Tottenham’s search for a frontline striker continues with the club keeping tabs on Santiago Jimenez (22-Feyenoord). As they continue to send scouts to the stadium, it has been suggested that a January transfer could be on the cards for a £45 million bid.레모나토토 도메인
European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said on his YouTube channel on Thursday (July 14), “It’s important that Tottenham continue to pursue Jimenez. They know the player well and continue to send scouts to him. Jimenez could leave in January for £45 million.”
Following the departure of Harry Kane (30-Bayern Munich) last summer, Tottenham have been linked with a number of strikers to fill the void. However, manager Ange Postecoglou (58, Australia) found a solution by moving Son Heung-min (31) up front. With eight goals and one assist in 12 league games, Son has been the solution for Postecoglou.
The problem, however, is January. Son will have to leave the team for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar. Without him, the 26-year-old will have to fill in, and he hasn’t exactly inspired confidence in Postecoglou. Furthermore, Saudi Arabia have been linked with a move for him in the January transfer window, which could see him leave the club.
Spurs are looking to solve their problems with a new striker. One of the strikers Spurs are keeping an eye on is Jimenez. The Mexican international striker has been on fire in the Dutch Eredivisie this season. He leads the league in scoring with 13 goals and three assists in 12 league games.
Jimenez’s ability to sniff out goals in the box makes him a great fit for Tottenham. In addition to his off-the-ball movement, Jimenez’s left-footed kick, link-up play, and speed are also strengths. With Spurs having more players capable of creating chances than in previous years, Jimenez has become a priority to add to their attack.
Spurs are not alone in their pursuit of Jimenez, however. Premier League rivals Arsenal, Chelsea, and West Ham have also joined the chase for Jimenez, while Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are also interested. The January transfer window is set to be a fierce one.
