Portuguese outlet Record believe that Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with Benfica, in respect of their ever improving ace, Jota.
A modest £26.3m release clause is cited, which perhaps reflects the top flight inexperience of this up and coming 20 year old.
As an attacking winger, Joao Filipe could be the player – in time – to encourage both Sonny and Dele to stop taking their starting places for granted.
The enquiry comes on the back of a scouting mission back in March, where Abola note the presence of both Tottenham and Leverkusen representatives for a UEFA Europa League game, against Dynamo Zagreb.
Joao Filipe is said to be fast, able with both feet and capable of also playing a central striker. I would speculate he’s an immeasurable upgrade on Fernando Llorente.
This Benfica product is bound to be dubbed ‘The New Ronaldo’, but from a few of the video clips I’ve watched today, ‘The Turbo Charged Harry Winks’ might be a better fitting moniker. The certainly appear to share the same barber.
