Les Ferdinand explains why Jose Mourinho will get his Tottenham transfer wish

Jose Mourinho will be granted his wish to spend this summer by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

That’s the view of former Spurs striker Les Ferdinand with Mourinho having taken over at the north London club in November.

The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss brought in Steven Bergwijn and Gedson Fernandes (loan) in January while also making the signing of Giovani Lo Celso permanent.

But Ferdinand expects Mourinho to want to be busy again come the summer, especially considering the injuries Spurs have suffered in attack.

“He has come in and taken over a team that Pochettino has put together,” Ferdinand, speaking on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK, told Starsport.

“He’s not put his stamp on what he wants to do and how he wants to do it.

“He’s not bought the players that he deems he requires for how he wants to play.

“He will definitely stay around and want one or two windows, maybe more than that, to bring the players he believes will make Tottenham the winning team he wants them to be.

“When you bring in a manager of Mourinho’s ilk and you see what he’s done in the past, wherever he has gone he has spent money.

“There was no point bringing him in if you didn’t want to spend money so I think Daniel Levy will be expecting Mourinho to come to him in the summer saying he wants to spend this summer.”

Ferdinand was speaking ahead of this year’s Football to Amsterdam cycle ride in aid of Prostate Cancer UK, which takes place from June 5-7.

Ferdinand said: “One in eight men in the UK will be affected by prostate cancer in their lifetime.

“But as a black man, my risk is even greater. One in four will be affected, and if there is a history of the disease in the family – like mine – those odds are even shorter.

“I’ll admit, prostate cancer wasn’t on my radar a decade ago; I knew nothing about it at all. Now I do. I lost my grandfather to prostate cancer and it’s also affected other members of my family too.
