Tottenham Hotspur’s chase for Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes continues, according to reports from the Portuguese press today.

Newspaper A Bola has a story saying Spurs are one of the clubs who have already requested a seat at the Lions’ match against Benfica, which will be played on Saturday.

The outlet claims there’s a special reason for the Tottenham officials to be there, and that’s to to keep an eye on the midfielder.

After months of scouting, it’s time to watch the player in a game of ‘great intensity’, and that’s a good opportunity for it. Even though Porto have practically guaranteed the title this weekend, Sporting and Benfica are still fighting for the second place in the league, so the Lisbon derby promises to be pretty interesting.

Tottenham started being linked to Fernandes just last month, so the situation continues to be the same.

It was then claimed Spurs had continued to watch the ‘new golden boy’ of Portuguese football.

Sporting reportedly have no intention of selling him this summer, and his €100m release clause, which expires in June, is said to be his tag price for now.
