Fernandes was heavily linked with a move to West Ham at the start of the month, but the 21-year-old has turned down the Hammers to join Spurs.

Mourinho is now looking to sign at least one striker as cover for Harry Kane who is sidelined until April with a hamstring injury.

The Benfica youngster, meanwhile, completed his Tottenham medical on Monday and bolsters the club’s midfield options.

With Moussa Sissoko ruled out until April with a knee injury, Mourinho quickly hi-jacked West Ham’s deal for Fernandes.
