Report: Spurs 23-year-old not in Jose Mourinho’s plans, talks have taken place over potential move

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luke Amos is reportedly not in Jose Mourinho’s first-team plans and is a target for Middlesbrough, according to the Northern Echo.

The 23-year-old came through the Spurs ranks and broke into Mauricio Pochettino’s senior side during the 2018-19 pre-season.

He then made his senior debut in the first Premier League game of the campaign as a substitute against Newcastle United.

Amos looked as though he would go on to have his best season at the club, but he suffered an ACL injury which kept him sidelined for much of the campaign.

In 2019-20, Spurs loaned the midfielder to fellow London side Queens Park Rangers, where he made 34 Championship appearances plus one in the League Cup.

 

Although Football London claimed in April that Mourinho would take a closer look at Amos, the Northern Echo now reports that the Portuguese has instructed the club to move him on.

It is also reported that Boro’s recruitment team have discussed Amos’ position with the Tottenham hierarchy and are hoping to pull off a permanent deal, though QPR are also said to be keen.

TBR View:

Tottenham could do with bolstering their defence – in particularly the left side – while defensive midfield is also a position which could be strengthened in wake of Wanyama’s departure.

But although Amos has done well for QPR this year – in defensive midfield, central defence and even at left-back and the right wing – it looks as though he’s on his way out of N17, which would be a shame.
