According to an update from Duncan Castles, star striker Carlos Vinicius could be set for a medical on Friday as both Spurs and Benfica reach an agreement over a season-long loan deal with the £41.1 million option-to-buy next summer – an update which could have Lilywhites brimming with anticipation.
Indeed, as Sky Sports transfer guru Fabrizio Romano confirmed, Tottenham are edging close to confirming the signing of Vinicius after shaking hands on his conditions and fee – with journalist Castles going into greater detail on Twitter.
Who should Spurs sign after Vinicius?
According to the reporter, Vinicius’ loan deal will cost chairman Daniel Levy and co. an initial £2.7 million loan fee, as well as the option to make him permanent in 2021, with his medical due on Friday and an announcement potentially soon after.
These crucial steps could prove pivotal as Spurs look to officially secure their sixth signing of the summer, coming after completing deals for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale (Transfermarkt).
Debatably, this window has been the most fruitful for Spurs in quite some time, as explained by reliable Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold who described it as ‘rather different‘ on Twitter.
Now, with Levy about to land a more-than-capable star striking alternative to Harry Kane, Lilywhites have plenty to be excited about ahead of a gruelling and congested 2020/2021 Premier League season.
Spurs won’t be done there either, with a new defensive ace allegedly still on the agenda, but Levy may have to act fast given the October 5th deadline is right around the corner.
