Tottenham Hotspur have joined West Ham in the race to sign winger Jovane Cabral, according to Portuguese publication A Bola.
The report claims that Jose Mourinho’s side have declared their own interest in the 22-year-old whilst a third London Premier League club, Fulham, have made an offer too.
The Hammers are said to have previously tabled a bid for the exciting Cape Verde international.
However, the Liga Primera side are believed to have received bids in the region of £13.4 million for the winger, some way short of their asking price of £31.4 million.
The report claims that the Lisbon club would be willing to discuss a transfer with should a bid of around £20 million be made, with additional sell-on clauses in place to take the eventual fee closer to their own asking price.

After missing much of the campaign through injury, Cabral returned to fitness to score six times and provide three assists for Sporting last season in only 21 matches in all competitions.
David Moyes could do with a player of Cabral’s quality in his squad – someone capable of playing across the front three and with an eye for the spectacular.
The winger, who has been at Sporting CP since arriving from his homeland side Gremio Nhagar in 2014, is now the attention of interest from multiple top-level clubs and could be ready to take the next step in his blossoming career.
If West Ham do want him, they might need to act fast incase Spurs decide to make an offer of their own.
