Tottenham are looking at signing Norwich centre-back Ben Godfrey, reports have claimed, as Jose Mourinho eyes his first transfer deal as Spurs boss and looks to bolster his leaky defence ahead of the second half of the season.

According to Football Insider, Spurs are preparing to move for the youngster when the transfer reopens in January.

The north London club made a move for the star in the summer before he ended up putting pen to paper on a new five-year contract.

He is valued at around £25million by the Canaries, who know they will not be able to keep hold of him forever.

Tottenham are going to be in the market for a centre-back in the coming months.

Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are currently set to leave the club upon the expiry of their contracts next summer.

If things do not change, then both Belgians will need replacing which is a big ask for Mourinho and Daniel Levy.

There are early suggestions that both could be convinced to stay following the arrival of The Special One.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Alderweireld has already indicated that he is ready to open talks over a new contract.

Inter Milan are thought to be monitoring Vertonghen’s situation and could snap him up on a free transfer.

Stars out are out of contract next summer will be free to talk with other clubs in January.

“We are a different club at this level,” Mourinho told Sport TV.

“We are not a club that is going to make big transfers in the market, nor is it going towards players who are already developed or at a certain level of expectation, also economically.

“I would definitely say no because Bruno is a player of a level and a value that is not for us.”

Last summer Spurs tried to sign Bruno Fernandes from Sporting, and now Mourinho has ruled Tottenham out of the running.
