Tottenham target fires transfer hint to Daniel Levy

Mourinho

Tottenham started the resumption of the Premier League with a 1-1 draw against Jose Mourinho's former employers, Manchester United.

For Spurs, it was a solid result, but it could have been so much more.

A typical leaky defence under Mourinho, one that's kept just two clean sheets in the league this calendar year, conceded late on.

It was a Bruno Fernandes penalty that dealt a blow to Spurs' hopes of securing Champions League football.

Though, on Tuesday evening, they have a chance to bounce back against struggling West Ham.

Given their defensive record, you'd think that recruits would be needed in that area of the pitch. However, attackers have also been linked - namely Jeremie Boga.

The Sassuolo winger was touted with a Tottenham switch back in March and has now issued what is essentially a come and get me plea to Daniel Levy.

Jeremie Boga

The former Chelsea attacker was speaking about his future during an interview with French outlet TF1 where he claimed he could leave Serie A for elsewhere.

Previously, Dortmund, Valencia and Mourinho's side have been linked with signing the Ivory Coast international.

During the interview he said: "I am ready for a new chapter.

"Nothing is definitive yet. I spoke to coach Roberto De Zerbi to have a better understanding of the situation. I am ready for a new challenge, whether it is in Italy or abroad, but I could remain at Sassuolo too.

"I have no regrets, as I made the right decision in leaving Chelsea. I think that was the best choice I could’ve made in the circumstances.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

It's questionable as to whether Tottenham need another winger after signing Steven Bergwijn in January, but Boga would be a fine addition.

He could even be Mourinho's new Eden Hazard if he lives up to the expectations he's set.

Boga has fine opinions of himself, suggesting he had what it takes to reach a similar level to the Real Madrid forward

The 23-year-old once declared: "Hazard is definitely stronger than me, but not in my head, because I know my talent and I know that over time I can reach that level."

It was a pretty strong statement to make, especially considering he's now playing for Sassuolo. However, there are clear comparisons to make.

The number 7 has eight goals this term, possessing the ability to beat defenders at will. In 2019/20, he's performed a considerable 4.3 successful dribbles per match.

That's ahead of Hazard this campaign who's recorded 3.7 successful dribbles per outing.
