Tottenham fans react to reports suggesting Mourinho wants a striker and a defender

Tottenham might need to sell to buy.

Jose Mourinho wants to kickstart his spending at Tottenham Hotspur with a new striker and a defender, according to The Telegraph.

Mourinho has given his preference on new signings after being told he might have to sell to buy. He is ready to let Christian Eriksen leave and believe this could fund two new signings.

The priority for Mourinho is to bring in a new striker to provide cover for Harry Kane. While Kane continues to lead the line, Mourinho does not believe Spurs adequately replaced Fernando Llorente.

Son Heung-Min, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura and Troy Parrott are options if Kane is injured or rested. However, Mourinho will target a back-up striker when the January window opens.

He also wants a new defender. In all of Mourinho’s first three games, Tottenham have conceded twice. While they have won all three, the leaky defence is starting to worry Mourinho, who is notorious for keeping things tight.

Spurs fans have taken to Twitter after hearing that Mourinho wants a striker and a defender. Here are some tweets about his January plan.
