Mexican striker Santiago Gimenez has seemingly emerged as a key target for Tottenham Hotspur, with the 22-year-old attracting attention following his impressive goal-scoring record at Dutch club Feyenoord.
Since his arrival at Feyenoord last summer, Gimenez has showcased remarkable prowess, netting 41 goals and contributing 6 assists across 61 appearances.
His debut season saw him bag 15 league goals and 3 assists, and this term, he’s already scored 18 goals and 3 assists in just 16 games.
Gimenez’s exceptional performances have attracted interest from a number top clubs in Europe , including Tottenham.
Fabrizio Romano has previously confirmed Tottenham’s admiration for the player and claimed that the club has already sent their people to watch him play several times.
The report claims that Spurs are among the clubs ‘following him closely’ and that the player ‘could leave’ as early as January if they can fork out €50m for him.
Signing the 22-year-old Mexican striker would be a significant statement of intent for Tottenham, especially if they manage to outcompete several top clubs vying for his signature.
But it remains to be seen whether Daniel Levy will be willing to spend the cash on him.
There is no doubt that Tottenham need another striker having not replaced Harry Kane yet who left the club for Bayern Munich for a huge amount of money.
With Heung-min Son set to be unavailable for a month in January and Richarlison struggling to perform, failure to sign another attacker could hurt Tottenham’s chances of finishing in the top 4.
