Transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano has now confirmed that Carlos Vinicius is heading to Tottenham Hotspur after the North Londoners agreed to €3m loan fee with Benfica.
Reports first emerged yesterday that Spurs were looking to sign Vinicius on a loan deal with an option to buy him for around €40 million.
Football.London’s Alasdair Gold revealed that the Brazilian was Jose Mourinho’s number one striker target, while Football Insider claimed that he was due to fly to London today to complete his medical and sign for the Lilywhites after getting the green light from Benfica.
Romano confirmed that the Lilywhites do have an option to make the deal permeant and also backed Gold’s assertion that he was the one Mourinho wanted.
He also revealed that the 25-year-old will pen a contract with Tottenham that runs until 2025 if Spurs choose to sign him permanently.
However, the journalist revealed that Tottenham’s negotiations with Inter Milan for Milan Skriniar have now stalled.

We have had an excellent transfer window so far and if it is true that Vinicius was Jose’s number one target, Levy certainly deserves a lot of credit for getting a deal over the line. If we somehow manage to snap up Skriniar before Monday, this would arguably be one of the best transfer windows we have had in recent history.
