Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has been given a boost ahead of the summer transfer window on his top priority. Spurs have endured an up-and-down season during Mourinho’s first full campaign in charge.

After a big summer of change last year which saw seven new faces join either on a permanent basis or on loan, Tottenham began the season in great form.

An 11-game unbeaten run helped push Spurs towards the top of the table heading into Christmas and were touted as possible title contenders.

But results soon took a turn for the worse as they plummeted down the table, although four wins in their last six games has helped push Tottenham back into contention for a top-four finish.

Qualifying for next year’s Champions League could be crucial for Spurs financially with Mourinho reportedly already drawing up a list of targets.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Tanguy Ndombele have established themselves as regular starters for Mourinho, but the third midfield slot remains up for grabs and it appears as though Mourinho wants to bring someone in this summer to fill that role.

RB Leipzig captain Marcel Sabitzer has been strongly linked with a move to north London for well over a year now.

And his future at the Bundesliga outfit remains uncertain with his current deal expiring in 2022.

Now, according to SportBILD, Sabitzer has told Leipzig officials that he is hoping to receive an offer from the Premier League this season.

It is claimed that Sabitzer is holding off on talks for an extension with Leipzig with the inclination that he favours a move to Tottenham.

The report also points out that Mourinho is personally pushing Tottenham to try and sign the midfielder.

But speaking back in February, Mourinho indicated that the Tottenham board have told him he will not have bags of money to spend this summer.

“No, when I came to the club, the club was very open and very honest with me,” he said.

“I’m not going now to try to compare my situation with other clubs because the club was very open with me.

“I knew that I was going to come to a different reality. A big club, no doubt about that, not one second, but a club with a different profile in terms of being or not being a candidate to win competition A or B, a club not being able to resolve problems with a cheque.

“The club made the possible efforts in the summer to improve the team and I’m not complaining about anything, I just do my work the best I can and that’s it.”
