Despite recently claiming he does not need any new players at Tottenham Hotspur, Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified his first transfer target for his new club.
Upon his appointment, the 56-year-old insisted he was happy with the squad he inherited, and that he does not feel any signing is necessary.
However, Football Insider has now reported that Mourinho is interested in signing 21-year-old Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey.
The young centre-back has impressed so far in his debut Premier League campaign, and also played a vital role in his team's promotion from the EFL Championship.
It has been claimed that Spurs would have to spend somewhere in the region of £25 million (R475 million) to secure his services as Mourinho looks to strengthen the defence at his disposal.
First-choice defenders Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are both out of contract at the end of the season, but that could change due to the recent change of management at the club.
Godfrey, an England U21 international, has played 90 minutes in all of the Canaries' 14 league matches this season.
