Tottenham fans hate swap links to Joao Mario

Tottenham fans are not too happy with the latest transfer rumours, after reports in Italy suggested Joao Mario could be used in as a makeweight to send Mousa Dembele to Inter Milan.

Spurs fans absolutely loved last week’s reports on Dembele, as reports claimed Inter Milan would use Ivan Perisic to beat their Serie A rivals to the signing of 30 year-old Belgian.

The latest reports aren’t going down so well though, as Tuttosport (via TalkSPORT) have claimed it is actually Mario who will be used in the swap.

The attacking midfielder earned his big money move to Inter after an impressive Euro 2016 run with Portugal, but has struggled with the San Siro club, scoring just three times in 44 league appearances.

He moved to West Ham on loan in January so he does have some Premier League experience, but he is not exactly the type of signing Spurs fans want to see.

Pochettino’s fantastic young squad is in need of just one or two superstar signings to push them to the next level, and Mario just simply isn’t that.

Fans certainly don’t want the 25 year-old, who has 35 Portugal caps, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
