Tottenham may have been handed a boost in their rumoured pursuit of Porto midfielder Vitinha, with Record now reporting that the Portuguese club considers the player’s potential move to Wolves to be dead.
Vitinha impressed after breaking into the Porto first-team in the 2019/20 season and the 21-year-old spent the last campaign on loan at Wolves, with the West Midlands club having the option to sign him permanently for £18m.
Mercado Azul reported last week that while Wolves had shown interest in signing Vitinha permanently, they had asked permission to postpone the payment in order to find liquidity.
The report suggested that the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes offered Tottenham the chance to sign Vitinha for €20m (£17m) this summer amidst Wolves’ hesitation.
Record have now claimed that Porto do not expect Wolves to complete a deal for the Portugal Under-21 international and have thus decided to put him on the transfer market in the hope that other clubs would be interested.
The Primeira Liga club are said to be keen on cashing in on Vitinha as they need to raise funds.

The Mendes and Nuno links seem to be the main reason behind the speculation linking Vitinha with a move to Spurs. However, looking at our squad’s composition, singing another attacking midfielder would make little sense.
