For Pepe of Porto, Tottenham reportedly offered €60 million.

Tottenham reportedly made a €45 million + €15 million offer for FC Porto’s Pepe yesterday, according to Portuguese daily A Bola (sounds uncannily like the fatal and highly contagious disease).

According to the Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Tottenham reportedly made a €45 million plus €15 million bid for FC Porto’s Pepe yesterday (sounds uncannily like the deadly and contagious disease).
Late on Wednesday night, A Bola published a story claiming that FC Porto had rejected the €60 million all-in offer right away. The Brazilian attacker for Porto has a price tag of between €70 and €75 million.Some facets of Spurs’ alleged pursuit of the Brazilian make sense, despite being rather confusing. Pepe is quite adaptable and can switch between several offensive positions.

He has played every position on the field except for central defence, left back, and goalkeeper, with left midfield and left winger being his favoured positions.All five of the most advanced positions in the Spurs’ 4-3-3 would be covered by such versatility, giving Ange numerous backup options. He could fill the No. 8 position, the left or right wing, or the No. 9 position.


Spurs‘ first objective is to find Richarlison up-front cover, but Pepe has only made a small number of No. 9 appearances.The puzzlement begins at that point.Good thing Pepe is in his mid-20s. He didn’t exactly put up impressive offensive stats, however, scoring just five goals in 55 games in 2022-23.

But he did add ten aids. Nevertheless, those figures are in no way impressive, especially in light of Portugal’s Primeira Liga’s lower quality.We still need confirmation from a reputable mainstream English magazine, to reiterate. Even if Spurs did submit the proposal, it would be meaningless unless they raised it by €10 million.


Spending €70 million on a player who has only scored five or less goals is, in my opinion, pretty odd.However, Spurs scouts have access to an endless supply of analytically driven data, such as radar plots and Opta graphs.It seems incredibly out of character for the north London club to spend up to €70 million on a player of Pepe’s relatively mediocre profile. A Bola and/or Spurs’ upper brass must know something I don’t.

His contract with Porto expires in 2027, and it has a €75 million release clause, which only serves to make the situation odd.
