Lots of Tottenham Hotspur fans have voiced their excitement on Twitter at the latest transfer claim to emerge ahead of their Premier League opener this weekend.
According to Portuguese outlet Record, Spurs are showing interest in Sporting midfielder Joao Palhinha this summer.
Would Joao Palhinha be a good signing?
The report suggests the north London club are willing to offer €20m (£16.9m) for the 26-year-old but it is thought the Portuguese side would be looking for more.
Palhinha made 32 appearances in Liga NOS last season, in which he netted once as the side got their hands on the Portuguese crown.
Spurs fans flocked to the tweet from The Spurs Web to share their thoughts at the claim emerging from Portugal regarding the Lisbon-born midfielder.
What exactly did these Spurs fans have to say?
“Convinced Paratici is listening to me”
“This would be a better signing than Martinez btw”
“He’ll be way more than 20, class player”
“Pay the money he’s really good”
This claim has surfaced amid speculation surrounding the future of current Spurs midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, who is reportedly contemplating where his future lies.
Although Ndombele’s future may not be clear at the moment, it is apparent these Spurs fans would love to see Palhinha sign for their club this summer.
