Tottenham Hotspur have secured the signing of striker Carlos Vinicius on a season-long loan from Portuguese club Benfica.
The 25-year-old, who will be wearing the no. 45 shirt, was the joint top goalscorer in Portugal’s Premiera Liga last term, scoring 18 goals in 32 games.
While speaking to Spurs TV, Vinicius said he is keen to achieve his objective of scoring goals for Jose Mourinho's Lilywhites as they look to 'bring joy to everyone at Spurs'.
“As a player, you’ve always got to be ready. Wherever you go, you’ve got to be ready," he said. "Thankfully, I achieved my individual goals last year at Benfica, where I was top goalscorer, and now I’m here to work with my team-mates to make our people happy and to help the club to achieve its goals.
"In doing so, I want to achieve my own objectives, which means scoring goals. If I score goals, I’ll be helping my team – and that way, everyone benefits.”
“I think that Spurs only stand to benefit,” he replied when asked about operating in the same squad as Harry. “It’s a big club with great players, I’m happy to be here and to share a dressing room with them. I’m going to keep learning every day. Together we’ll show strength in support of the club and the club’s aims so that we can bring joy to everyone at Spurs.”
The frontman finished the 2019-20 campaign with 24 goals and 13 assists in 46 appearances in all competitions.
Sky Sports News reported that Tottenham have rejected a second loan bid from PSG for England international Dele Alli.
It is believed the Ligue 1 giants are stepping up their interest in the midfielder before the transfer window shuts down on Monday.
Spurs sources are adamant he’s going nowhere and expect him to fight for his place in Jose Mourinho's squad.
