Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on the Brazilian striker Marcos Leonardo.
The 20-year-old striker is highly rated around Europe and Tottenham are one of the clubs watching over him. A report from 90 Min claims that Tottenham were monitoring his performance in the under-20 World Cup with Brazil.
The striker is reportedly valued at £20 million and it will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to make a move for him in January. The striker is expected to be on the move during the winter transfer window according to his agent.
Leonardo has scored 21 goals this calendar year and he is expected to develop into a top-class striker. It is no secret that Spurs need to invest in a quality forward and Leonardo could be the ideal long-term replacement for Harry Kane.
The Santos striker is a prodigious talent with a bright future ahead of him and regular football in the Premier League could accelerate his development. He has the tools to develop into a reliable goalscorer for Tottenham and he could help share the goalscoring burden with Son Heung-min.
The reported asking price is quite affordable for a club with Tottenham’s resources and the move could even prove to be a bargain if the youngster manages to fulfil his potential.
There is no doubt that he has the attributes to succeed in the Premier League and the player is likely to be tempted if Tottenham come forward with a concrete proposal.
It would be a major step up in his career a he will look to prove himself at the highest level.
