Spurs attempt to swoop in on Fernandes deal

Share This Post

In what is becoming a slightly hectic January window for the club, Spurs have made a move to hijack West Ham’s loan deal for Gedson Fernandes, making an 18 month loan offer of their own. The North London side are looking to bring a midfielder into the club following an injury to Moussa Sissoko that will see the French international miss the next three months of action.

Fernandes’ move to West Ham is one that has been rumbling on for a little while however it is now known that the Hammers have secured a deal in principle for the Portuguese midfielder, believing his arrival at the club was simply a formality from this point. The 11th hour interest from Spurs throws a spanner into the works, with Fernandes set to arrive in London this weekend it is believed he will make a decision on which club he wishes to sign for once he is in the country.

Chelsea have also lumped in with a loan offer however it doesn’t seem as though they’re entirely in the running with this deal. The Blues have offered the same 18 month loan length however their deal includes an obligation to buy for £55 million at the end of the spell (given than Fernandes would play in a set number of games in that time). It is also thought that West Ham have offered Benfica a similar deal however their offer is slightly lower, at around £30 million, though the number of games to trigger the obligation is also lower.

All in all it seems as like the final decision will be coming down to Fernandes. Strangely it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see him opt for signing with West Ham. Granted he will be playing first team football at Spurs for the next three months if he decides to head to the Lilywhites, however it’s unknown what his role would be once Moussa Sissoko returns. West Ham can offer the midfielder regular first team football, something which is likely far more appealing to Fernandes at this stage of his career.
