Pool, Spurs and Sevilla battle for Portuguese star !

Liverpool, Tottenham and Sevilla are all set to make approaches for Sporting midfielder, Adrien Silva in the January transfer window according to reports in The Sun today.

Silva prefers to be played in the centre of midfield and is the captain of the Portuguese national U 19 side. He has performed well for both club and country since making his breakthrough in both sides and has obviously caught the attention of several scouts. "I know English scouts have watched me," said the 19 year old in an interview with The Sun.

Silva also mentioned in the interview that some day he would like to play in England. Despite all the hype about this young talent it is thought that it will only take £3 million to sign Silva from the Portuguese side.
