Tottenham Hotspur are looking for additional reinforcements for the upcoming 2020/21 season. Of course, Jose Mourinho has already managed to secure a couple of solid signatures but there’s still more work to be done.
For starters, Spurs must add more firepower to their forward line. Harry Kane is the main star of the team and undoubtedly the most important piece of the Special One’s jigsaw. However, he needs more competition and more support as well.
According to an exclusive report from the Daily Star, Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa would be open to moving to the Premier League outfit in the ongoing summer transfer window. Diego Simeone has put the striker on sale and it seems Mourinho could be interested.
Of course, the duo worked together at Chelsea so the Portuguese manager knows what kind of a player he’d be getting.
The Spaniard only has a year left on his contract so this transfer would indeed be a cheap one despite the player’s obvious quality and pedigree. But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.
With only five goals to his name in the previous campaign and questionable fitness levels, Costa is not the machine he used to be. Still, Mourinho knows how to work with veterans and how to bring the best out of them.
And there’s no denying that the 31-year-old would give them more aggression and more bite in attack. Not to mention that’s the perfect solution to keeping Kane on his toes for next season.
Costa is not the only option Spurs are considering. The likes of Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson are also reportedly on the radar but Atletico Madrid’s striker does seem like a much better option.
He’d be cheap, reliable and hungry to win. This is usually a great recipe for success and could be exactly what Mourinho needs to take Spurs to the next level.
