Jose Mourinho is reportedly hoping to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey before the October 5 transfer deadline and the 23-year-old is keen on moving to the Premier League.

Mourinho has publicly expressed his desire to bring in another attacker who can compliment Harry Kane.

Daniel Levy is willing to back his manager but there is a stumbling block in any potential move for Bailey.

Everton have also been watching the Leverkusen winger and are considering their own approach.

Bailey is aware of the interest and has told club bosses of his wish to follow in Kai Havertz's footsteps by moving to the Premier League.

According to Sky Sports, Leverkusen will demand a £40million fee for the Jamaica international.

Spurs will struggle to meet that sum without offloading any players.

It is a positive sign that both the player and club want to make the transfer happen and the ball is in the north Londoners' court.

Mourinho has spoken to his superiors and made it crystal clear exactly what he needs to challenge for a top-four place.

"I want to make it very clear that the club - if you want to call it the club or the structure above me - knows I need a striker and they also want a striker," he said.

"So it’s not for me to convince him, it’s for him to convince me. If he says, 'I don't want to go because I don’t want to be in a squad where we have Harry Kane and Sonny, Lamela, Lucas, I don’t want to go to that squad', then goodbye.

"You look to all the other top clubs and they have many options as centre-forwards and that question doesn’t appear."
