Journalist Jorge Nicola has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have communicated their intention to make a bid for Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick.

Endrick is yet to break into the senior team at Palmerias, but the 16-year-old’s performances for the Brazilian club’s youth teams have reportedly attracted interest from several heavy hitters across Europe.

Nicola revealed on his YouTube channel Canal do Nicola (23/09/22 as relayed by Sport Witness) that the striker is on the radars of three Premier League sides in Spurs, Manchester United and Newcastle United.

The journalist dismisses suggestions that Barcelona recently held a meeting with Palmeiras regarding Endrick, saying the Catalan club haven’t spoken about the player since February.

Nicola claims Barca have told representatives for the teenager they are ‘unable’ to join the battle for the player, but he claims the three aforementioned Premier League clubs have ‘promised offers for the foreseeable future. very distant”.

However, the Brazilian journalist adds that as things stand, it is Paris Saint-Germain who ‘seem to be the favourites’ to sign Endrick.

Finally, Nicola also reveals that the youngster has a €40m (£35.7m) release clause in his contract with Palmeiras.

Bringing players from South America straight into the Premier League is always a huge risk as you never know how they would cope with the intensity of English football.

For this reason, I would expect a club from La Liga, Serie A or Ligue 1 to punt Endrick rather than the three Premier League sides mentioned by Nicola.
