Tottenham are considering making a bid for Porto midfielder Luis Diaz.
The Columbia international only joined the Primeira Liga side last summer, but he has made a big impression in his first season in European football, scoring 12 goals, primarily from a wide left position, and providing three assists.
Jose Mourinho has been told that he will not need to sell any key players this summer, despite the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the club, although there will likely to some departures amongst fringe squad players.
Instead, they will need to look for good value buys, and a creative midfielder like Diaz, who is expected to cost around £12 million, would appear into that category.
Porto, who have financial problems of their own, may be willing to sell, and would stand to make a substantial profit on a player that they bought for £6.5 million from Junior.
However, transfer funds are likely to be limited, precluding a complete overhaul of the team.
