Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly ahead of Manchester United in the race to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly moved ahead of Manchester United in the race to secure the signature of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The Portugal international has emerged as one of European football's most sought-after players thanks to his contribution of 28 goals and 14 assists this season.

United have a long-standing interest in the 24-year-old, who is currently representing his country at the UEFA Nations League Finals.

However, Record claims that Spurs are now regarded as the most likely destination for Fernandes due to Christian Eriksen's desire to take on a new challenge.

The sale of Eriksen would free up the funds to push through a deal for Fernandes, while also reassuring the playmaker that he would be regarded as first choice by Mauricio Pochettino.

Liverpool are another team who have been linked with an approach ahead of the start of the next campaign.
