Tottenham eyeing up a move for Evanilson

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Porto striker Evanilson at the end of the season.

According to a report via Sport Witness, the North London club are keen on signing the Brazilian striker but they will face competition from Manchester United and Chelsea.

Porto reportedly value the striker at €100 million and it will be interesting to see if any of the three clubs are willing to pay that kind of money for him.

Evanilson has been quite impressive for Porto this season and he has 24 goals and six assists in all competitions. He could prove to be a quality acquisition for all three clubs.

It is no secret that Tottenham need to bring in a quality striker this summer. They are yet to replace Harry Kane adequately. They have missed a clinical presence upfront since the departure of the England international. The Brazilian could fill the void left by him next season. However, the asking price is unreasonable and Tottenham unlikely to be able to afford him unless Porto decide to lower their demands.

Man United and Chelsea keen on Evanilson

Meanwhile, Manchester United need to bring in a quality striker as well. Rasmus Hojlund will need more support in the attack and Evanilson could share the goal scoring burden with the Denmark international. It will be interesting to see if Manchester United are ready to break the bank for him.

As far as Chelsea are concerned, Nicolas Jackson has been quite underwhelming and he has not been able to live up to the expectations since the move to Stamford bridge. He was expected to solve his goal scoring problems this season, but the move has not worked out as expected. The Blues need to bring in a reliable goalscorer and the Brazilian could prove to be an upgrade on the former La Liga striker.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham, Manchester United or Chelsea follow up on their interest with an official proposal at the end of the season. Porto will have to be more reasonable with their demands in order for the move to go through and it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds.
