Jose Mourinho has laughed off suggestions that Spurs could push through any early deals for players when the transfer window opens.

The transfer window for Premier League clubs will run from Monday July 27 – once the season has finished – until October 5, with a domestic-only window remaining open for another 11 days.

There has been speculation connecting Tottenham to a host of players with Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale, Southampton’s Emile-Pierre Hojbjerg and Beijing Guoan’s Kim Min-jae linked today.

And when put to Mourinho whether they could tie up any early deals, Mourinho replied: “A new player Monday? (laughs) That would be amazing news but it’s just the opening of the window. We’re going in the right direction. Very calm, organised, measured, thinking of everything.

“We know what we can do, which directions we can go in, which directions we cannot. We are very balanced, we’re together. No doubts about what we need, what it is possible for us to get. Step by step we’ll end with a better, more balanced squad, keeping the great players we have is a very important thing.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho has confirmed that Spurs will have Dele Alli available for the final game of the Premier League season at Crystal Palace.

Alli has missed the last five games with a hamstring injury but is ready to start at Selhurst Park.

“All good apart from (Tanguy) Ndombele, everybody is ready, including Dele Alli,” Mourinho added. “He’s ready, he worked with the team all week, he is ready.”
