Tottenham fans react as club could pursue £17m deal, Nuno knows player well

Tottenham Hotspur could reportedly elbow Wolverhampton Wanderers aside and strike a £17million deal for midfielder Vitinha. The young Porto ace spent last season on loan at Wolves, clocking up 19 Premier League games. Tottenham fans have discussed his potential arrival on Twitter.

According to Mercado Azul. The Portuguese outlet claims that while Wolves can still sign Vitinha permanently for £17million, the midfielder has now been offered to Spurs for the same price. Of course, Nuno Espirito Santo has since swapped Wolves for Tottenham following the end of Vitinha’s loan.

It probably means that Jorge Mendes will now focus on helping Tottenham this summer, alongside Nuno and Fabio Paratici. As said, Vitinha played 22 times for Wolves last season but only joined the Midlands club after 12 senior outings for Porto. He has a contract at Porto until June 2024.

What are Tottenham fans saying about Vitinha?

Well, there were moments in which Vitinha certainly caught the eye. Above, for example, sees Vitinha score the only goal of his Wolves loan – a long-range worldie during 1-0 win in the FA Cup over Chorley. It was a brilliant goal and certainly got many off their seat, despite the opposition.

Tottenham fans have had their say on reports that now they could sign Vitinha this summer, pushing Wolves aside to get his signature. While he is still young and has a long way to go to start for a club like Spurs – many think he would be an exciting addition. Nuno has been critical in the past.

One fan reckons the arrival of Vitinha blocks the potential pathway for Oliver Skipp, who has returned from a loan spell at Norwich City.
