Tottenham are among the Premier League clubs keeping an eye on Pedro Goncalves.

Aston Villa reach out to Sporting CP regarding Pedro Goncalves

According to Portuguese publication A Bola, Aston Villa have taken the initiative and reached out to Sporting Lisbon to inquire about the possibility of signing Tottenham Hotspur target Pedro Goncalves.

The Villans are determined to understand the conditions that would need to be met to secure the services of the versatile attacking midfielder, who has been nothing short of exceptional this season.

Pedro Goncalves has been the shining star of Portuguese football in the 2022-23 campaign, consistently making headlines with his impressive performances. With an impressive tally of 20 goals and 15 assists in all competitions, it’s no wonder top clubs are vying for his signature.

It comes as no surprise that both Aston Villa and Spurs are ready to battle it out for the talented youngster. The battle for his signature seems to have intensified, with Aston Villa making the first move.

However, securing the services of the 24-year-old will not come cheap. Sporting Lisbon has made it clear that any club interested in Goncalves will have to meet his hefty release clause of €80 million.

This substantial figure is due to the fact that Sporting owes 50% of any transfer fee received for the Portuguese international to his former club, Famalicao. It is further indication that they will not make life easy for any buying club.

Goncalves is undoubtedly an outstanding player, and his performances this season have justified his high valuation. Tottenham, in their pursuit of attacking midfield reinforcements, have been linked with other talented players like James Maddison and Daichi Kamada.

Negotiating with Sporting Lisbon is no easy task, as Tottenham experienced during the Pedro Porro talks. The Portuguese giants are known for their tough stance when it comes to transfers, and extracting Goncalves from their grasp will undoubtedly be a challenging endeavour.
