Tottenham signing Carlos Vinicius permanently an ‘unlikely prospect’

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur making the transfer of on-loan striker Carlos Vinicius in the summer transfer window is an ‘unlikely prospect’ as thing stand.

The Brazilian striker arrived at Tottenham last summer on loan from Portuguese outfit SL Benfica. He has taken his time to adapt at the club but has given a good account of himself each time he has been called upon in the UEFA Europa League.

Indeed, Vinicius has scored six goals in the Europa League, which includes a brace in our 4-0 win over Wolfsberger AC on Wednesday night. He has directly contributed to a goal or an assist every 51 minutes so far in the competition.

However, doubts remain as to whether he can cut it out in the Premier League.

Vinicius, so far this term, has made only six appearances in the English top-flight. Indeed, he has just started one Premier League game, which came against Chelsea not so long ago. And the South American goal poacher was an anonymous figure, failing to make any sort of impact as Tottenham ended up on the losing side.

As a result, Jose Mourinho is still said to be not entirely convinced about Vinicius. Tottenham, in their loan agreement with Benfica, have a clause that would allow them to sign the 25-year-old permanently for a transfer fee of €45m.

Vinicius, in whatever limited chances he has gotten, has given a good account of himself. However, with Mourinho still not convinced whether he can handle Premier League football, it remains to be seen what Tottenham do when the time to make a decision on his future comes along.
