Tottenham interested in signing Diogo Queiros - Latest News

Tottenham Hotspur must use the upcoming transfer window to sign a centre-back.

With Toby Alderweireld’s future highly doubtful and Jan Vertonghen edging ever closer to the retirement home, Mauricio Pochettino must look at bringing in some additional depth to his squad.

And, it would seem the Argentine has an impressive individual on his radar that he could certainly work his magic with.

What’s the News?

According to claims in Portugal by publication Record (via HITC Sport), Tottenham are interested in signing Diogo Queiros this summer.

The Premier League outfit will come up against some stiff competition for his signature though, with Champions League opponents Ajax also keen on the 20-year-old.

The Porto defender is thought to have a release clause of €25million (£21.5m), however, it is stated that Spurs are only prepared to pay €15m (£12.9m) for him.

The Verdict:

Queiros is an extremely exciting prospect and might be a player who could become a huge hit at Tottenham in the future if they were to sign him.

The 20-year-old may be far from the finished article, however, he has all the potential and quality to make a name for himself. He could thrive under the guidance of Pochettino at the New White Hart Lane Stadium and take his game to new heights.

Strong in the air and a good dribbler, Queiros is extremely composed with the ball at his feet. The young Portuguese is also adept at tackling and has the strength and physic to make life difficult for attackers to try and get past him.

He may not have played senior football for Porto just yet, however, he has tasted plenty of action for their ‘B’ side this season and has put in some solid, if not impressive, performances for the Dragões (Dragons).

Tottenham must look to get a deal done for Queiros whatever the price, as they will likely need to bolster their centre-back options in the summer.

Which brings us to the £12.9m Spurs are prepared to pay for him. Whether the Portuguese outfit will accept that offer or look to get as close to the £21.5m release clause remains to be seen.
