Spurs want Benfica midfielder as first summer signing


Tottenham finally appear ready to enter the transfer market as they pursue Benfica midfielder Ljubomir Fejsa, reports the Sun.

Spurs fans may not be familiar with the Serbian international, but they’ll be excited by one of his qualities.

Having played for Benfica, Partizan Belgrade, and Olympiacos, he’s now won ten medals in nine seasons, which could prove vital experience as Mauricio Pochettino looks to add title winners to his squad. Fejsa is reportedly viewed as an alternative to Sporting Lisbon’s Adrien Silva.


The Lilywhites have finished third and second in their last two seasons.

The 28-year-old’s arrival would cast further doubt on the future of Moussa Sissoko, as it’s difficult to see where else he would fit into the central midfield.

As he is out of contract next year, the Portuguese club may have to sell him on the cheap. That would certainly work to Spurs’ advantage, as Daniel Levy’s insistence on low spending means they are the only top flight club yet to sign a player this summer.
