Last week we relayed reports suggesting Sporting Lisbon had rejected a £21.5 million bid from Tottenham for midfielder Adrien Silva.
There was also a story in Portugal claiming Spurs were “committed” to signing the 28-year-old midfielder who was instrumental to Portugal’s Euro 2016 win.
Now, another report in Portugal suggests Tottenham are willing to make a second bid for Silva.
The story was spotted by HITC in the print edition of Portuguese newspaper Jornal de Noticas. It claims Sporting value Silva at £26 million — not too much more than Spurs initial £21.5 bid.
If the video below is anything to go by, Silva might need to toughen up before he comes to the Premier League.
