According to A Bola, Tottenham have made a second bid for Sporting Lisbon captain Adrien Silva, after having previously withdrawn from negotiations.
Last month, it was reported that Spurs pulled out of the race to sign Adrien Silva, being unwilling to meet Sporting’s £26 million estimation of the midfielder.
Now however, A Bola claims that Tottenham have launched a second bid for the 28 year old, making it likely that Spurs merely paused negotiations until the conclusion of the Confederations Cup in Russia, during which Silva represented Portugal.
Tottenham’s initial bid consisted of a £17.3 million up front payment, as well as up to an additional £4 million in bonuses, while the new offer reportedly breaches the £20 million mark.
Spurs have reportedly launched a bid of £21.7 million bid for the Portuguese international, with the same additional £4 million in bonuses, making the potential value of the transfer as high as £25.7 million.
Silva is a reliable holding midfielder, with experience that could prove useful in Tottenham’s third ever crack at the Champions League next season.
