A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on recent reports from the Daily Mirror suggesting that Spurs are on the verge of signing Gedson Fernandes.
It appears that Jose Mourinho is closing in on his first addition since being appointed at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Daily Mirror has reported that Spurs held talks with Jorge Mendes on Friday concerning a potential deal for Fernandes. And it seems that a move could be announced imminently.
The Mirror suggests an 18-month loan from Benfica could be confirmed as early as Monday. And news of the potential move has divided opinion amongst the Spurs fans on social media.
There are plenty who feel underwhelmed by the news. Fernandes has not played a lot of football this season. He has made just two league starts, with a further five appearances coming from the bench.
There is also a worry that Spurs are strengthening in the wrong areas. Some fans want to see a new forward signed in light of Harry Kane’s surgery. And of course, right-back looks to be an issue that Mourinho will have to address at some stage.
But there are a number of supporters who are excited about the deal for Fernandes. The 21-year-old can develop significantly over the duration of his loan with Spurs. And some believe that it is a very good start to what they hope will prove to be a fairly busy window for Daniel Levy.
Here is what some of the supporters make of the reports…
We need strikers ffs not more midfielders
