With 15 goals in 13 games so far this season, Giminez has emerged as one of Europe’s most exciting strikers. Several Premier League teams, including Tottenham (90 minutes), are rumored to be interested in the center-forward.
The 22-year-old is expected to travel to England in January, according to reports earlier this week from TV Play (via Sport Witness). The Feyenoord man is said to have attracted “great interest” from Tottenham.
The article also stated that Gimenez is being watched by Ange Postecoglou’s team with “great attention” and that they are “willing to accommodate” him in their lineup. Feyenoord is believed to value the striker at between €45 and €50 million (£39.2 and £43.5 million).
Tottenham are leading the way for Santiago Gimenez
After revealing that he serves as a consultant to both the striker and his father, who also acts as his agent, Pagniello has identified Spurs as one of the top candidates to recruit the player.
TuttoMercatoWeb was informed by him that “we have already discussed with Atletico Madrid.” The family contacted me once he arrived at Feyenoord, and since then, we have a relationship with his father, who is currently Santi’s representative, and I serve as their consultant.
We discussed it with Napoli, Lazio, Inter, and Milan, but in my opinion, he may be ideal for both Juventus and Inter. They would be his greatest choices.
“His worth increased from 10 million to 40 million in less than a year, and I have been encouraging different clubs to have faith in him.” Tottenham and Real Madrid are currently the teams closest to him.
The strongest proof to far that Spurs are genuinely exploring a January move for Gimenez comes from Pagniello’s statement. Given his age and stated price range, the Mexican seems to be the kind of signing that Tottenham typically pursues.
