According to Globo Esporte, Tottenham are in the market for Vanderson. The Gremio defender has built up a reputation by virtue of his performances in his native Brazil, with AC Milan and Spartak Moscow also eyeing a move for him this summer. Gremio, though, have no intention of selling the right-back, having already rebuffed a €12 million bid. The player apparently has a €100 million release clause embedded in his contract that expires in 2025.
Who Is Vanderson?
Vanderson is seemingly becoming a household name in the Brazilian top-flight following his breakthrough. After being handed a promotion to the senior side at the end of last year, the youngster has already mustered 40 competitive appearances for the club, 12 of which have come in the ongoing 2021 edition of the Brazilian Serie A.
A right-back by trade, Vanderson has impressed the onlookers with his pace, technical abilities and athleticism. He is a complete fullback who can operate either as a right-back or a right wingback, with the 20-year-old boasting the raw pace that makes him a scourge for defenders on the counter.
Moreover, the Brazilian is more than capable of holding his own in possession. He is very good with the ball and can effortlessly dribble past players, which makes him quite a similar attacking outlet as Achraf Hakimi.
Vanderson has the athleticism to go with it as well, allowing him to cover the entirety of the right flank of the field. It also becomes useful in recovering from an attacking position to cover the centre-backs. As such, he is regarded as one of the best up and coming talents in Brazilian football.
A Good Investment For Tottenham?
Tottenham Hotspur are in desperate need of an overhaul in the right-back department this summer. Their primary options in Matt Doherty and Serge Aurier haven’t been consistent at all, with the latter likely having no future under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Doherty, too, is not a viable first-team option anymore and may even fall behind Japhet Tanganga in the pecking order this season. The addition of a new right-back, therefore, could be imperative in a long season that sees Tottenham compete in at least four competitions.
That said, Vanderson may not be a viable target for the club at the moment. The Brazilian has shown a lot of potential and certainly brings quality to the table. But his hefty release clause, coupled with Gremio’s unwillingness to cash in this summer, makes the youngster an impractical target for the Lilywhites, who are also facing financial restraints.
Tottenham should have no problems finding an alternative either, with Nikola Milenkovic reportedly emerging as a target for Fabio Paratici this summer.
