Tottenham are keen on signing Sporting Lisbon ace Bruno Fernandes this summer, according to Portuguese media outlet A Bola.

And now another Portuguese publication, this time Record, claims that Sporting are preparing a new contract offer for the brilliant 24-year-old, although it does not match the proposal on the table from Spurs.

 

Fernandes wont come cheap. He is valued at around £72 million, according to A Bola, and it would take a real shift in transfer policy from Tottenham n order to sign him this summer.

The Portugal international is a real talent, however, and he might just be worth every penny for Spurs, if Mauricio Ppochettino is backed by Daniel Levy this summer.

He was on fire for Sporting this season, racking up 32 goals and 18 assists in 53 appearances in all competitions, with all of those coming from an attacking midfield position.

Fernandes would be a superb addition for Tottenham, and according to Record, they are inching ever closer to bringing the Sporting ace to north London this summer.
