Tottenham plan swoop for £87m rated striker as Harry Kane replacement

Posted by

Tottenham have identified Feyenoord striker Santiago Gimenez as the ideal replacement of Harry Kane.

The North London club wants to sign a striker this summer and they are giving priority to strengthen the attacking position over other deals.

According to GiveMeSport, Ange Postecoglou has identified Gimenez as their primary target and they want to open talks to complete his signature.

Gimenez improved his stats from the previous season, when he scored 23 goals in 45 games in all competitions, to 26 goals in 41 appearances this season.

After selling Kane to Bayern Munich last season, Spurs did not replace their striker and decided to deploy Son Heung-min upfront.

The South Korean attacker has performed well this season but the club prefer to play him in his preferred wide role next season and sign a proper number nine.

The Premier League club have made Gimenez their priority for this summer and they want to see what it would take to sign the striker by meeting the Dutch club to understand their terms.

Santiago Gimenez to Tottenham?

Not just Tottenham, but other teams are also turning to the Feyenoord attacker for solutions as they appear to be searching for additional firepower to enhance their choices in the final third.

The Mexico international is reportedly the target of Premier League rivals Arsenal, who might provide a tough competition for the attacker’s signing.

Tottenham would have to pay a hefty price tag

As per a report in 90min, Spurs would have to pay £87m to sign the 23-year-old striker.

Postecoglou’s men are set to finish fifth in the Premier League this season, losing out on a spot in the Champions League next season.

Their failure to replace Kane last summer have cost them a place in the Champions League, which they are prepared to address this summer.

Gimenez has showcased his goal scoring ability in the Eredivisie on a regular basis and he could be the ideal striker to lead the Tottenham attack.
