The transfer rumour mill is in full swing as Tottenham Hotspur appear to be thrown into the mix regarding a number of players this summer.
One man that has been heavily linked with potentially joining us this summer is Bruno Fernandes.
The Sporting Lisbon midfielder is not expected to remain with the Portuguese outfit beyond the transfer window and Spurs are thought to be one of the many admirers he has.
Correio da Manha (via Sport Witness) reported recently that we were keen on beating the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United in the race for his signature after an incredible season, in which he netted 32 goals and provided 18 assists across all competitions (Transfermarkt).
And, following his performances for Portugal in their two recent Nations League matches, it seems a number of our supporters would love to see him in north London next season.
Although he did not provide a goal or an assist in their clashes against Switzerland and Holland as they lifted the inaugural title, Fernandes showed plenty of quality and what the 24-year-old could offer Tottenham in the middle of the park.
Should Christian Eriksen depart, the Portugal international looked more than capable of being the man to replace him, as we detailed once before.
Some fans took to Twitter following the match against the Netherlands on Sunday and stated that the club needed to sign him now, whilst others felt he would be a better option than some of their other rumoured targets this month. Here are some of their reactions…
Fernandes looks quality #thfc

If reports linking Bruno Fernandes to @SpursOfficial are true, then we need to act quick. After his performances in the Nations League the biggest clubs in Europe will certainly be looking at him now. #COYS #THFC #NationsLeague

After watching Bruno Fernandes today, I’d prefer him to Lo Celso. Also I’d like for us to get Ndombele and Sessegnon as well. If we only signed those 3 I’d be more than happy

Would rather Bruno Fernandes over Lo Celso, Fernandes is what we do need in the middle ???????? @SpursOfficial but then again we ain’t got the Minerals
