Tottenham have reached a deal with Benfica over striker Carlos Vinicius.
Spurs are desperate to land a forward to support Harry Kane before the transfer window closes on Monday.
And the North London club agreed a move with Benfica for their front man, with the Brazilian arriving at Tottenham today.
Initially it will mean a season-long loan for Vinicius at White Hart Lane.
But it is understood there will be a clause in the contract to make the transfer permanent for around £41million next summer.
The 25-year-old is understood to have an £89m release clause in his Benfica contract, which runs until 2024.
At 6ft 3ins but with rapid speed, he is comfortable playing through the middle as a No9 or out wide and should be able to ease the burden on Kane.
Mourinho is confident he will get his wishes before deadline day ends.
He said: “Yes, I want, I need a striker.
“But I want to make it very, very clear that the club – the structure above me – knows that I need a striker and also wants a striker.”
