The Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern doing their best to drown the memories of a poor end to the season have been given reason to cheer once again.
With Champions League football on the way, the fans in tonight have met reports in from Brazilian based journalist Felipe Mekhitarian with applause as the North London outfit reportedly close in on a stunning deal for Sao Paolo striker Jonathan Calleri.
Guillermo Calleri, Jonathan Calleri's father has told São Paulo board members his son has a verbal agreement with Tottenham.

The 22-year old has been linked with moves to both Spurs and Arsenal over the last few months after impressing in Brazil since joining from Boca Juniors last year.
He has 12 goals in 24 games and is seemingly a natural fit in the dynamic young side countryman Mauricio Pochettino has crafted at the Lane during his tenure in charge of the club.
A dynamic and versatile attacker, the Argentine could provide a high quality backup to star man Harry Kane ahead of the adventure into the European elite next term.
