Report: Tottenham have sent scouts to watch one Porto star in action

90 min have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are one of several Premier League clubs eyeing a potential move for Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa.

Costa has been the standout goalkeeper in the Portuguese top flight over the last 18 months and his stock has grown substantially on the back of his impressive showing for Portugal at the World Cup in Qatar.

He is one of many names who have been mooted as a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris over recent months, with journalist Dean Jones telling GiveMeSport back in December that the goalkeeper is on the radars of both Spurs and Chelsea.

Spanish publication Relevo reported around the same time that Manchester United were also eyeing the Porto number one as a potential replacement for David de Gea.

90 min have now backed up those claims, stating that Spurs, Chelsea and Man Utd are all interested in a summer move for Costa.

The publication asserts that all three of the Premier League clubs have sent scouts to the Estadio do Dragao this season to run the rule over the 23-year-old.

Costa would fit the bill for the Spurs as he is a decent shot-stopper and excellent with the ball at his feet. He also showed at the World Cup that he is extremely reliable and mature for his age and is not fazed by big occasions.
