Fancied by Mourinho in 2018, could Nabil Fekir be the man to lift Tottenham?

Jose Mourinho will go in search of additions for his Tottenham squad this summer and Nabil Fekir is a player who he has admired before.

During his time as Manchester United boss, Mourinho spoke to Lyon about the forward joining him at Old Trafford (The Sun).

Attacking talent will certainly be on the agenda for Tottenham. Prior to the break, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min’s injuries left Spurs in limbo and strength in depth will be the order of the window.

Last summer Fekir did take the plunge and leave Lyon, agreeing on a five-year deal with Real Betis, costing £17.7 million (BBC).

During his first season with the La Liga outfit, the £255,000-a-week star has scored seven goals and registered seven assists.

For the majority of the campaign, Betis languished in the bottom half, however, and Fekir will surely fancy a move to a bigger club and one playing in Europe.


Mourinho fancied him once before and it’ll be interesting to see whether he might try and sign him again.

His current club will probably want some sort of profit but that could still make him affordable for Tottenham.

Fekir typically operates either on the right-wing or as a No.10, making him an ideal, versatile option.

The player is at a nice age to still develop, had 23 caps for his country and boasts the attributes to make the best out of a move to the Premier League.

Mourinho may have moved on from his flirtatious affair with Fekir in 2018, with other players more prominent on his shortlist.

Fekir can score goals, create them and is a strong player. With that in mind, the Frenchman is exactly the sort of player who could light up the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
