Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing the potential acquisition of Real Sociedad’s rising star, Brais Mendez, who has emerged as an attractive transfer target.
Mendez, with a commanding height of 1.87 meters, is a dynamic attacking midfielder known for his versatility. He seamlessly adapts to various roles, including that of a right winger or even a central forward when the need arises.
The year 2022 saw Real Sociedad making a shrewd move, securing Mendez’s services from Celta Vigo for a substantial fee of 14 million euros. This acquisition proved to be a stroke of genius, as Mendez had an impactful debut season. He contributed significantly with 11 goals and eight crucial assists in 47 appearances.

As the 2023-24 season unfolds, Mendez appears to be on the cusp of an even more remarkable campaign. Thus far, he has already notched up five goals and provided five assists in a mere 14 games, demonstrating his growing influence within the team.
