Tottenham Hotspur are one of three clubs reportedly interested in the signature of Colombia international Juan Fernando Quintero this summer. The Porto midfielder has been in fine form this summer during the World Cup, bringing attention to his abilities. Real Madrid, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Spurs are now said to be keen on the South American star.
AS reports that Spurs are one of the clubs keen on the World Cup star, who has stepped up with James Rodriguez struggling with injury.
As far as Daniel Levy is concerned, Quintero will be a perfect target.
The Colombian is currently contracted to Porto, but on loan at River Plate. Things have not exactly worked out in Portugal for the obviously talented playmaker and he has spent time on loan with Stade Rennais, Independiente Medellin and now River Plate.
The Argentine club has a deal in place to sign the player, as reported by AS, and will surely take it considering the amount of money they are set to earn by selling him on.
The clause they have already set for his sale is at €22 million (£19.5 million). That is a bargain considering the current market and what Quintero could bring to Spurs.
Settling in at the North London side would be made a lot easier by the presence of his countryman Davinson Sanchez. Quintero would then be an excellent back-up to Christian Eriksen as Spurs hope to face the difficulties of a 60-plus game season.
For Levy, it’s perfect. He is cheap, his price-tag unnegotiable and will surely want a move to Spurs if they make the first move.
Which they should do, as Quintero looks like being a great recruit for whoever signs him this summer.
