Tottenham Hotspur have made a last-ditch effort to beat West Ham for the signature of Benfica’s Gedson Fernandes, according to Sky Sports.
Spurs are apparently looking to sign a midfielder on loan with Moussa Sissoko out for a while through medieval collateral ligament damage, and they’ve made an offer to bring the 21-year-old to North London for the next 18 months. The Hammers already have a deal in principle agreed, but it is believed that the final decision will be made when the player visits London this weekend.
However, The Guardian have put a slightly different spin on the story. They claim that Spurs have actually been contacted by Jorge Mendes, who recently started representing Fernandes and has connections with Jose Mourinho, and offered the chance to sign him.
The two reports aren’t mutually exclusive, and it seems quite plausible that Spurs have indeed made the offer – having been alerted to the midfielder’s availability by Mendes.
