Tottenham ‘intensify chase’ for Brazilian star after ‘scouts go on four separate visits’

Tottenham are reportedly eyeing a January swoop for one of Europe’s most exciting young defenders.

According to rumors, Tottenham Hotspur is intensifying their efforts to sign Benfica defender Morato prior to the January transfer window. After running out of choices, Lilywhites head coach Ange Postecoglou plans to boost his defensive ranks this winter.

Micky van de Ven had a spectacular debut in north London after Tottenham sealed a £43 million purchase for him in the summer.

Nevertheless, the 22-year-old Dutchman is anticipated to be sidelined until mid-February due to a hamstring injury he sustained in November’s 4-1 loss to Chelsea.

Postecoglou has been forced to utilize Eric Dier, who was in the summer shop window, and full-backs Emerson Royal and Ben Davies as his center-backs in recent weeks.
