Some Spurs fans on social media have been left excited following reports that the North Londoners are about to complete a deal for Benfica striker Carlos Vinicius.

Multiple sources including Football.London’s Alasdair Gold and Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano (via Goncalo Lopez) have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement with Benfica to sign the Brazilian on a season-long loan deal, with the option to make it permanent for around €45 million next summer.

After signing for the Portuguese giants in a deal worth £15million last summer, the striker enjoyed a prolific campaign for the Eagles, managing 27 goals in all competitions (transkermarkt.com).

While some Spurs fans admitted that they did not know much about the 25-year-old, they were delighted to hear that he was Mourinho’s first choice.

Some really liked the look of Vinicius and suggested that he was a typical Mourinho type of striker due to his physicality.

Here is how some fans have reacted to reports that the striker is said to be Spurs bound:


Spurs Web Opinion

To me, Vicinius looks a lot like a left-footed Emmanuel Adebayor. He seems to possess the physicality and strengthen to play with his back to gold and hold up the ball, while also possessing the pace to run in behind the defence in counter-attacks.

He looks like he has quick feet and smart movement but does not seem like the best of finishers, with many of his goals coming about as a result of being in the right place at the right time. He looks like someone who will get plenty of assists.
