Transfer News: Tottenham begin hunt for new striker as Carlos Vinicius set for Benfica return

According to a transfer news update from Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur have decided to not sign Brazilian striker Carlos Vinicius on a permanent deal and will instead scour the market for a new centre-forward.

Vinicius, 26, had joined Tottenham on a season-long loan deal from SL Benfica last summer. The club had the option of making the transfer permanent for a fee said to be around the £36m mark.

Vinicius has ten goals for Tottenham so far

Since arriving in England, Vinicius hasn’t been able to make the kind of impact that was expected. While it hasn’t helped his situation that Harry Kane is enjoying the best season of his career, the Brazilian hasn’t always made the most of his opportunities, even though his tally of 10 goals and 3 assists in 22 games might say otherwise. Indeed, only one of his goals has come in the Premier League. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Vinicius has not been in the matchday squad for Tottenham in three of our last four matches, including the huge Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

And, it is now being claimed that the club has decided against making his transfer permanent by triggering the £36m buy option. Instead, Tottenham will now be on the lookout for a new centre-forward to replace the 26-year-old. (h/t Sky Sports)

Despite there being speculations surrounding the future of Kane, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has no intentions of offloading the England captain and will now scour the market for an able backup for the 27-year-old, the report adds.

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

Vinicius never really seemed to enjoy the trust of former manager Jose Mourinho while it has been the same case under interim boss Ryan Mason. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Tottenham will not be signing him on a permanent basis. It now remains to be seen who they decide to bring in as backup for Kane.
