Tottenham had many ups and downs during the 2019/20 Premier League season. But the campaign undoubtedly wasn’t the one that was expected after Champions League final.

Jose Mourinho helped the club to finish sixth in the league and earn Europa League qualification. However, there are a lot more expected from the Portuguese coach ahead of the next season. Therefore, Spurs should change the squad and welcome new players.

Chelsea star Willian, who is out of contract after the season, has been linked with a move to Tottenham. Meanwhile, according to the Daily Echo, Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has now rejected approaches from European sides because he’s set on joining Tottenham. Watford star Callum Wilson has also been linked with the club.
