According to the print edition of O Jogo (14/09/22 – as relayed by Sport Witness), scouts from Tottenham were present at the Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday to watch Porto’s Champions League clash against Club Brugge.
Tottenham did not have a very good outing in Portugal on Tuesday as they fell to their first defeat of the season at the hands of Sporting Lisbon.
O Jogo reveal that representatives from the North London club had other business in the country the following day.
They were reportedly spotted attending Porto’s clash with Brugge, which the Belgian side won 4-0 to move to the top spot in Group B while leaving the Portuguese side rooted at the bottom of the table.
The report in O Jogo does not provide any information on the players who Spurs were scouting.
However, it is revealed that Tottenham were not the only ones to send scouts to the match, with representatives from the likes of Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla, also thought to be present.
Spurs Web Opinion
The player (or players) we were scouting were likely from Porto rather than Club Brugge as this is not the first time Spurs scouts have been spotted at Estadio do Dragao this season.
