Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho identifies second signing after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg transfer agreed. Spurs’ transfer kitty was boosted after Mourinho’s men secured a top-six finish – and Europa League football for next season.

They have agreed a deal worth around £15m for the 25-year-old, who was also wanted by Everton. Spurs full-back Kyle Walker-Peters will move the other way for around £12m in a separate deal.

Following their move for Hojbjerg, Tottenham boss Mourinho is ready to sign a new striker as a back-up for Harry Kane. According to the Star, Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson tops their wishlist.

Spurs are the favourites to beat West Ham and Newcastle to the England international. Wilson, 28, has told Bournemouth he wants to leave following their relegation to the Championship. Cherries want around £20m for Wilson, however, Spurs are hoping to agree a cheaper deal.
