On Wednesday morning, The London Evening Standard journalist Dan Kilpatrick tweeted that Tottenham Hotspur were in talks with Porto over a possible swoop for forward Ze Luis.
There is no question that the Premier League club are currently stretched in the final third of the field with Harry Kane out until April following hamstring surgery.
It appears that Ze Luis will not be arriving but that is not the worst thing in the world, according to some of the club’s supporters at least.

No clues whatsoever: Which seasons do these iconic Spurs images belong to?
Others, though, have viewed the update as another blow for the club, who have allegedly also dropped their interest in AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek.
Absolute joke Dan, first Dybala now Ze Luis. How many more hits can this fan base take?

The 28-year-old also found the back of the net in the Champions League earlier this season but failed to score in four Europa League group outings.
