Tottenham have been linked to Ze Luis.
The surprise move would only be a loan deal, to help Spurs with cover for Harry Kane.
So while Ze Luis may only be at the club a short time, he could leave a lasting impression.
The Cape Verdean striker has scored goals at every club he has been at, and has a respectable record of 87 first team goals at his various clubs.
He turns 29 later this month, so a loan is ideal to prevent Spurs making a bad long term move.
This season he has scored eight goals for Porto in 20 games, a decent record considering he has not consolidated a position as a starter.
He is an unpredictable and awkward striker with an occasion penchant for the spectacular.
The move could turn out to be a total flop, but in that event, Tottenham will lose little, other than a wasted opportunity not to have signed a more long term solution.
In the event it is a success, Ze Luis would leave North London as a hero, and his proven goalscoring record gives him the chance to do so.
Spurs have big games upcoming in the Champions League and FA Cup, and a decisive goal in one of those matches would see him become a name remembered fondly for years to come.
Tottenham must find a more long term, younger solution as an alternative to Harry Kane in the summer. Ze Luis might get them by until then, and leave the club with some happy memories.
