they claim the north London outfit will submit a formal offer on Tuesday for the striker said to be valued at €30m by AC Milan.
With Harry Kane likely to be sidelined until the latter stages of the season, it seems like Mourinho is looking to replace his goals output for his side with a new three-pronged strikeforce.
