Tottenham legend tips Mourinho to launch £30m bid for Aston Villa defender

Tottenham legend Darren Bent has tipped his former side to launch a £30 million raid for Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings when the transfer market reopens. Mings has been one of the standout players during Villa's bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League in 2019-20. The 27-year-old contributed two goals and two assists in 32 appearances. But it has been reported that Villa will be forced to sell Mings if they fail to beat the drop, with a crucial final day showdown against West Ham likely to have a huge bearing on his future. Bent believes Jose Mourinho will have to strengthen his options at the back or else risk remaining far too reliant on Toby Alderweireld. The former Tottenham striker told Football Insider: “Alderweireld is a massive player for them and if they can keep him fit, great. The toughy with Spurs is – and this is where the difficulty is going to come with this team – where can they go and strengthen and where are they going to find that player? “For them, I thought well you need defenders, I thought what about Tyrone Mings going from Aston Villa to Spurs? £30 million, natural left-sided player, he’s got a little bit of pace about him as well and so that could work. I’d be surprised if they’re not in the market for him.” Source: Goal
