Back in the summer, Tottenham Hotspur were one of the clubs who were said to be interested in the signing of Porto striker Luis Diaz.

It was claimed Spurs had ‘an eye’ on the player’s performances during the Copa America, where he scored for Colombia against the likes of Argentina and Brazil, and finished the competition as a top scorer.

Well, Diaz ended up staying with the Dragons for the time being, where he started the season pretty well, with seven goals to his name so far.

One of them was scored last night, in the 1-0 win over Milan for the Champions League, and it turns out that Tottenham officials were there to watch it.

As reported by newspaper O Jogo, Spurs were one of the 21 clubs who sent scouts to that match.

The striker was, of course, the man of the match. He had already hit the post in the second half and was the difference in the game with a nice shot at the 65th minute.

If the scouts were in Porto to watch him, he was definitely able to show how decisive he’s been.

Luis Diaz is valued by Transfermarkt at €25m, and is protected by Porto with a release clause of €80m.

He’s been linked to other Premier League sides lately, so the Dragons will undoubtedly be ready to sell him for a big fee next year.

Other players who stood out for Porto last night were Chancel Mbemba, Pepe and especially midfielder Mateus Uribe, another Colombian who’s been shining at the club.
