Tottenham keen on bargain deal for Portugal midfielder


Tottenham are considering a move for Sporting Braga midfielder Rafa Silva, according to the London Evening Standard.

The 23-year-old was part of the Portugal squad that won Euro 2016, although it is understood Spurs’ interest predates that as they have been eyeing him since last season.

Zenit St Petersburg and Porto are the two other clubs who are keen on his signature, but Tottenham hold the advantage because he would like to play in the Premier League.

It seems that Mauricio Pochettino’s work in the transfer market is not quite complete, despite an already productive summer which has seen the arrivals of Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen.


Another midfielder, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou should also be on his way to White Hart Lane at some point this week, with Clinton N’jie going the other way to Marseille.

Rafa would be another positive addition, not least because he would only cost around £10million.

Spurs have made it clear they won’t pay over the odds for their targets in this year’s inflated market, but they may have identified yet another bargain.
