Report: Tottenham could bid for €40m-rated South American

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Brazilian forward Endrick.

The 16-year-old is highly rated in South America and the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Newcastle United are keen on securing his services as well.

Although the youngster is yet to make his debut for the Palmeiras first team, he is making waves with his performances for the Brazilian club’s under-20 side.

Recently Endrick helped them win the Copinha, also known as the Copa São Paulo de Futebol Júnior. It is a tournament that showcases Brazil’s best young talents and Endrick helped his side win their first-ever Copinha trophy.

According to journalist Jorge Nicola (h/t Sportwitness), Tottenham Hotspur are one of the few clubs looking to sign the players and they are expected to submit a bid for the youngster in the near future.

The South American forward has a release clause of €40 million and it will be interesting to see if Spurs are willing to break the bank for his services.

The Londoners will have seen how the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo have developed since their move to Europe and the investment in Endrick could prove to be a masterstroke in the long run as well.

The 16-year-old is an instinctive finisher, but he is more than just a goalscorer. Endrick can carry the ball forward with his impressive dribbling ability and physicality. Furthermore, his flair and agility allow him to operate in wide areas as well.

Endrick has the potential to develop into a top-class player in the future and working with a manager like Antonio Conte could accelerate this development.

There’s more chance of Steven Hawking getting a Trial with Inter Milan.

Although Conte doesn’t really play youngsters, this kid has loads of ability. Well worth a punt.

Let me get this straight.

We have a gaffer that doesn’t play kids and a director that doesn’t like to spend money so now we’re in the running to sign a 16yr old lad for in excess of 50m?

Hmm…

he’s too expensive for Levy as his punts are way cheaper. NoCleudo, Clarke, Clinton. The list goes on….

If he’s as good as he is reported to be, then he won’t be going to Spurs. Levy would never pay that money for a sixteen year old.

Will he pay £85m up front to secure 19-year old Jude Bellingham? That front-loaded price is now doing the rounds of ‘Bellingham has already been tapped up by the MSM’….

I suspect Levy would go in with a cheeky bid of £8.50,just to test the waters.

Levy always underbids knowing that a proper club will come in and pay the going price. He can then utter the usual PR spin that we really tried to get the deal over the line but there were unforeseen circumstance which hindered the club from signing the player. This is why we are never successful on the pitch under Enic. The best players sign for the best clubs and we never sign the them. Mourinho wanted Ruben Dias , with whom we had agreed personal terms but City signed him so we signed Rodon instead. This is the sort of transfer failure which has permeated Levy’s tenure as CEO.

It will continue for as long as he and ENIC are around. Property firm, uninterested in football.

Another punt for the future who I’m sure Conte has given his backing to.
