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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I think we have had a pretty good transfer window – all things considered – and in many ways Levy has supported Mourinho far better than he ever diid Poch’ despite the former manager taking us to extraordinary heights. It’s a shame that Levy never really heeded Pochettino’s warnings about change because, all the former coach predicted has since come to pass. Whilst we can now only look forward, there are signs that Spurs are beginning to turn around recent misfortunes and the rebuilding process under Jose is definitely taking shape now. I must admit to having major concerns about the Dele Alli situation which I think is not just a little unjust on the young player, particularly considering what he has achieved thus far in his career at Spurs. Perhaps this is Mourinho playing hardball with Dele in much the same way as he did with Tanguy Ndombele last season in the hopes it will spark Dele back to his best form? But with all the constant speculation driven by Dele’s notable absence there is clear concern that the manager may be driving Dele towards the exit and that for me would be an enormous shame for both club and player. I just hope it doesn’t turn out like that and Dele returns all guns blazing!
