Tottenham Hotspur Begin Negotiations To Sign Ace Playmaker: What Will He Add To Pochettino’s Side?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

According to a recent report by the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur have begun talks with Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes’ agent over a potential move to bring the player to North London during this ongoing transfer window.

The same source has also mentioned that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking to make some significant changes to his squad in this offseason but is yet to sign a player thus far.

Fernandes’ Sensational Season With Sporting CP Last Term

The 24-year-old midfield ace had enjoyed a stellar campaign with the Portuguese outfit as he helped them secure an impressive fourth-place finish in the Primeira Liga standings. Fernandes was Marcel Keizer’s best player by some distance at Sporting last season as he put in a lot of match-winning displays for them during the previous campaign. His incredible goal-scoring record saw him win the prestigious LPFP Primeira Liga Player of the Year award earlier this summer.

The Portuguese dazzler has registered 32 goals while creating 18 assists in 53 matches for the Liga NOS side last season across all competitions. The Sporting skipper has also earned 12 international caps for Portugal and has found the back of the net once for his nation so far.

What Will The Portuguese Playmaker Add To Pochettino’s Team?

Fernandes tends to come alive when being deployed in the number 10 position as he has a knack for making some dangerous runs from midfield. His well-timed dribbles enable him to be a potent threat in front of the opposing goal. The Portuguese midfielder can distribute the ball accurately at the centre of the park and is also lethal finisher in the offensive end of the pitch.

The Sporting star’s remarkable record in the previous campaign makes him a worthy candidate to replace Christian Eriksen at White Hart Lane if the Dane leaves the club before the start of the new season. However, the jury is still out on whether Fernandes can replicate those numbers in the Premier League which is renowned for its physicality and unpredictability.

Fernandes will undoubtedly bolster Pochettino’s midfield options at the North London club. He will not only score numerous goals and provide assists to the Tottenham squad but could also help them win some silverware next season. Thus, it makes a lot of sense for Pochettino to opt for a player of Fernandes’ ilk this summer.
