Menino has a £51million release clause in his contract but Mundo Deportivo write how an offer of around £13m would be too difficult to turn down.

Although that figure could rise if the interested parties start a bidding war.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will be handed funds to put his own stamp on the squad in the summer, especially if they land Champions League football.

Menino, who is dubbed the ‘Brazilian Yaya Toure’ by Team Talk, has been praised for his box-to-box displays this season.

Despite his age he has been an integral figure in Palmeiras’ season making 27 league appearances.

He is also able to play at right-back and Chelsea are fans of his versatility.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho wants to add energy to his midfield and eye Menino as the perfect addition.

Brazilian compatriot Lucas Moura may be able to convince Menino to join the North London club over their league rivals.

But the lure of playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus may prove too difficult to turn down.
