    Levy could land Mourinho his next Costa with £5m Spurs swoop for “unbelievable” brute – opinion

    NFL Betting

    Tottenham Hotspur are in the mood to do business this summer transfer window and next on the list of priorities is surely a striker, of which one target makes a ton of sense…

    What’s the word?

    According to the Guardian, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is keen to bring Frankfurt attacker Bas Dost to the Premier League before next month’s deadline.

    They claim that the Bundesliga outfit value the 31-year-old veteran at just €5.5m (£5m), though the north Londoners would prefer a temporary loan agreement instead.

    Would Bas Dost be a bargain for Spurs at just £5m?

    Yes!

    No!

    No!

    Mourinho views Dost as the perfect alternative to Harry Kane due to his imposing physical stature. Having failed to sign a back-up option in January, Daniel Levy must deliver this window.

    Jose’s new Costa?

    If Spurs wanted to find a carbon-copy of Fernando Llorente, then they’re staring right at him in Dost. The former Netherlands international stands 6 foot 5 inches tall and is an absolute powerhouse.

    In the Bundesliga last season, the colossus won a career-high 5.4 aerials duels per game on average, via WhoScored. His aggression and strength also makes him hard to beat having only been dispossessed four times in 24 appearances.

    He’s been likened to Edin Dzeko in the past but perhaps a better comparison could be Diego Costa, who Mourinho managed to a Premier League and League Cup double in 2015.

    It is evident that this is the sort of striker profile he’s after – a mean brute who can bully teams into submission and that’s what Dost would bring say over someone like Joshua King or Villa’s new signing Ollie Watkins.

    The Dutch forward has been described as a “top-level” talent who’d have no trouble adapting to the demands of an elite division whilst another one of Mourinho’s former players, the now-retired Andre Schurrle, believes Dost is “phenomenal” and “unbelievable”.

    For just £5.5m, Levy should be all over this move.
