Last week, José Mourinho publicly admitted he wants Tottenham Hotspur to sign a new striker this summer. 

Since then, Real Sociedad’s Willian José has been one of the strikers linked with a move to the north London club.

According to Algemeen Dagblad, the Portuguese tactician has now ‘shifted his focus’ to Eintracht Frankfurt’s Bas Dost.

It’s claimed that Spurs have a ‘serious interest’ in the 31-year-old as they are in the market looking for a backup for Harry Kane.

The Premier League side have had their eyes on the Dutchman for sometime, with interest picking up in the past few days.

Club Brugge also had an interest in Dost, but he has turned out to be an expensive option for the Belgian club. 

As per the report, the attacker’s transfer fee ‘will not be a problem’ for Tottenham. There’s no mention of what will be the figure needed for Mourinho’s side to sign the former Sporting frontman. 

Dost is the first choice striker at Eintracht Frankfurt, but he will have to settle for a backup role if he decides to swap the German club for Spurs. 

AD raises the question of whether or not he is ready to play second fiddle to Kane at Tottenham.

Dost finished last season with 10 goals and two assists in 32 appearances.
