Tottenham Receive Boost In €43m Chase – Midfielder Could Be Signed At A Much Lower Price

Published

on

Sporting Lisbon are willing to let Spurs target Adrien Silva leave for less than his €43m release clause.

The Portuguese side have displayed flexibility over Silva’s fee, with Tottenham Hotspur interested in the player. However, Lisbon were unimpressed with Spurs’ proposal of €20m. The club’s president Bruno de Carvalho believing it to be insufficient.

According to Portuguese sports daily Record (h/t insidefutbol), Carvalho is willing to be flexible and would take €30m from Tottenham, who will need to increase their offer.

Silva is the captain of Sporting Lisbon currently, but the club have recruited in the midfield area already this summer. If the right offer comes in, then they will allow him to depart.

The Portuguese international is playing in the Confederations Cup in Russia, at this moment. After the tournament concludes he may head straight to Spurs if things progress fast. Although, the North-London side will need to meet his valuation first.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, is a notoriously tough negotiator. His handling of Real Madrid’s interest in Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, act as a perfect example. Levy won’t succumb to Sporting Lisbon’s demands unless it suits him and Tottenham.

It is common knowledge that Spurs are in the market for a midfielder this summer. They are already strong in this department – boasting the likes of Victor Wanyama, Christian Eriksen, Eric Dier and Dele Alli already. However, manager Mauricio Pochettino is eager to boost his options further.

There have also been rumours that the club which ranked second in last season’s Premier League, are looking at Fiorentina’s Matias Vecino (Tutto Mercato Web). Vecino, an Uruguayan international, has been touted as a possible replacement for Eric Dier, who is reported to have attracted interest from Manchester United.

However, Silva could also fill that role. The 28-year old, who has 3-years remaining on his current Sporting Lisbon contract, was born in France. Son to a Portuguese father and French mother, he began his youth career in France, with Bordeaux. However, he made the move to Portugal at a young age and opted to represent the Portuguese national side.

He has 18 Portugal caps to his name, so far. Silva also represented the nation of his father at all youth levels.
