As the Portuguese press continues to report Zé Luis’ situation at Porto, Tottenham Hotspur are still mentioned as a club who could’ve signed the striker in the January window.
Today, newspaper A Bola writes that the player wouldn’t put any boundaries in front of an exit, since he hasn’t been happy with staying on the bench lately.
The outlet recalls he’s been ‘linked’ to Spurs, but the move wasn’t possible since he couldn’t get a work permit for the Premier League. So his dream has to be delayed ‘for now’.
There are still clubs from other countries who would like to sign the striker, and Porto want to make at least €20m with his sale.
It’s been previously claimed by the Portuguese media that Zé Luís is eligible for a European passport, but he’s never tried to sort it out, and that’s why he couldn’t get a work permit.
So perhaps he could be convinced to get the paperwork done now, making him a possible target for English clubs in the future.
