Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs ‘admit’ they’re signing Vinicius - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report by Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manhã, via Sport Witness, Tottenham Hotspur, and by extension chairman Daniel Levy, ‘admit’ they’re signing Carlos Vinicius on a permanent deal at the end of the season – but they are ‘far’ from paying his €45 million (£41 million) loan-to-buy clause.

Tottenham ‘admit’ Vinicius desire

Vinicius, who Spurs reportedly see as the ‘ideal’ partner to Harry Kane going forward according to this report, is now at the centre of a desire from Levy and co to make his move permanent, but only for a cut price.

Can you name these 10 former Spurs stars? Let's get started! Who is this?

Backed by manager Jose Mourinho, who reportedly said the club are ‘doing well‘ by going for a ‘realistic‘ purchase amount, Tottenham wish to sign Vinicius as a permanent Lilywhites player but only if parent club Benfica accept a lower fee – with Levy reportedly eyeing a cut price move.

Despite originally agreeing to a £41m loan-to-buy clause last summer, Tottenham ‘admit’ their desire for Vinicius but a deal will not happen at that valuation.

Transfer Tavern take

Tottenham chiefs ‘responsible’ for this stance apparently now see the 26-year-old as Kane’s ‘ideal partner’ – backing up a recent opinion by pundit Gabriel Agbonlahor who called Vinicius the ‘perfect player that Spurs need’ for that role (Football Insider).

Time will tell whether Benfica are willing to negotiate a much lower asking price for Vinicius, but Spurs reportedly wish for that to happen as this transfer admission emerges.
