Lille president Lopez: I know Spurs boss Mourinho likes Soumare very much

Lille president Gerard Lopez says Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is a fan of young midfielder Boubakary Soumare.

A regular at Lille games while out of work, Mourinho saw plenty of Soumare before taking the Spurs job last month.

Lopez revealed: "Soumare? It is true that there's a lot of interest. From Spain, from Italy…

"The interest of José Mourinho? I know he likes him very much, yes. No, (for Tottenham) this is not the priority target, there are five, six clubs that are interested in him.

"Afterwards, he must also be interested in the club so we will see."
