Spurs player passed on for £41m now set to join Fulham
According to the Portuguese outlet, RegistrationCarlos Vinicius is expected to join Fulham.
It won’t be the Brazilian’s first time in the Premier League, of course, he spent the 2020/21 season at Tottenham on loan, but unfortunately his time in north London wasn’t the best.
Indeed, fresh from winning the Golden Boot in Portugal, Vinicius went to Spurs on loan with high expectations – a £41m call option was even included in the deal but, understandably, he couldn’t oust Harry Kane from the starting XI and he only scored one league goal that season.
Spurs, understandably, opted against using their option to buy the Brazilian, and another loan move to PSV followed.
However, he is now set to return to the Premier League and London with Fulham in a deal that could possibly be worth £10million.
Unfortunately for Vinicius, despite Fulham’s stature compared to Spurs, he may also struggle to get into the Cottagers’ starting XI in the same way he struggled at Tottenham.
Indeed, while Aleksandar Mitrovic isn’t quite Harry Kane’s level, he’s just as important to Fulham as Kane is to Spurs, and it’s hard to see the Serb being let down at any time.
However, Fulham have often looked like a 4-4-2 without possession this season with Andreas Pereira pushing alongside and even beyond Mitrovic on a number of points this season, so perhaps Vinicius could fit in. the team in place of Pereira at times as Fulham look to rotate their squad.
Vinicius will have his second chance to prove himself in the Premier League, and who knows? Perhaps the striker could show Tottenham they should have shelled out the £41million to sign him in 2021.
