Tottenham Are Ready To Push Ahead In Their Plans To Sign £26.5m Portuguese Central Midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur are ready to push ahead in their plans to sign Adrien Silva. The 28-year-old central midfielder is a key player for Sporting Lisbon but is not off the limits for a transfer. As per reports coming out of Portugal indicate, Sporting’s captain is ready to make the move and the club too is ready to accept the right offer. The challenge though, is the asking price of €30million.

Portuguese outlet Sapo Desporto report that Tottenham are aware of Sporting’s €30million asking price (£26.5m) and will aim to come to terms over an agreement which will see them meet that price with incentives.

Reports say that Tottenham plan to meet the representatives of both the player and the club. Silva is the club captain and is a regular at national level too. His involvement with Portugal in the recent Confederations Cup was supposedly the reason for the delay in talks. Silva has been linked with Tottenham since last summer and is expected to add competition for midfield places.

Tottenham are yet to make a single signing this summer, which is slightly frustrating for their fans. Under Mauricio Pochettino, the side has developed steel and has showcased the ability to challenge for the title. But as the last two seasons showed, the side still lacks one or two quality signings to take that extra step.

Silva is a proven winner in Portugal, having won the domestic cup twice with Sporting and the Euro 2016 with the national team. He scored 5 goals last season and provided 3 assists as Sporting finished 3rd in the league.

Sporting has already announced their squad for the pre-season trip to Switzerland and that does not feature Silva. This though, has got nothing to do with the rumours linking him to Tottenham as he was given extra time off after his recent international involvement.

Leaving aside the feasibility of this transfer going through, this is an interesting development for Spurs. The side already has a wealth of options in the midfield and Silva’s arrival would only complicate the competition for places. The London-based club has shown reluctance in entertaining any offers for Dier too, which means Silva will not be an automatic choice.

Is Silva the right target for Tottenham and is Tottenham the right club for Silva? Maybe we’ll find out soon?
