Jose Mourinho still not satisfied with the back line Tottenham Horspur. Two Chelsea defenders are still the target of the Portuguese manager.

Tottenham Hotspur break down the top board Premier League Standings. Until the eighth week, while Harry Kane et al are entrenched in second place with 17 points, the results of five wins, two draws and one defeat.

The attack lines of Tottenham Hotspur, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have matured. Kane has scored seven goals and Son has scored eight.

But as for the back line, the Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho seem not satisfied with the existing squad. He asked the club to buy new defenders in the winter transfer market in January.

Reporting from Metro, Jose Mourinho still continues to be interested in two Chelsea center-backs. They are Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger.

Allegedly, Mourinho assessed two defenders Chelsea it’s ripe. Zouma, who he brought to Chelsea when he served as manager of the Blues in 2014, has matured and now occupies the Chelsea main squad.

Antonio Rudiger actually rarely played, because his position was shifted by the arrival of Thiago Silva. But in the German national team, Rudiger is still the main choice.

Maybe, Chelsea won’t let go Kurt Zouma. Because Zouma made it easier for Thiago Silva’s adaptation to communicate using French (Silva is still not fluent in English).

Antonio Rudiger may be released by Chelsea, because so far it is just a coating. After all, there are still young players Fikayo Tomori and Andreas Christensen.

Rudiger also needs more playing hours, so that his place is safer in his national team.
