According to Portuguese outlet Mercado Azul, Tottenham have launched a bid to sign Porto midfielder Vitinha.

The 21-year-old played under Nuno at Wolves last season, where he made 22 appearances on loan.

They reportedly have an option to buy Vitinha for 20m euro (£17m) but have delayed activating it so far.

And Jorge Mendes has reportedly told Tottenham they can sign Vitinha for the same £17m Wolves would be required to pay.

“Destroy the opponents’ offensive line”

Vitinha is an exciting talent who has a great future ahead of him.

After he joined Wolves on loan, the club published an article in which Portuguese journalist Nuno Barbosa hailed the player’s style of play.

“The way he puts the ball on his offensive teammates can destroy the opponents’ offensive line,” said Barbosa.

“Vitinha thinks very fast with the ball. He’s not very physical, tall or strong, but he has all the essential qualities for a midfielder.

“I think when you see him play, you’ll realise he’s very mature.

“You’ll realise also he knows what to do at every moment of the game, he’s very similar to Joao Moutinho.”

Moutinho is a top player, so if Spurs can get a talent very similar to him, they’re onto a winner.

And over the past few months, fans have compared Vitinha to some other top players.
