Tottenham could part ways with impressive 21-year-old rising star in January



Tottenham Hotspur could bid a premature goodbye to Gedson Fernandes

Portuguese midfielder Gedson Fernandes has not reached the levels expected of him since joining Tottenham Hotspur in January.

The 21-year-old joined Spurs in an extended 18-month-loan spell from Portuguese giants Benfica. However, it would appear that the club is keen to cut short his spell in January.

This is according to a report by Portuguese publication A Bola (h/t As per the terms of the deal, Spurs can sign Fernandes on a permanent basis for €50million. However, that now appears unlikely.

Fernandes has made just a solitary appearance for Tottenham this season. The likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko all appear to be ahead of him in the pecking order.

Given his limited opportunities, it makes no sense for the club to persist with him until the end of his tenure. Moreover, Fernandes hasn’t exactly made an impact that has suggested he would be an asset to the club.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho even tried out the youngster at right-back position over the summer. But with Matt Doherty and Serge Aurier available, Mourinho is not short of options.

Another indication that Fernandes is not in the club’s plans is his axing from our Europa League squad. Given that the other prominent name omitted was Danny Rose, the omens do not look to be in the Portuguese ace’s favour. (h/t Sky Sports)

Much was expected of Fernandes when he was brought in. Unfortunately, he hasn’t made a big impact.

A non-critical member of the squad, it is difficult to see Spurs missing him. It would certainly not raise eyebrows if we do end up sending him back to Benfica in January.
