Tottenham boss Mourinho (& Santos) plan Maignan move

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is ready for another raid on Lille.

Having prised coaching pair Joao Sacramento and Nuno Santos away since taking charge of Spurs, Mourinho now has his sights set on LOSC goalkeeper Mike Maignan.

Le 10 Sport says Mourinho sees Maignan as an eventual successor for Spurs captain Hugo Lloris and plans to move for the France international this summer.

And with former Lille keeper coach Nuno Santos now at Tottenham, there's an obvious connection that Mourinho can exploit.

Any sale will represent good business for Lille, having signed Maignan five years ago from PSG for a cut-price €1m.
