Tottenham manager José Mourinho ‘appreciates’ Inter Milan’s Diego Godín, but the player is not a serious transfer target for the club at this moment in time.

Godín is expected to leave the Serie A club just a year after arriving in a move from Spanish side Atlético Madrid, having found himself increasingly out of the picture under Antonio Conte.

A move to the Premier League has been heavily mooted, with Tottenham named as a potential destination on several occasions.

They are set to lose Jan Vertonghen this summer when the Belgian’s contract expires, and it was felt that Godín could be an option to replace him.

Tuttomercatoweb say that isn’t the case, though, insisting that Tottenham were ‘never really interested’ in the veteran defender.

They explain that why ‘England called’ Tottenham were never truly interested and suggesting there was any ‘real interest’ is a risky move.

While Mourinho ‘appreciates his great career’ it seems his attention will be elsewhere if he wants to add to his defence this summer.

Whether they will want to remains to be seen, with it likely to depend heavily on Vertonghen, who at this moment looks likely to leave.
