Liverpool report £46m pre-tax loss - Punch Newspapers

According to the Portuguese publication O Jogo, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are closely monitoring Sporting CP star Pedro Goncalves in preparation for a potential transfer during the forthcoming transfer window.

The 25-year-old established himself as one of the finest players in Liga Portugal during the last few years after moving to the Estadio Jose Alvalade back in 2020, aiding his team in winning a league title, Super Cup, and two League Cups.

Several major Premier League clubs have expressed interest in Goncalves after being pleased by the midfielder’s recent performances, but they have not yet made an official move to sign him.

O Jogo reports that Tottenham is considering a move for Goncalves and may decide to make a serious offer.

The report further claims that after scoring an emphatic goal against Arsenal in the Europa League knockout stage last term, the Portuguese’s valuation has now risen and Sporting are adamant that they don’t want to let him leave unless his £69m release clause is triggered by his potential suitor such as Spurs. So Tottenham will have to spend big to acquire his service in the upcoming window should they formalise their interest.

However, O Jogo states that Liverpool are also weighing up a swoop for Goncalves so the North London club are set to face fierce competition from the Merseyside club in getting any potential deal done for the midfielder.

Goncalves is a versatile player as he can play anywhere across the middle of the park and also can be deployed in the left-wing position. He is technically sound, can play threading passes between the lines, is excellent at taking penalties, and has the efficiency of finishing off his chances.

The Portugal international is an extremely talented player and possesses high potential so he would be a shrewd signing for Tottenham or Liverpool if either club sign him over the coming months. However, it is going to be interesting to see whether the Lilywhites or the Reds eventually opt to formalise their interest in signing him in the upcoming window.
