According to British media reports, Mourinho began to be a little dissatisfied with Tottenham’s senior management because he has not yet got the center he wants.
"The Sun" said that Mourinho's sentiment is growing, and he can't believe that Tottenham will always rely on a single center. The newspaper quoted a source close to Mourinho as saying: "Tottenham are the only big team in the world with only one center. It was the same last season. Fans really thought Jose (Mourinho) wanted four left-backs, Six wingers but only one center? It's ridiculous."
In contrast, Manchester City has Aguero and Jesus, Manchester United has Martial, Rashford and Ighalo, Liverpool has Firmino and Origi, Chelsea has Werner, Abraham and Gil Lu, Arsenal have Aubameyang, Lacazette and Enkadia, and even Leicester City have Vardy and Ihnacho. Among the major Premier League clubs, it seems that only Tottenham rely on Kane as a center.
Mourinho wanted Brentford’s Oriel Watkins, but Levi was too expensive and was eventually bought by Aston Villa (28 million pounds + 5 million floating). Levi hopes to bring in a backup center at the least cost, but this has not yet been achieved.
穆里尼奥想要布伦特福德的奥里尔·沃特金斯（Oriel Watkins），但李维斯（Levi）太贵了，最终被阿斯顿维拉（Aston Villa）（2800万英镑+ 500万浮动）收购。 Levi希望以最低的成本引入一个备份中心，但这尚未实现。
