Resilient Tottenham Make €30m Second Bid To Sign Portuguese Midfielder And Club Captain

Published

on

According to A Bola, Tottenham will make a second bid for Sporting Lisbon captain Adrien Silva. Mauricio Pochettino’s side saw their initial €25million bid rejected. It is believed that their second offer is around €30million.

The midfielder has become a key target for Spurs as they look to bolster their squad before the new campaign.
Silva is valued at €35million by Sporting Lisbon. However, the Portuguese club could be persuaded to reach a compromise.

He scored 6 goals and made 4 assists in 36 games in all competitions, last season. Silva has also made 20 appearances for the Portuguese national team, scoring one goal.

Negotiations between Spurs and Lisbon are ongoing. It is hoped that a deal can be reached soon, as the North-London club attempt to make the first signing of the summer. So far, we haven’t sold or bought any player.

Boosting his midfield options has emerged as the priority for Pochettino this transfer window. The club have also displayed an interest in Fiorentina playmaker Matias Vecino.

Spurs had been concerned that they would lose Eric Dier to Manchester United. However, it looks like the England international will be staying, as the Red Devils move closer to the signing of Nemanja Matic (Guardian). Even if Dier does stay, Spurs will still pursue other midfield options.

The problem though, is that European clubs are determined to squeeze as much money as they can out of Premier League teams. The English sides are earning so much money through TV deals, that they are being expected to pay more for players.

Sporting Lisbon seem to be employing that tactic here. €35million shouldn’t be too excessive for Spurs, but chairman Daniel Levy will negotiate hard. This means that this deal may not be completed for a while.

Tottenham are also believed to have expressed an interest in Sevilla’s Steven N’Zonzi. Calciomercato is reporting that we and Barcelona are ready to trigger the Frenchman’s €40m release clause.

N’Zonzi has played in the Premier League before, plying his trade for Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City. However, it is in Spain that he has become one of Europe’s most intimidating midfield forces.
