Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly considering a €50 million (£43 million) bid for Feyenoord’s striker, Santiago Gimenez. The 22-year-old player has been in outstanding form for his Dutch club in the 2023-24 season, netting 12 goals and providing two assists in nine appearances across various competitions.

Since moving from Cruz Azul to the Netherlands last year, the Mexican international has tallied an impressive 35 goals and five assists in 54 games for his current team. Although Feyenoord has him under contract until June 2027, they acknowledge the challenges of retaining him due to the increasing interest in his talents.

Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, and Inter Milan are all reportedly keen on acquiring the forward in the upcoming summer transfer window.

However, as per La Repubblica, Tottenham is also showing a strong interest. The North London club is actively seeking a replacement for Harry Kane after the England captain’s transfer to Bayern Munich.

According to the report, Feyenoord would be open to considering offers in the range of €50 million (£43 million) for the Mexican forward, who has scored four goals in 21 appearances for his national team.

Gimenez is currently on international duty with the Mexico squad and made a late appearance as a substitute in their 2-0 victory against Ghana in a recent friendly match on Saturday. The center-forward will now be vying for a chance to participate in the national team’s upcoming friendly against Germany in the United States on Tuesday.

Tottenham have been excellent this season under the management of Ange Postecoglou, with the capital giants entering the international break top of the Premier League table on 20 points.

No European football has allowed them to focus on domestic matters, and they have won six and drawn two of their opening eight league games of the 2023-24 campaign.

In the absence of Kane, Son Heung-min has taken on the goalscoring burden, netting six times in nine appearances, while four players – James MaddisonCristian RomeroRicharlison and Dejan Kulusevski – are on two goals.

There is a need for another centre-forward to arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and Gimenez appears to have been identified as the leading option.

However, Tottenham are likely to have to secure Champions League football for the 2024-25 campaign to stand a chance of signing him ahead of a number of major European clubs.
