Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is optimistic he will have a new striker in his squad by the end of the transfer window on Monday.

Spurs have reportedly made a breakthrough in their bid to add another striking option to support Harry Kane after being linked with multiple players across Europe.

Mourinho is hopeful the club will make a signing, but regardless of the outcome he is thrilled by the support the club have given him in the market, with Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty among their additions.

Asked if a new striker would come in, Mourinho said: “I am optimistic, but more than that I like the feeling that we are trying everything to do it.

“My club and structure is trying everything to do it. If we succeed, great, I believe so and if we don’t, that’s football.”

Speaking ahead of Tottenham’s home Europa League play-off tie against Maccabi Haifa on Thursday, Mourinho also heaped praise on midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

A marquee signing last season, Ndombele initially struggled but has impressed of late and starred in Tuesday’s EFL Cup penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea, which is part of a frantic run of fixtures.

“Tanguy is playing amazing,” said Mourinho. “I am very, very happy.

“You can feel the happiness. Physically he has to be better, he will be better. But if you compare this Tanguy with last season’s Tanguy, there is no point in comparing.

“But he can get better, he can be really phenomenal.”

Spurs, who have also been in negotiations with Inter over defender Milan Skriniar, play Mourinho’s former club Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.
