Tottenham leading race for Confederations Cup star

bernard.jpgThe Daily Star have a cracker of a story for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the publication claim that Tottenham are after Brazilian starlet Bernard this summer.

The 20-year-old is making waves this summer at the Confederations Cup for home nation Brazil and is certainly worthy of landing himself on the radar of Andre Villas-Boas.

Despite being so young, he has managed to earn three caps for his national team already and is certainly one for the future. Andre Villas-Boas has identified the Atletico Mineiro player as someone he thinks can really push his side forward and not only that, but be a player at the club for many seasons to come.

Youth is one of the key aspects AVB wants to promote in his side and Bernard is both – the right age and talented enough to be a top player in the Premier League.

It had been thought that Borussia Dortmund would provide some competition for the player yet they seem to have fallen behind the North London side in the race to land him given that the youngsters agent Hissa Moyses claimed: “Dortmund have not submitted a proposal. Therefore Tottenham are the only contenders.”

Will Tottenham get their hands on the Brazilian starlet this summer? Rate this rumour below.
