Tottenham agree £15m deal for summer target paving the way for star’s exit

Posted by

Although the deal has yet to be signed and sealed, Jose Mourinho is on the verge of securing one of his summer targets after a fee was agreed with his current employers.

Tottenham and Wolverhampton Wanderers have been in talks for a while over highly-rated full-back, Matt Doherty, and, according to the Daily Mail, those conversations accelerated on Friday to the point where a £15m fee was rubber-stamped.

The player has been keen to link up with the Portuguese at White Hart Lane, and all that remains is for the 28-year-old to put pen to paper.

For his part, Mourinho would like to be able to offload the error-prone, Serge Aurier.

However, the club have yet to receive an offer in the region of £22m which is the valuation they’ve placed on the right-back.

Having sold Kyle Walker-Peters to Southampton, according to the Daily Mail, Mourinho was on the verge of being woefully short of full-back options.

With Doherty soon to be on board, the coach can approach the new campaign with confidence.
