Spurs have opened talks over the £4M signing of Portugal striker Yannick Djalo from Sporting Lisbon, according to the Daily Mirror.
Yannick Djalo – Spurs and Newcastle after the striker
Spurs were in Lisbon last night to play a friendly against Portuguese Champions Benfica, who are short of money, and it could be they made progress in their negotiations with Sporting Lisbon, the other Lisbon club.
The Guinea-Bissau born player, who can also play on the wing, scored six goals last season, and Newcastle have had a reported interest in the player for several weeks now.
But it will be difficult to get the player to Tyneside, if Spurs are also in for the player, since they can offer European Champions League football next season.
The Mirror says that Newcastle are also interested, and that Djalo’s agent Lionel Silva has admitted his client wants to move to the Premier League.
With Chris Hughton saying recently more players will be coming to Newcastle, we have to believe Newcastle will make an out and out signing before the end of next week, but just who that may be – we have no idea.
