Tottenham are reportedly keen on signing Valencia striker Rodrigo during the summer window – and the club’s supporters on Twitter are split about the interest.
Italian news outlet Calcio Mercato claim that Spurs, Everton and Brighton are all lining up moves for the 27-year-old as they look to reinforce their front lines.
It is said Rodrigo has a release clause worth £105million, but the Premier League trio are “ready to show up” with bids of no less than £35million.
The Spaniard has been in excellent form this season and managed 16 goals in just 35 games across all competitions for the La Liga club.
His form, including goals in his last three league matches, has seen him included in the latest Spain national squad during the international break.
Spurs fans on social media have responded to reports linking them with Rodrigo and are split on whether he is the ideal back-up for goal king Harry Kane.
Some have already written off the centre-forward following the wretched spell of ex-Valencia man Roberto Soldado at Tottenham, while others believe he could be a Premier League sensation.
Here is a selection of the best messages on Twitter:

I was only discussing about him with a mate at work, definitely a good add-on for the team.
