Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino has reportedly said ‘yes’ to joining Tottenham Hotspur this month, opening the door for a swap deal involving Christian Eriksen – and Spurs fans have reacted to potential signing Vecino on Twitter.
Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla has claimed on his official website that the £20.5million Inter signing (Goal) is a target for Spurs and has said ‘yes’ to a move to Tottenham. Spurs signing Vecino, though, is down to Christian Eriksen’s transfer.
It remains to be seen if Inter are willing to let Uruguay international Vecino leave the Nerrazzuri this month, given he has been a crucial part of Antonio Conte’s side throughout 2019-20. He has made 17 appearances in all, three in the Champions League.
But with Eriksen coming to Inter, Vecino is likely to fall down the pecking order and that could be the reason as to why he would favour a move to Spurs. Inter are said to have had cash-only offers turned down for the Danish superstar.
Spurs have already signed a midfielder this month in Gedson Fernandes. The Portugal international has joined the club from Benfica on an 18-month loan with a view to a permanent £43million transfer.
Tottenham fans have reacted to the reported news that Vecino has said ‘yes’ to Spurs over a possible move to north London, and many supporters are excited at the prospect of seeing the former Fiorentina star in a Tottenham shirt.
