Rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Darwin Nunez looks set to swap Almeria for Portuguese giants Benfica, according to Record.

Nunez, who scored 16 goals in 30 appearances in La Liga 2 for the Spanish side last season (transfermarkt) is reported to have travelled to Lisbon yesterday to undergo his medical ahead of a £22million move.

Tottenham (Football.London) and Brighton (Argus) have both been credited with interest in the 21-year-old Uruguayan striker.

Jose Mourinho admitted in January that he was keen to bring in another striker to his squad after losing the services of Harry Kane with a hamstring tear (Football.London).

After failing to land a marksman, Mourinho’s problems were increased when Heung-min Son fractured his arm just a matter of weeks later.

Spurs are also said to have already held talks with Josh King over a move to North London following Bournemouth’s relegation to the Championship, while also having an interest in his strike partner Callum Wilson (talkSPORT).
