Carlos Vinicius vows to ‘bring home silverware’ after joining Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur unveil new signing Carlos Vinicius at Tottenham Hotspur Training Centre on October 02, 2020 in Enfield, England.

New Tottenham signing Carlos Vinicius has vowed to help end the club’s long wait for silverware after arriving on a season-long loan from Benfica.

Spurs confirmed the deal on Friday night, ending their search for striking reinforcements to ease the burden on star forward Harry Kane.

While the loan is initially for the season, for a fee of £2.7million, Tottenham have the option of making the deal permanent next summer for £38.2m.

Reports have claimed that the 25-year-old has already agreed a contract until 2025 should Spurs activate their option to buy.

Carlos Vinicius finished the 2019-20 season as the joint-top scorer in Portugal last season, and has targeted ending Tottenham’s 12-year wait for silverware following his move to north London.

“I wanted to say to everyone that together we'll taste success,” said the Brazilian, in a short video released by Spurs.

“I'm here to join this family to share your joy and bring home silverware.”

Spurs still hope to sign a centre-back before the international transfer window shuts on Monday.

Matt Doherty, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale have all joined this summer, but Jose Mourinho still wants to add Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar to his ranks.

Inter publicly refused to sell Skriniar, 25, following talks with Spurs last month but the London club are now ready to test their resolve with a formal bid and could make their move this weekend.

While Skriniar is Mourinho’s No1 target, Spurs are also interested in Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger, who could be allowed to move across London on loan provided he signs a one-year contract extension first, South Korean Kim Min-jae and Juventus' Merih Demiral.
