Nuno Espirito Santo has requested that Tottenham make a move to sign Wolves attacker Daniel Podence, according to journalist Pedro Almeida.

Spurs have already been linked to Conor Coady and Pedro Neto since Santo replaced Jose Mourinho in the north London dugout.

However, Santo hasn’t yet added to his squad during his short spell as manager, but Almeida believes that the 47-year-old has personally asked the hierarchy to propose a move to bring in Podence, who he bought to the Premier League back in January 2020 from Olympiacos.

Podence scored three times, including against both Arsenal and Chelsea, and added two assists in the Premier League last season, although he was restricted to just 25 league appearances due to several different muscle problems.

Tottenham have seen the 25-year-old first hand when they faced the Greek giants in the Champions League back in 2019-2020, with Podence scoring an impressive equaliser in the 2-2 draw in Athens.

The Wolves attacker has the ability to play anywhere across the front three, although whilst he’s previously played through the middle, his pace and trickery makes him more suited out wide.
