Tottenham Hotspur signed Carlos Vinicius from Benfica on loan for the season back in the summer, with reports revealing that the North Londoners had paid £2.7m for the loan itself and had an option to buy him for a further £40.83m (BBC).
Rather ironically, after Spurs finally invested in a back-up to Harry Kane, the England captain has barely missed a game through injury this season.
Therefore, Vinicius has played just 168 minutes in the Premier League this season with the majority of his games coming in the early stages of the Europa League and domestic cups (TransferMarkt).
Vinicius has nine goals and three assists across 22 games in all competitions this season, a decent return albeit against lesser opposition.
TransferMarkt claim that the Brazilian centre-forward is currently only worth £18m, far below the £40m figure Spurs would have to pay to take him permanently.
