The Sunday Mirror (01/05, p73) has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur appear set to battle Liverpool for Braga centre-back David Carmo this summer.

It has previously been reported that Tottenham are set to prioritize signing a left-wing centre-back to rival Ben Davies in this summer’s transfer window (The Athletic).

According to The Mirror, Carmo is one of the names on Spurs’ wishlist for the role.

The 22-year-old is by no means a regular in Braga’s starting XI but has shown great promise when opportunities have presented themselves over the past two seasons.

It is explained that Liverpool have scouted the centre-back on at least seven occasions this season and were preparing an offer for him.

However, Tottenham are now said to be ready to push the Reds for the youngster Braga’s services while Borrusia Dortmund are also said to be interested in the defender.

The Mirror add that Carmo is valued at around £20m ahead of the summer window.

Like most Spurs fans, I haven’t watched Carmo much. His name certainly isn’t as exciting as Bastoni, Torres or Botman, but the fact that Liverpool and Dortmund (two clubs that usually recruit very well) are credited with interest suggests the 22-year-old could be a gem hidden. .
