Tottenham boss Mourinho chasing AC Milan midfielder Calhanoglu

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is chasing AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.

Aksam says Calhanoglu was left out of the squad for Milan's recent matches against SPAL and Udinese, helping pique Mourinho's interest in getting a deal for the Turkey international over the line.

Tottenham have discovered Calhanoglu is available for £17m (€20m) and are ready to pay that fee in full.

Mourinho is said to be in favour of the prospective transfer, with the 25-year-old seen as the ideal candidate to fill Christian Eriksen's boots.

Calhanoglu, who has made 18 Serie A appearances so far this season, was left out of Milan's squad for their recent wins over SPAL and Udinese.
