Report: Spurs In “Advanced Talks” For Striker With €70M Release Clause
By Joe Fish -

Name a striker, any striker, and we’ve been linked with him this month. Okay, slight correction. Name an average striker, any average striker, and we’ve been linked with him this month. And no, we haven’t truly been linked with Edinson Cavani.

The latest name doing the rounds is Willian Jose of Real Sociedad. Italian journalist

Tottenham and Real Sociedad are in advanced talks for Willian José. Spure are NOT going to pay the release clause (€70M) and are now negotiating with Real about the fee to reach an agreement. ⚪️ #THFC #Tottenham #WillianJosé #transfers

Romano is considered a decent source and has been all over the Christian Eriksen to Inter Milan story, which is quickly approaching ‘saga’ territory.

Willian José isn’t a target that is going to excite Spurs fans but his goalscoring record at Sociedad is pretty good – 53 goals in 130 appearances since 2016. The Brazilian is valued by his club, not merely a striker who is available which does suggest slightly more ambitious thinking than a short-term fix.

Of course Daniel Levy isn’t just going to pay the asking price, as Romano outlines in his tweet, although €70m is ridiculous even in this market for a player of Jose’s mediocre pedigree. Transfermarkt.com values him at €27m.

Is Willian José the one? Or will we be on to the next striker link tomorrow?

    Well, when you write “mediocre pedigree”. It isn’t likely to excite many Spurs fans.
