And after 12 goals from left wing, he has caught the eye of Mourinho.

Record claim Spurs are interested in Diaz and could be about to make a move this summer.

Mourinho’s transfer plans have taken a hit after the club missed out on Champions League qualification.

Due to the financial effects of the coronavirus, they were forced to take out a £175m loan from the Bank of England.

However, Mourinho has already stated he has been assured he will be backed in the upcoming window to bring in new additions.

He said: “Have I had assurances I will not need to sell key players this summer? Yes.

“There will be small changes — a big overhaul needs a lot of money.

“I don’t think there are many clubs ready to buy, buy, buy — the ones that are going to is because they can do it with or without FFP.

“If they do it, it’s because they feel they can do it.

“We know what we can do and what is not possible to do.

“We don’t want to sell our important players and that immediately is a limitation because by not selling big players you also don’t have big incomings.

“So we are going to be very balanced but again the objective is to improve the squad.

“I’m totally convinced we’re going to manage.”

He added: “Sometimes a club can improve by giving a better balance to the squad.

“So we are very calm and our squad next season will be better than this season.”

Despite a price tag failing to be mentioned, Diaz could be viewed as a cheaper alternative to some other targets.

And he would certainly add some extra flair into the Spurs attack.

The ace still has four years remaining on his deal with Porto.
