Spurs transfer news: Tottenham interested in Portuguese star Gedson Fernandes

The Mirror claims that Tottenham are contemplating a move for 20-year-old Benfica star Gedson Fernandes.

The 20-year-old has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United but the report claims that Spurs are now ahead of the pair chasing Fernandes.

The report adds that the midfielder is rated at £35million and his representatives were in England last week to meet potential suitors.

The Portuguese midfielder has played 37 times for Benfica this season and the report adds that Mauricio Pochettino knows his squad needs some fresh faces in the summer.

Levy claims Tottenham have money to spend

The report adds that Daniel Levy has confirmed that Tottenham have money to spend in the summer after spending nothing in two transfer windows.

Spurs need to bring in a midfielder in the summer after selling Mousa Dembele in January.

Harry Winks, Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier have had their injury problems this season and Gedson could be a smart signing by Spurs.

Pochettino has worked wonders with several young players during his tenure at the club, and Gedson has the potential to improve further under the right manager.
