Tottenham are scrambling to sign a striker to ease the pressure on Son Heung-min. Mexican superstar Santiago Jimenez, who plays in the Netherlands, is on Spurs’ radar.

As British media outlet CutOffside reported on Aug. 28 (ET), “Tottenham have made finding a replacement for Harry Kane their top priority in the summer transfer window. They plan to bring in at least one new striker. Their top priority is Feyenoord star Santiago Jimenez,” the report said.

Jimenez, born in 2001, is a 1.82-meter tall, traditional No. 9-type center forward. He’s the kind of orthodox attacker Spurs are looking for after relying on flanker Son Heung-min since Kane’s departure. He arrived in Europe in the summer of 2022, joining Feyenoord from Mexican side Cruz Azul.

Jimenez impressed from his debut season. He exploded for 15 goals in 32 games in the Eredivisie. He also scored five goals in nine Europa League games. This season, he has 21 goals in 25 league games. 토토사이트 He also scored two goals in four Champions League games. That’s 24 goals in 35 games in all competitions.

‘Tottenham want to strengthen their forward line,’ says CutOffside. Jimenez has been Tottenham’s number one target for a while now, and he’s in great form. Spurs are confident of signing Jimenez this summer. The negotiations are intensifying,” he said.

Feyenoord brought Jimenez to Tottenham for just €6 million.

His price tag has soared to €45 million in less than two years, but it’s still cheaper than when Spurs bought him from Everton. At the time, Tottenham reportedly paid €60 million.

It’s possible that Tottenham could sell him and reorganize their attacking lineup. According to CutOffside, the next best options if Jimenez falls through are Dusan Blahovic (Juventus), Jonathan David (Lille), Evan Ferguson (Brighton) and Ivan Toney (Brentford).

Spurs will be looking to add backup as well as immediate depth. 파워볼실시간 ‘Spurs’ forward reinforcements may not end there,’ says CutOffside. They are in positive overlap with Genoa for the signing of Albert Gudmundsson. Gudmundsson is an Icelandic international. Genoa want to cash in on Gudmundsson.

If Tottenham add a central striker, Son Heung-min could return to his natural position on the flank.
