Tottenham Hotspur 'given green light to sign Willian Jose'

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been given the go-ahead to sign Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose.

The North London outfit have been linked with a host of forwards as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his attacking options during the 2020-21 campaign.

Torino's Andrea Belotti, Watford stalwart Troy Deeney and Braga's Paulinho have all been mentioned as possible solutions for Mourinho, who supposedly wants to provide a backup and more competition for Harry Kane up top.

Spurs may have received a boost in their attempts to land a new striker, with Spanish outlet El Desmarque claiming that Sociedad are willing to let Jose depart.

The 28-year-old, who has recently tested positive for coronavirus, scored 11 goals in La Liga last season and still has just under four years left to run on his current deal with Sociedad.

Tottenham fell to defeat in their opening game of the new Premier League season as Dominic Calvert-Lewin's header saw Everton take all three points in North London on Sunday.
