Tottenham Send Representative To Lisbon To Negotiate A Deal For Bruno Fernandes
Tottenham have reportedly sent a representative to Lisbon so they can negotiate a deal for Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP.
Spurs have an 'emissary' in Lisbon as they look to sign Fernandes following interest from Manchester United who've been heavily linked with the Portuguese international.
He's been linked with a move to United all summer, but recent reports suggest the Reds have cooled their interest in the 24-year-old.
Spurs are now chasing Fernandes and the club will look to broker a deal with Sporting president Frederico Varandas over a £56 million transfer, according to RTP.
So far this transfer window, Spurs have signed two players in Tanguy Ndombele for a club record £54 million and Jack Clarke from Leeds United for £9.9 million.
Mauricio Pochettino has claimed he's not in charge of Spurs' transfer dealings.
"I am not in charge. I know nothing about the situation of my players. I am only coaching them, trying to get the best from them," he said.
"This type of thing, sell or buy players, extend contract or not extend contract: it's not in my hands, it's in the club's hands and in Daniel Levy's hands.
"I am managing the team in the best way possible."
Spurs also remain interested in Real Betis' Giovani Lo Celso with reports claiming a deal is in place to secure his services before transfer deadline day.
