Striker from Braga in Portugal, €30 million figure being mentioned so would be very surprised if this is true, unless we’re looking at him for the summer if Toney leaves.

"There’s no information on Brentford’s moves to sign Vitinha for now, with the newspaper only claiming they’re ‘keeping an eye’ on his potential."

I've no doubt BFC are 'keeping an eye on' numerous young strikers in places like Portugal's lesser clubs

And if Bees really are keen, but are currently only competing with Fiorentina, then good luck to Braga in holding him to a €30m release clause, when you see just how small the club is (figures in € millions)::

SC Braga is hardly a Portuguese lesser club.

SC Braga is hardly a Portuguese lesser club.
In terms of size, support, revenue or trophies, they're nowhere near the Big Three of Benfica, Sporting or Porto.

They've had some moderate success in their domestic cup and one great run in the Europa League. Then again, so have eg Wigan, Boro or Fulham in this country.

I can't name any Braga players, past or present. Have there been any good ones?
Francisco Trincao, Willy Boly, and Pedro Neto off the top of my head from an English football standpoint. They’ve sold plenty of players on to the big Portuguese clubs or to, say, Atletico Madrid or Lazio. Also have a couple players like David Carmo who are very highly rated right now with room to grow.

They’re essentially the next biggest club behind the big three over there and get consistent international appearances as a result, even if they are a leap behind Porto/Benfica/Sporting of course. They definitely produce good talent.
