White Hart Lane side look to land Santos youngster.
Tottenham are launching a fresh bid for Santos sensation Paulo Henrique Ganso.
The Telegraph says Spurs are expected to hold talks today to sign the highly-rated Brazilian international midfielder Ganso in a deal that would be worth more than £15 million.
Ganso’s agent, Teodoro Fonseca, arrived in London yesterday and is hoping to meet Spurs to discuss the future of the player who has been told he can leave Santos in this transfer window if a deal can be struck.
Santos president Luis Oliveira recently announced that Ganso could go if “the offer matches our expectations” before adding that the club had yet to receive a bid. It’s understood that 55 per cent of Ganso’s contract rights are currently held by an investment group, DIS.
Harry Redknapp is looking to bring in talented young rangy midfielder Ganso and is said to be in advanced talks to secure the Santos player this month, a signing that would send a big statement of intent to their fellow Premier League side and perhaps help the White Hart Lane side’s pursuit of a genuine title challenge.
In today’s transfer market £15m is a fairly low price to pay for a player of Ganso’s obvious quality and potential. The powerfully built 22 year old attacking midfielder has attracted a great deal of attention ever since he burst onto the scene at a couple of years back.
Though Tottenham have a fairly strong midfield set-up, Redknapp is keen to build for the future and has been scouting the Brazilian international for some time. Santos may feel that selling Ganso could help them stall on having to sell their prized asset Neymar?
