Jose Mourinho has identified the Wolves defender Matt Doherty as a key target with Spurs keen on sealing a £12 million deal (via Sky Sports).
Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur rebuild has already begun this summer with the signings of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart.
The Portuguese boss is reportedly eager to change the personality of the squad, bringing in leaders throughout the team.
The first two signings were a part of that and now, reports suggest that he has identified another target who fits the specification in Matt Doherty.
The Wolves right-back has become a key figure at Molineux, scoring seven goals in all competitions for the club last season.
That form and his leadership qualities have seemingly captured the interest of Mourinho with reports that Wolves would settle on a £12 million deal for the player.
Reportedly, this would free up Serge Aurier to leave the club just two-and-a-half years after his £23 million move from Paris Saint-Germain.
AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen are said to be keen on the Ivory Coast right-back who has two years left on his contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Matt Doherty would represent a fine piece of business for Tottenham Hotspur, particularly for the reported £12 million price tag. The right-back has plenty of experience but is still in his prime years at 28. He’s proven his quality on the pitch with Wolves, standing out despite their numerous big-name signings in recent years.
