Tottenham Hotspur are attempting to secure a deal to bring Benfica forward Carlos Vinicius to North London.

Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold claimed on Twitter that the 25-year-old is Jose Mourinho’s top striking target.

The report suggests that Spurs are attempting to secure an initial loan move with an option to make the deal permanent for £36.3million.

Gold claims that Spurs were keen to tie up a deal for Vinicius earlier in the window only for the Portuguese giants to price him out of a move but after their failure to secure Champions League football, it has played in Tottenham’s favour.

Vinicius enjoyed a prolific campaign in front of goal last season having netted on 24 occasions in 47 appearances across all competitions (transfermarkt).

Benfica signed the 25-year-old for just £15m last summer and inserted a £91m release clause in his contract and are said to want around £46million to allow him to leave (TVI24).
