Tottenham Hotspur fans seem to believe that Diego Godin is too old to be a worthwhile addition to their squad.

The Daily Mirror claim that Jose Mourinho wants to bring in the central defender at Tottenham, as he looks to improve his side’s back-line.

 

Godin is currently playing for Inter Milan, but he has struggled to get regular football at the San Siro.

And many Tottenham fans seem to believe that Godin is way past his best now.

Tottenham have tended to focus on signing younger players so it would be a surprise if they targeted Godin this summer.

The Uruguayan could offer Spurs experience, but with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen both showing signs of age this term, Mourinho may be better off looking at younger alternatives.

Godin was once one of the best defenders in the world, but at the age of 34, there would have to be question marks over whether he would be able to cope with the pace of the Premier League.
