According to Portuguese station SIC Noticias TV (as relayed by Sport Witness), Tottenham Hotspur have seen a sizeable offer for Luis Diaz turned down by Porto.

Diaz has been a revelation since leaving his native Colombia to join Porto back in the summer of 2019. 

The winger lit up Copa America over the summer by scoring four goals in five matches for Colombia and he has taken that form into the season, having scored 12 goals and provided four assists in 15 appearances in the Portuguese top-flight so far.

Tottenham were credited with an interest in the 24-year-old during the summer transfer window and sources from Portugal subsequently reported in October that the North London club had sent scouts to watch the player in action.

Over recent weeks, Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Porto star. 

If SIC Noticias TV’s information is to be believed, Spurs have now made a mammoth offer for Diaz. It is suggested that Antonio Conte’s men made a bid worth €60m (£50.1m) for the winger, but Porto turned down the offer. 

The report claims that the Portuguese giants want something closer to Diaz’s release clause, which stands at €80m (£66.8), to let him leave this month.

Spurs Web Opinion 

This is quite perplexing if true as one would think that a winger would not be a top priority for Conte, with Son, Lucas, Bergwijn and Gil at his disposal. If Spurs have made an offer for Diaz, perhaps that is a sign that the club are open to cashing in on Bergwijn this month.

  1. He has a pulse, he plays football – thats enough for the media to make up some totally fictitious story about our interest. I dont think there is a single player in Serie A who we have not been linked with since Contes arrival. Most of these stories have no basis in fact
