Gonçalo Inácio, a center-half for Sporting Lisbon, is apparently a target for Tottenham Hotspur once more. However, in order to recruit the player, the North Londoners may need to pay out his €60 million (£52 million) release clause.
Due to Micky van de Ven’s injury, the Lilywhites are searching for a replacement centre back as soon as possible during the January transfer window (Telegraph). Ange Postecoglou is eager to add more depth to his backline.
Currently, it seems that Jean-Clair Todibo is the top target in that area. According to Fabricio Romano, Spurs have initiated negotiations with the Frenchman’s current team, Nice.
Obviously, it makes little sense to concentrate on just one goal, which is why Spurs have been connected to several names in recent months.
Are Goncalo Inacio and the Spurs signing?
Gonzalo Inacio is one name that has surfaced more lately; it is believed that Tottenham is keeping an eye on the Portuguese defender (CaughtOffside).
Now that Sporting Lisbon is reportedly desperate to hang onto their best players during the winter transfer window, any club looking to recruit Inacio will need to spend heavily, according to Portuguese publication Journal de Notícias (via Sport Witness), there is more information available on the subject.
Tottenham is reportedly “coming back” for the player in an effort to make up for van van Ven’s absence, according to prior reports of interest in the player.
The only issue is that Spurs would have to shell out almost £52 million to get Inacio because Sporting is anticipated to demand that the player’s release clause be honoured.
According to the article, Inacio is being watched by Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool, and Sporting is reportedly expecting bids in January, according to Record (via Sport Witness).

Even if Inacio is an excellent player, we shouldn’t invest £50 million on him because he would be playing with Cristian Romero and van de Ven. Let’s concentrate on bringing Todibo inside.
