It’s no secret that Tottenham are heavily reliant on Harry Kane in attack and are in need of cover in that department.
Mourinho and Costa worked together at Stamford Bridge for one year and lifted the Premier League title in 2015.
The Brazilian striker struggled for form last season, scoring just five goals in 30 appearances for Atletico.

Spurs are also reportedly wary of his age and fitness levels at 31 and after spells on the sidelines through injury during the 2019-20 season.
Although with just a year left on his contract at the LaLiga outfit, Atletico could be willing to let him leave for a reasonable fee rather than run the risk of losing him for free in 2021.
Tottenham begin their Premier League campaign at home to Everton on September 12.
