Transfer News: Tottenham Adds Carlos Vinicius as Kane Support


LONDON (AP) — Tottenham ended its search for a new striker when Carlos Vinicius joined the English Premier League club on loan from Benfica on Friday.

The 25-year-old Brazilian, who was joint top goalscorer in Portugal’s Primeira Liga last season with 18 in 32 matches, will stay with the north London club for the full campaign.

Spurs will pay a loan fee of three million euros ($3.5 million) with the option of buying Vinicius for 45 million euros ($53 million) permanently at the end of the season.

Vinicius’ move means Tottenham finally has another forward to ease the workload on Harry Kane. Vinicius will replace Fernando Llorente, who left the club last year.
