Mourinho makes Bournemouth defender Ake priority Spurs target

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is ready to move for Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake this summer.

Voetbalzone says Mourinho has identified Ake as a priority target for Spurs ahead of next season.

The Portuguese worked with Ake at Chelsea and sees the Dutchman as a replacement for Bosman prospect Jan Vertonghen.

Ake is rated at €55m by Bournemouth - a figure Mourinho believes represents good value.

The defender's current deal runs to 2022.
