Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Feyenoord striker Santiago Gimenez.
According to a report from Medio Tiempo, Tottenham view the 22-year-old striker as one of their ‘main priorities’ as they look to improve their attacking options.
The London outfit have been overly dependent on Son Heung-min for goals this season. The South Korean international needs more support in the attack. Players like Richarlison have not been able to live up to the expectations and Spurs must invest in a reliable goalscorer.
The report claims that Gimenez is a priority target for them and it remains to be seen whether Tottenham can get the deal done. The striker is reportedly a target for clubs like Chelsea and West Ham United as well.
Gimenez has been in spectacular form this season, scoring 19 goals in the league. He helped Feyenoord win the league title last season. The striker is certainly good enough for the Premier League and he could transform Tottenham in the final third.
A move to the Premier League will be an exciting opportunity for the player and he will look to prove himself in English football.
It will be interesting to see if the Dutch outfit are prepared to sanction the departure of a key player midway through the season. They will probably hope to hold onto the 22-year-old Mexican until the end of the season and sell him in the summer. Feyenoord will struggle to replace in this month if he leaves.
