Tottenham’s €50m minimum bid required if they want to secure the signing of top class 35-goal striker

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham continue to be linked with highly rated Mexican striker Santiago Gimenez.

The 22-year-old’s agent confirmed the North London club’s interest in his client to Dutch outlet ED. He said:

“Santi is one of the top ten (most coveted) players in Europe.”

“So even Tottenham Hotspur (are interested). Many clubs (want him). Milan, Inter, Napoli and Lazio. Atletico were very interested.”

And now Italian outlet La Repubblica has also mentioned Tottenham as one of the many suitors interested in signing the Feyenoord star.

According to the report, Spurs, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are all keen on signing the striker but the Dutch club currently values him at €50m.

The Mexican international has scored 35 goals and assisted 5 in 54 appearances for the Dutch club since joining the club last summer.

In his debut season for Feyenoord, he scored 15 goals and assisted 3. This season he already has 12 goals and 2 assists in 8 games.

If he continues his current form, his price will only keep going up.

The report adds that the Dutch club has ‘blocked any transfer’ for the upcoming January transfer window and any talks of a transfer will have to wait until next summer.

But it further adds that it will not be easy for interested parties to come to an agreement with the Dutch club since their demands might not be easy to ‘satisfy’.

TBH Says:

A move for the 22-year-old Mexican would certainly show a statement of intent from Spurs who if they are successful in signing him will have beaten several top clubs to his signature.
