Report: Euro 2020 midfielder wants Tottenham move; scored 5 Champions League goals last term
Portugal midfielder, Sergio Oliveira, is apparently waiting on Tottenham to make their move for him this summer, according to Record.
Oliveira, who is part of the Euro 2020 squad for Portugal, was close to joining Fiorentina but that move is now off. Instead, the experienced Porto star is said to now want a move to Spurs, despite their lack of manager.
There has, as yet, been no contact from the Tottenham end. But Record claim that a move to Spurs is a suitable solution for Oliveira, and he’s awaiting their move.
Of course, any move could be subject to whoever the new manager is.
Spurs are making a royal mess of bringing someone in. The end of the week saw a move for Paulo Fonseca die off, before a bizarre approach for Gennaro Gattuso also hit the buffers.
Since then, it’s been claimed that Nuno Santo is once again in the mix. The former Wolves boss is still looking for work, and is heavily linked with Everton as well.
For Oliveira, a move to England would be a just reward for a stunning campaign with Porto. The midfielder hit 18 goals in all competitions, including five in the Champions League. At 29, it would appear it’s now or never for a big move.
Sergio Oliveira a class act who would improve Tottenham and others
His age might put a few off, but there is no doubting this is a midfielder player of the highest order.
Oliveira oozes class. In typical Portuguese fashion, he is comfortable with the ball, not afraid to put his foot in, and produces the goods in attacking areas.
In terms of midfield players who would improve Tottenham, Oliveira is someone who fits the bill.
The obvious problem is the lack of manager. And unfortunately for Spurs fans, this might end up being the story of their summer in terms of of new arrivals.
