Rumours have continued to persist into this week that Tottenham have placed significant interest into the prospect of signing Sporting CP playmaker Adrien Silva.
French publication L’Equipe are now claiming that the club have even presented a bid to the club, said to be in the region of €15m.
Though the bid is said to be well under the valuation that the Portuguese club have put on the players head, Adrien Silva is said to be keen on the prospect of linking up with the Tottenham squad; defining himself as a being at a “crucial stage of his career”, adding he would also be interested in “signing the contract of his career”.
Whilst speculation being purported by a tabloid paper must be taken with a pinch of salt, the prospect of adding the Portuguese international to the Tottenham squad is one that will undoubtedly excite the fan-base; many of whom are concerned by the lack of creative options available in the midfield positions.
Silva is capable of dictating play from a deeper position, as well as playing in behind the striker, and could provide valuable competition for the likes of Dele and Victor Wanyama.
The midfielder had a successful summer as part of the Euro winning Portuguese squad and bagged seven goals in 20 outings last term. Watch his highlights from the 2015/16 season here:
