Spurs continue to be linked with an official approach for FC Twente’s Nacer Chadli but if the club fail to follow up their interest then they may just switch their attentions to Argentine international Eduardo Salvio.

Benfica’s Salvio is the same age as Chadli at 23 but despite reported interest from Spurs and Manchester City, he isn’t quite as advanced in his career. The Argentine is strictly a right winger whereas Belgian Chadli is comfortable on either flank but Salvio’s goals and assists to games ratio is improving thanks to a breakthrough season in Portugal during 2012-13.

The stories linking Salvio with a move to the Premier League have originated from the Portuguese press who cite a 60 million Euro buyout clause in the player’s contract. Even City wouldn’t want to get close to that but after an impressive recent campaign, it’s claimed that Benfica are getting ready to deal with official bids from either club.

Salvio has huge potential but he is no Nacer Chadli just yet and for that matter he’s no Aaron Lennon either. Stranger deals have been signed but is there any value in our club pursuing this one?



  1. We will still be dicussing strikers and wingers and left backs when the window is about to bang shut, and we will end up with………

    • Spot on Helen – this a typical Mr Levy ploy to confuse and bluff everyone with imaginary big name signings. Haha.

  2. Levy will not spend the money all this talk about who they are going to buy is just crap we will start this season like the end of last with the same strikers who have no idear where the net is we should all get real LEVY WILL NOT SPEND THE MONEY

  3. Daniel Levy is a joke he’s got good players beging to be bought to Tottenham, Christian Benteke & Nacer Chadli just to name 2 we need a striker like Benteke and we need a left winger too like Chadli he’s a good crosser and he’s skillful and he can scores lots of goals. If we leave it too long Chelsea will poach him from us like they did with Oscar & Hazard. Swansea has put in a bid for Chadli so we could lose him too, I cant see us getting anywhere with an owner like Daniel Levy we’re so close to being a team that can challenge for a place in Europe every year but Levy just needs to get 2 strikers and a left winger you know who. EITHER SPEND SOME MONEY OF GO AWAY MR LEVY.

  4. Can’t believe some of these comments about Levy, talk about short memories. Where were Spurs when Levy took over?… Mid-table mediocrity, aiming for the 40 point safety zone as their first target each season. Now they have an exceptional squad of talent, including the PFA player of the year, a team that challenges in the Cups and the top end of the league, a young hungry coach who got us our highest points tally in Prem history in his first season with us – achieved with an injury stricken squad, a new training ground that is one of the best in Europe, a new stadium on the way that is reportedly going to be the first of the ‘next-gen’ stadiums across Europe. And to top it off the top teams in the league no longer bid for our best players, because in the past when they could bully us Levy would rinse them, and now he has elevated the club to a standard where they can no longer be bullied because he refuses to deal with them, even Arsenal can’t say that, only Real Madrid have that kind of hold over Spurs now, which is another compliment to Levy, our top players are wanted by the Galactico’s for huge sums of money. Yes mistakes have been made, largely due to the influence of the toxic Comoli, but overall Levy has made huge progress with Spurs, which looks set to steadily continue. They have already bought Paulinho, a fantastic singing, and David Villa would be a Spurs player by now if it wasn’t for a last minute bid from Athletico. Benteke will come, but Levy is doing what he does best, not being taken for a mug by teams clearly over-pricing their players, he makes mugs out of others, not the other way round. I am so glad we have him at the helm, who would you lot prefer? Mike Ashley? Out of the non sugar-daddy clubs, only Arsenal can claim to be doing better than Spurs, and they finished just one point ahead last year.
