Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has called on chairman Daniel Levy to back him by evolving the team through the transfer market.

Spurs had an impressive summer transfer window with Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Carlos Vinicius and Joe Rodon all arriving at the club.

And they have enjoyed a strong start to the season with the highlight being a 6-1 win over Manchester United earlier this month.

A top-four finish is Tottenham’s biggest goal for the season after ending last season in sixth.

And Mourinho believes more is needed to bolster his squad and cited the example of Liverpool to support his argument.

Mourinho said: “More than the squad, it is time to work and time for evolution.

“It is time to affect the team not just the way we play, but the way we think – sometimes the way we think takes more time than other things.

“I am very happy with the squad but, of course, next summer we will need to give a couple of touches but this is what you always do to improve the squad.

“Look at Liverpool, for example, when Jurgen has been there. How many transfer windows? He went to the market and improved the team.”

“It’s not easy to come here from Portugal to the Premier League with a new philosophy, very, very different, and he needs to adapt quickly.

“I’m helping him, everyone is helping him, and I think he feels comfortable already.

“Step by step he will improve, and he will help us. He’s a very interesting player and like I said, he’s good for us, good for the squad.”
