Tottenham chase Real Madrid’s Eder Militao with Jose Mourinho keen on out-of-favour Brazilian defender

TOTTENHAM are reportedly interested in a January deal for Real Madrid defender Eder Militao.

Jose Mourinho is eager to strengthen his options at the back and has set his sights on the out-of-favour Brazilian from his former club, according to AS.

Militao has been limited to three appearances in the current campaign.

He missed the opening weeks of the season through injury before testing positive for coronavirus.

Real Madrid signed Militao from Porto for around £45million in 2019 but he has failed to establish himself as a regular in Zinedine Zidane's team.

Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Nacho are ahead of him in the defensive pecking order.

He has another four-and-a-half years left to run on his contract at the Bernabeu so is unlikely to be sold on the cheap.

Tottenham have, unsurprisingly, been solid at the back in Mourinho's first full campaign in charge.

Spurs have conceded just 15 goals in 16 Premier League matches, with only Manchester City boasting a meaner record.

Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld have emerged as Mourinho's first-choice centre-back pairing, but summer signing Joe Rodon has limited top-tier experience while Davinson Sanchez has fallen out of favour.

Militao would also offer versatility to Tottenham.

The 22-year-old has experience of playing at right-back for Porto.

His versatility is likely to appeal with Spurs in the Premier League title race and looking to go deep into the latter stages of the Europa League.
