Spurs boss Mourinho faces battle to convince Maignan

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has placed Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan top of his shopping list.

Tuttosport says France international Maignan is Tottenham's priority this summer. The plan of José Mourinho is to make him No2 to Hugo Lloris who, at 33, would gradually be phased out and replaced by Maignan.

The stumbling block is whether Maignan will agree to leave as outright No1 at LOSC, to sit on the bench in London.

At Spurs, Maignan would be reunited with his former LOSC keeper coach, Nuno Santos.
