Spurs will aim to wear their end-of-season form into the new campaign after eventually finishing in a disappointing sixth position.
Four wins in their last six matches have helped secure Europa League qualification. But expectations at Tottenham are higher after several superb seasons under former boss Mauricio Pochettino.
As such, Mourinho acted quickly in the transfer market, Southampton midfielder general Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg signed for around £ 15million a fortnight ago.
Former England goalkeeper Joe Hart has also arrived, but the summer business seems far from over.
The sun (via FootballInsider) report that Tottenham “had talks” with Leicester City regarding Gray Demarai.
The 24-year-old has been with The Foxes since 2016 after making his breakthrough with the Birmingham City boyhood club.
But with only 12 months left on his current contract, Leicester could be open for sale to avoid the risk of losing it for nothing next year.
Tottenham are described as being ‘eager’ to secure his services and have been stalking him for some time.
In order to accelerate the movement, Mourinho would have “discussed directly with Gray”
Tottenham have relied heavily on Harry Kane’s goals for a number of seasons, but the addition of Gray would provide additional reinforcements in the advanced ranks.
Expert warns of Mourinho move
Liverpool should avoid sending rising star striker Rhian Brewster on loan to Tottenham and choose a side where he will have more playing time, according to an expert.
Brewster recently joined his Liverpool team-mates after a mind-blowing loan from Swansea. The 20-year-old has scored 11 goals in 22 games to guide the Swans through the Championship play-offs.
Indeed, he continued such blistering form in the preseason. After scoring against Stuttgart on Saturday, he came off the bench to save Liverpool a draw mardi.
However, it’s still unclear if Brewster will stay at Anfield, as he did for the first half of last season.
Reports suggest that Tottenham are one of the parties considering a loan transfer, but Darren Bent insists Liverpool should look elsewhere.
