Despite selling Harry Kane to Bayern Munich for a lot of money, Tottenham never replaced the striker in a like for like deal.

They bought Alejo Véliz, who will be one for the future, but Ange Postecoglou chose to use the players already at the club for his fluid football, which has worked quite well to date.

However, that hasn’t stopped some suggestions that a striker could be bought in the next transfer window, and L’Equipe, in a video presenting Santiago Gimenez to their audience, mention Tottenham as an interested party.

After talking up the Mexico international, who has widely been linked with Tottenham in the past, they explain that the latest news suggest Spurs, as well as other clubs are ‘following him closely’.

In fact, they add that for €50m, he ‘could leave’ as early as January.

For that to happen, we would need to see Daniel Levy open his wallet for a player currently in the Eredivisie, and while many have made the leap from the Netherlands to England in a smooth fashion, there might be some hesitation in the London offices at that price.

One to keep an eye on, especially since Giménez has carried on his good form into the current season, with 18 goals in 16 games in all competitions to date.
