Bent backing Spurs to sign Bournemouth striker Wilson

Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent has backed the club to sign Callum Wilson.

Jose Mourinho is considering pursuing the Bournemouth striker to bolster his attacking options.

"They need someone who's an adequate backup to Harry Kane and Callum Wilson's smart enough to understand to know he's not going to go down there and play straight away," he told Football Insider.

"If Harry Kane gets injured and Wilson goes and starts smashing the goals in, we've got a fight on our hands.

"I like what Mourinho's doing there."
