Tottenham Hotspur are planning an £80m raid on Bournemouth to sign Callum Wilson and David Brooks, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is eager to sign the Bournemouth pair to add more depth to his squad.

The same article states that the Argentine coach wants to sign Wilson to provide cover for England captain Harry Kane.

According to the same story, Brooks would be able to provide more numbers in what is described as an already stretched Tottenham midfielder.

The same report goes on to say that Pochettino is likely to stay at Spurs beyond the summer following the north London outfit’s excellent season.

Tottenham finished in fourth place in the Premier League table in the 2018-19 season to secure a place in the Champions League.

Spurs managed to beat Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and reigning Premier League champions Manchester City to reach the Champions League last four.

Pochettino’s men came from 3-0 down against Ajax on aggregate to rescue a 3-3 draw and progress on away goals thanks to Lucas Moura’s hat-trick in the second leg in Amsterdam.

Tottenham will take on their Premier League rivals Liverpool FC in the Champions League final in Madrid on Saturday as Spurs look to win the competition for the first time.
