Tottenham Hotspur reportedly register an interest in signing Santos midfielder Neilton.

Santos midfielder Neilton has reportedly become a target of Tottenham Hotspur.

Neilton is currently in talks with the Brazilian club regarding a new contract, but the 19-year-old is reportedly demanding nearly three times more than Santos are prepared to offer.

According to The Express, that has alerted some of the top clubs in Europe, including Spurs, with many sides eager to try to get the winger to sign a pre-contract agreement.

Neilton, who has scored four goals in 14 appearances this season, could cost in the region of £7m.
