Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly indicated that he wants to sign up to five new players during the next transfer window.
Given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, it has been claimed that Spurs will have to focus their attention on free agents this summer.
Unless there are sufficient player sales, that would appear to leave the North London outfit limited in the market after a below-par Premier League campaign.
However, according to 90 min, Mourinho has informed chairman Daniel Levy that he would like to freshen up his squad later in 2020.
Despite an acknowledgement that funds are tight, the Portuguese is said to have his eyes on players out of contract and available on loan.
Spurs had hoped to sign Thomas Meunier, only for the right-back to be confirmed as a Borussia Dortmund player on Thursday.
