Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites ‘in contact’ over Sporting Lisbon winger Jovane Cabral

Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites ‘in contact’ over Sporting Lisbon winger Jovane Cabral - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report courtesy of Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur have made an ‘approach’ to sign Sporting Lisbon winger Jovane Cabral and have been ‘in contact’ to register their interest – with the £9 million-valued ace emerging as a potential attacking target. 

Cabral, who started 10 games for the Portuguese outfit last season, is starting to turn heads as a real talent who can cause problems out wide – a notion made evident by his impressive WhoScored numbers. 

Should Spurs swoop for Cabral?

Yes, great attacking talent

No, not another winger

Over 2019/2020, the youngster averaged a higher number of completed dribbles per match than any player in the Spurs squad – including star winger Son Heung-min.

Meanwhile, when it comes to shots on goal, Cabral’s impressive 2.9 efforts per 90 trumps England striker Harry Kane – with the winger evidently providing a real threat when introduced.

Now, as a potential result, Spurs have taken notice of his exploits in the Primeira Liga and have come knocking over his signature – making an enquiry to Sporting and declaring their interest as per Football Insider.

Valued at just £9 million by Transfermarkt, Cabral could represent a bargain as chairman Daniel Levy attempts to navigate a never-before-seen window potentially affected by a worldwide global pandemic.

Who did Villas-Boas replace as Spurs manager in 2012?

It is likely that Sporting will value the player at a higher price, but given the fact Levy has managed to negotiate relatively cheap summer deals for Matt Doherty (£15m) and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£15m), as well as the signing of 75-cap veteran Joe Hart on a free transfer, you could be forgiven for thinking that Spurs may just have another ace up their sleeve.
