Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a whole host of potential new signings since the season ended.
One rumour which has been mentioned on more than one occasion is possible interest in Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes.
The 24-year-old midfielder has become one of the most sought-after players in Europe after a stunning campaign for club and country with Spurs, Liverpool and Manchester United all having said to have had the player on their radar (Correio de Manha).
Fernandes scored 32 goals for Sporting last season and provided 18 assists in his 53 matches in all competitions.
Sky Sports reporter Paul Gilmour has taken to Twitter to reveal that he has heard that Tottenham will not be looking to make a move for the player who could cost in the region of £70million (The Sun).
Big interest in Bruno Fernandes and he will command a high fee. We’re told Spurs won’t be signing him this summer #thfc

With Fernandes under contract at the Primeira Liga side until 2023, they are in a position to command a very healthy fee which will represent a significant profit on the £7.5million they paid to Sampdoria (The Sun).
Gilmour’s Tweet saw some Spurs fans share their thoughts on the shelved transfer for Fernandes.
You saying I watched the first half of the nations league final for nothing?

We won't sign anyone due to the slowness of the club

A shame would be a good player for us #thfc

With Spurs having already been tipped to make big money moves for the likes of Giovani Los Celso and Tanguy Ndombele, there has to be a limit to the amount of money which Daniel Levy will hand to Mauricio Pochettino this summer.
