Tottenham have secured a deal for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Adrien Silva, according to reports in Portugal.
It has been suggested that the 28-year-old, who is believed to be attracting interest from Spurs and Leicester City, is available for £26 million.
Now another Portuguese publication, Jornal Noticias (via 101 Great Goals), contends Spurs already have a deal in place with Sporting to sign the midfielder.
Silva very nearly joined Leicester last summer after winning Euro 2016 with Portugal, but the deal broke down at the last minute.
Sporting are apparently refusing to let their star player go for anything under £26 million. If Tottenham truly have agreed a deal, then it must be close to that figure.
When asked about rumours linking him with a move to the Premier League last month, Silva refused to comment.
Silva would add plenty of experience to Spurs’ young squad, but i’m sceptical about the entire story. It’s difficult to see Daniel Levy spending £26 million on a 28-year-old.
