Jose Mourinho outlines Tottenham’s plans for summer transfer window

Jose Mourinho has insisted he has no plans to overhaul his Tottenham squad during the summer transfer window.

Mourinho bolstered his squad with the signings of Steven Bergwijn and Gedson Fernandes in January, while also making Giovani Lo Celso's loan move from Real Betis permanent.

With Spurs currently five points outside the Premier League's top four and in danger of missing out on next season's Champions League, further additions are expected during the summer.

And although Mourinho admitted that he will need to strengthen his squad with further additions at the end of the season, he said that there will not be significant changes.

"Massive changes? No. Not massive changes," the Tottenham boss said ahead of Wednesday's FA Cup fifth-round tie against Norwich.

"First of all because that is not what we think we need. Secondly because of the profile of the club. Third because of what the market is and year after year after year is more difficult.

"So I am not thinking of an overhaul. Of course we need to make our squad better, that is obvious."

Mourinho also expects recent arrival Gedson Fernandes to continue improving at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Fernandes, who joined from Benfica in an initial 18-month loan deal with an option to buy, has made seven appearances for Spurs in all competitions since making the move from Portugal.

And although the 21-year-old has started just twice – against Leipzig in the Champions League and Southampton in the FA Cup – Mourinho said he is adapting well to life in North London and will receive further chances to impress.
