Writing for football.london, reliable Tottenham journalist Alasdair Gold has revealed that Benfica striker Carlos Vinicius has been at the centre of enquires from chairman Daniel Levy along with the likes of Habib Diallo, Danny Ings, Andrea Belotti and teammate Haris Seferovic.
Indeed, as the 2020/2021 Premier League calendar continues, which is said to be congested and demanding due to last season’s untimely coronavirus postponement, Spurs are on the look out for two new signings even after completing a string of noteworthy deals recently.
Should Tottenham sign Vinicius?
Yes, perfect striking partner to Kane
No, far too expensive
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty arrived in north London before Levy managed a sensational Real Madrid double swoop to bring in Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon on top of the previous trio (Transfermarkt).
A striker is said to be the club’s all-important priority, especially given their over-reliance on star hitman Harry Kane, and Gold has since revealed the players who are under Tottenham’s watchful eye.
Vinicius, who bagged an impressive 24 goals in all competitions last season for Benfica, is said to be one of these names – and his reputation for being a ‘beast‘ on the continent marks him out as a really exciting candidate.
Tottenham are preparing to move for a sixth summer signing, with talks commencing over defender Milan Skriniar, and there are plenty of reasons for Lilywhites to get excited following this revelation that the club have been targeting a number of strikers as well.
As the club keep their options open over potential targets, the fact Vinicius has been linked could be music to the ears of supporters.
