Tottenham have been urged to hijack Manchester United's potential move for Jack Grealish this summer.
However, the north London side have been warned not to splash out £80m for his services.
Former Spurs man Jamie O'Hara has been waxing lyrical about the Aston Villa playmaker, who is attracting interest this summer.
United have been the long-time front-runners for Grealish's signature, with a bid expected before the October 5 deadline.
However, O'Hara thinks the Villa Park captain would be a perfect fit under Mourinho at Spurs – and has told his former side to offload players to shore up funds for a move.
“He’s had a great season, he would be brilliant for Spurs,” O’Hara told talkSPORT.
“We should have got him a season ago when he was a lot cheaper. I don’t know if Spurs have got the money, maybe if they offload a couple. He would be great.
“I think it’s time for him to step up if he wants to be an England player; he needs to be a team near the top six.
“He’s not worth £80m; I love him, but in the current market, absolutely no chance [is he worth that].”
Grealish helped keep Villa in the Premier League with a goal on the final day against West Ham.
Fans of the west Midlands outfit want to see him stay put this summer.
But the player has repeatedly tried to depart his local club in search of a bigger move.

Asked about the player's future on talkSPORT, Dean Smith last month joked: “I gave him a few shots last night and got him to sign a new five-year contract.
“It’s not been done yet . . . it was written in sambuca, I’m not sure if it was mine or his!
“Jack’s a wonderful lad and I’ve got all the time in the world for him and I’m so pleased that he scored the goal that kept us in the Premier League.”
