Mourinho keen on Inter defender Godin

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is interested in Inter Milan defender Diego Godin, according to the Daily Mirror.

Godin, 34, was targeted by Mourinho at Manchester United two years ago and was tipped to move to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid.

Instead he signed a new contract with the Spanish club and later moved to Inter.

He is potentially available again this summer and the Mirror say Mourinho wants to take him to north London.

Mourinho is looking to bring in defenders amid uncertainty over the futures of a number of Spurs players, including Jan Vertonghen.

Belgium centre-back Vertonghen is coming towards the end of his contract at Tottenham and is expected to move on this summer.

Vertonghen told Belgian show De Kleedkamer: “I’m in a process right now that I have to grab a piece of paper and write down the pros and cons of the options I will have soon.

“I will really have to decide what I want in my career. In three to four years, I will normally return to the place where I will likely settle down.

“I have to start thinking about where I still want to live, what language I want to learn, what culture I still want to live in.”
