Tottenham still keen on Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes

Tottenham remain keen on Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

A Bola says Tottenham will renew their efforts to sign Fernandes in January.

Tottenham opened talks with Sporting over a deal for Fernandes towards the end of the transfer window, but he was considered as a potential alternative to Giovani Lo Celso who eventually signed on a season-long loan from Real Betis.

"As you all know, Tottenham made a lot of proposals for me. Everything was right with me - or practically should be," Fernandes told GQ Portugal.

“I never made any big demands, my manager was always dealing with the financials. It was and is my goal to play in England, Sporting you know that, everyone knows that, and there were conditions for things to be done.

“But Sporting understood that the value was not enough and I have to respect the decision."
