​Spurs to return for Sporting CP midfielder Fernandes in January

Tottenham are set to resume their pursuit of Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

Spurs and Manchester United were heavily linked with the attacking midfielder this summer.

However, neither club made a bid that was sufficient for Sporting to sell the Portuguese star.

A Bola says Spurs will make another offer in January, especially if they can offload Christian Eriksen.

Spurs are desperate to refresh their squad, and Fernandes would be seen as a natural replacement for Eriksen in the starting line up.

The 25-year-old has not made it a secret that he wishes to move to a bigger club, while Sporting would welcome a mega offer.
