The English media is reporting that Tottenham are close to securing a deal for Valencia starlet, Rafa Mir. The 19 year broke into the club’s first team this season and has been a revelation. He has been linked with moves to several top teams this season, but Spurs seem to be making a more serious approach.
Per the source, Tottenham have been scouting the youngster throughout this season and they believe that he is ripe for first team action.
The Spanish media claim that the player’s current release clause stands at £7 million, but if he makes just 2 more first team appearances, he would trigger a clause in his deal that would take that fee to £25 million.
Per the source Tottenham would do well to make a move for the youngster now, because when the transfer window opens fully, there would be interest from bigger teams for the player.
It would be beneficial for Mir if he spends one more year at Valencia and continue his development. However, Tottenham would likely send him back on loan to Valencia after signing him to a permanent deal.
