Five facts about Jonas Goncalves Oliveira

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been offered free agent Jonas Goncalves Oliveira, formerly of Valencia.

The Daily Mail claims Tottenham Hotspur have been offered Brazilian star Jonas Goncalves Oliveira as a potential free agent signing.

Mauricio Pochettino’s attempts to bulk up the defensive part of his squad over the summer meant Spurs ended the transfer window without any additional attacking firepower up front.

Danny Welbeck headed off to Arsenal, which left the boss defending himself and suggesting that Harry Kane was good enough to play a key role in attack this season.

Jonas could be a good short term solution for Spurs and will give them different options up front.

Here are five facts about him.

He’s 30-years-old and is versatile; he can play as a forward or as an attacking midfielder.

He has eight caps so far in his career for Brazil with two goals scored.

He hit an eight minute hat-trick for his last club, Valencia, in a La Liga game against Osasuna last December.

He’s played for five clubs during his senior career; Guarani, Santos, Gremio, Portuguesa and Valencia.

His most prolific spell came at Gremio where he played 74 games and scored 40 goals.
