Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is rumoured to be leaving on his jet plane again as he looks to go back in for Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho. The deadline day deal for the Porto player ultimately failed for conflicting reasons but it may seem as if the 25 year old remains the priority target.
Following the transfer collapse, it had been rumoured that interest from Russia would follow as the window remained open in other parts of Europe. However, this may well have been mere paper talk following the stellar transfer of Moutinho’s team mate Hulk to Zenit St Petersburg.
The key to the January transfer could be Levy’s visit where he is reported to be offering extra money on top of the £25m fee if Porto grant an exclusivity contract. That would give Tottenham first option on a player who they seem determined to bring to White Hart Lane.
