Multiple sources in Portugal this morning have reported that Tottenham Hotspur are in talks over a loan deal for Porto striker Ze Luis.
These have been backed up by Dan Kilpatrick of the London Evening Standard, as the club explore options to bring in cover for Harry Kane.
As with Gedson Fernandes a few days ago, Spurs fans are now frantically Googling the name of a potential new signing unknown to most.
Google Ze Luis and you may find this outrageous overhead kick from earlier this season. Imagine this at Stamford Bridge next month.
Take a deeper dive into Google and you’d find a 28-year-old striker, born in Cape Verde, with a mediocre youth in the Portuguese lower leagues and a half-decent spell at Spartak Moscow, before his move to Porto last summer.
That overhead kick is one of seven goals he’s scored in 12 games for Porto, which is a good return, but this is Harry Kane we’re trying to replace. It is going to take a lot more than one overhead kick, however spectacular it was, to convince me this relative nobody is the answer to our problems.
