The agent of Paraguayan midfielder Julio Cesar Torres has claimed that his client is heading for Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.
There does seem to be more than just a little bit of confusion about the deal, with Sports Witness claiming that the agent described the deal as a ‘mixed pre-agreement with a loan and a release clause’.
Quite how that works out remains to be seen, but the Spurs supporters have caught wind of the transfer claim on social media and have been offering their views.
Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld could both be heading away from the club this summer and it would be fair to say that not too many of the fans are excited about the largely-unknown Torres arriving ahead of the 2019-2020 campaign.
