The 23-year-old, who’s full name is Éderzito António Macedo Lopes, has been targeted by manager Harry Redknapp to provide some additional competition to his front line.
Despite signing Emmanuel Adebayor on deadline day and having Jermaine Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko to choose from the Spurs boss still wants to bolster his attacking options and Eder has emerged as a target.
Scouts from North London have been watching his progress over the last few weeks and have been impressed by his displays for Academica who play in the Portugal’s top flight.
A cut price move to White Hart Lane now seems to be on the cards with Academica keen to sell him before his contract expires next year meaning he can leave for nothing.
The Guinea-born player has also attracted interest from Italian side Parma and German outfit Hannover although a move to the Premier League could prove to hard to resist.
It’s though Eder would command a fee of around £2 million should Spurs decided to make a move in January despite the striker being a free agent when his current deal comes to an end in the summer.
