Player Stats

Jota, whose real name is Joao Filipe has made more than 40 appearances for the Portuguese side’s reserve team.

The teenage striker got his promotion to the senior squad last month and his debut came against Dinamo Zagreb in Europa League.

The 19-year-old can either operate as a winger or a centre-forward.

At the international level, Jota has scored 20 goals for Portugal’s U-17 and U-19 teams.

He was the leading goal scorer (5) of UEFA U-19 championship where Portugal went on to lift the title. The forward was awarded the best young player of the month for August 2018.

Why should Spurs sign?

Jota would help Mauricio Pochettino to rebuild his attacking options for the next season.

Difficulties

Spurs may face heavy competition from their rival clubs that include their North London rivals the Gunners.

The teenager has a contract that bounds him with his current club till 2022.

Spurs became the first team to not make any signings since 2015 and the Argentine manager looks to break the drought this time.

The Premier League side ensured their Champion League quarter-final berth after defeating Borussia Dortmund. They will be facing Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

However, Spurs suffered three defeats in their last four matches and are currently third in the Premier League table.
