Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho, is thought to be pushing Daniel Levy and his board to get a deal for Real Madrid’s Eder Militao over the line.
Militao has emerged as a target for Mourinho and Spurs in the last week or so, with the north London outfit said to be keen on bringing in a new defender during January.
And according to a report from Football365, it is claimed Mourinho is now actively pressing the Spurs heirarchy to conclude a deal to bring the Brazilian to the Premier League.
Militao is thought to be open to a move to England, with Madrid also said to be willing to let him out on an initial loan deal. Indeed, reports earlier in the week suggested Spurs could pay a £2.5m loan fee for the defender.
The 22-year-old defender was highly sought after when he signed for Madrid initially. His current Los Blancos teammate, Casemeiro, praised the club at the time, claiming that ‘half of Europe’ we keen on landing Militao.

Mourinho is never one to rest on his laurels and he is definitely pushing for the Spurs board to back him here in his pursuit of glory.
The Premier League title is still not out of the picture, while the club have a great chance of winning the League Cup and also giving the Europa League a good go.
Mourinho will want to bring silverware to Spurs. He prides himself on being a winning manager and the addition of players like Militao will only enhance his case. However, it’s worth noting that Alasdair Gold has said Militao arriving is unlikely.
