Tottenham target Antonio Nusa is set to miss out on a move to Brentford after failing a medical, according to reports. The 18-year-old Clubb Brugge star appeared to be on his way to west London despite being linked with a move to Tottenham but will be staying where he is for the time being.
Nusa has starred for Club Brugge this season and has featured 16 times in the Jupiler Pro league. The winger also bagged a goal and an assist on his debut for Norway in September and has gone on to win four caps for his country.
Tottenham had reportedly been willing to pay more than £26million for Nusa and may have viewed him as a long-term successor to club captain Son Heung-min. But Brentford were said to have struck an agreement to sign the teenage sensation on Sunday.
The Bees had agreed a fee of £25.6m with Club Brugge to get their hands on the ace. But transfer expert Ben Jacobs has now claimed that the deal is almost certainly off after knee and back issues were highlighted during Nusa’s medical. And the knee issue is understood to be potentially quite serious.
