TOTTENHAM are reportedly eyeing FOUR transfers this summer – including Southampton star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
The Standard claims Jose Mourinho wants reinforcements to build a “more balanced” squad after securing Europa League football with a sixth-place finish on Sunday.

The Special One does not have an awful lot of money to work with after Spurs were hit especially badly by the coronavirus pandemic.
However, Mourinho insists he has been promised that star names including Harry Kane will not be sold.
And the Portuguese tactician will be able to add to his squad for the right price.
It’s reckoned Saints midfielder Hojbjerg could be the first arrival this summer despite interest from Everton.

Spurs have also enquired about Beijing Guoan’s South Korean centre-back Kim-min Jae after bidding farewell to Jan Vertonghen.
And versatile Atalanta full-back Timothy Castagne could yet make the move to north London.
Mourinho would also like to add another forward to support Kane.
And it’s claimed he sees Bournemouth’s David Brooks as a viable option following their relegation to the Championship, even though the Welshman has been primarily used as an inside-forward on the right wing.
While Cherries striker Callum Wilson is another option.
However, an influx of fresh faces means there will be exits too.
Oliver Skipp, Troy Parrott and Ryan Sessegnon could be loaned out to gain vital first-team experience.
But Danny Rose, Kyle Walker-Peters, Juan Foyth and Serge Aurier are all expected to be sold.
