Spurs were heavily linked with Fernandes throughout the summer, but were unable to get a deal over the line.
With Tottenham struggling it has been suggested in Portugal that they will push to sign Fernandes in the new year.
And it seems that the playmaker would be a hugely popular addition with supporters at Tottenham.

Proven quality and has the stats to back it up. I feel like our start to the season would of been so different with him in the side— Dan (@DanPenfold91) October 13, 2019
If Fernandes was to join Spurs he would increase the creative options available to Mauricio Pochettino.
Fernandes has also shown a goalscoring touch in Portugal, and he could be a long-term replacement for Christian Eriksen.
Eriksen’s contract at Tottenham has still not been extended, which means that Spurs are facing losing the out-of-form Danish international on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Fernandes has hit six goals and claimed five assists for his current Sporting Lisbon side so far this season.
