‘Underwhelming’, ‘He’s a tank’: Tottenham fans have mixed reaction to Carlos Vinicius links

Tottenham Hotspur are said to be one of three Premier League teams interested in the signature of Benfica striker Carlos Vinicius this season.

That is according to a report from TVI24 in Portugal, who are detailing the potential exit of last season’s top scorer in the Portuguese top-flight. 

Earlier this summer Benfica were said to be hoping for a figure in the region of €60 million (£55.5m) for the Brazilian. However, after a summer of heavy spending, they are eager to make back some money and could go as low as €50-€55 million (£46m-£51m) in order to facilitate his sale.

Vinicius was the joint top-scorer in the Portuguese top-flight last season and fits the mold of a Jose Mourinho type striker. 

He is a tireless worker, big and strong, with an ability to find himself in the right place at the right time to score goals. 

The parallels with the likes of Diego Costa or Didier Drogba are obvious and Vinicius would be an ideal recruit to help in the striker role for Spurs. 

Some Tottenham fans can see that, whilst others are fairly realistic about that price-tag and the fact Vinicius has only thrived in Portugal. 

Here is some of the best reaction from the Tottenham fans to the Vinicius news…
