Mourinho plans £120M spend on Spurs defence

Jose Mourinho is planning a defensive revolution at Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The Portuguese has Spurs within are four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, who they will face at Stamford Bridge on February 22.

Even if the club do not qualify for the Champions League next season, Mourinho will be given a huge war chest to buy reinforcements.

The Daily Express says Mourinho is planning to spend £120m to reinvigorate his ageing defence.

Centre-backs Nathan Ake (Bournemouth) and Ruben Dias (Benfica) are at the top of Mourinho's wishlist.

Spurs are also interested in young fullbacks Ben Chilwell (Leicester City), Max Aarons (Norwich City) and Youcef Atal (OGC Nice).
