Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on signing the Sporting Lisbon star.

According to a report from Portuguese media outlet Record, Tottenham is now the most likely destination for Sporting Lisbon ace Bruno Fernandes.

Spurs are in direct competition with Manchester United to sign the 24-year-old attacking midfield star, according to Record.

The Portuguese publication claims that Tottenham have offered €60 million (£55 million) for Fernandes, but Sporting want closer to €70 million (£64 million).

 

As things stand, however, they suggest that north London is the Portugal international's most likely destination.

And what a signing he would be for Spurs.

Fernandes racked up an incredible 32 goals and 18 assists in 53 appearances in all competitions for Sporting last season.

Tottenham have already signed Tanguy Ndombele, but adding someone like Fernandes to their ranks really would be the icing on the cake for the north London club.

Whether they will be prepared to match Sporting's reported £64m asking price for the attacking midfielder, however, remains to be seen.

If the Portuguese press are to be believed though, Tottenham are currently in pole position to bring the 24-year-old to the Premier League.
