Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly interested in signing Carlos Vinicius.
Spurs even have the option to buy the Benfica loanee permanently this summer.
However, they are unable to pay his £36 million release clause that would be needed to buy him from Benfica on a permanent basis.
This buyout clause is thought to be too high for Jose Mourinho’s side to accept.
Tottenham has told Benfica that a fee of £17 million is the most they can do this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
In comparison to the prolific Harry Kane, the 25-year-old has failed to make an impact in the Premier League.
However, he has shone in the Europa League, scoring six goals and assisting three times in eight games.
