Tottenham Hotspur are one of several European clubs eyeing a move for Racing youngster Charly Alcaraz.
That’s according to Marca, who say Spurs are among a host of clubs tracking the 19-year-old midfielder.
The newspaper explains that Alcaraz ‘enters Europe’s orbit’ after being moulded by current Racing manager Fernando Gago.
That has put him ‘in the sights’ of the big clubs in Europe, who are ready to ‘make the jump’ to try to secure his signature.
Alcaraz is the ‘golden nugget’ of the Argentine mine and seems ready to follow in the steps of Inter Milan striker Lautauro Martinez.
Clubs in Europe are ‘approaching with interest’, and Tottenham are one of them, having ‘asked more or less in depth’ about his situation and sent scouts to ‘follow him closely’.
Marca list those interested, with Tottenham among Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Juventus, Inter and AC Milan in showing interest. Arsenal, Wolves and PSV are also keen.
The major problem is that Racing have tied the youngster to a deal until 2026 and will ‘not make it easy’ for him to leave the club any time soon.
That deal also includes a $25m release clause, although the club are asking for around $20m for a deal to take place, with those figures imilar to the ones that took Martinez to Inter Milan.
If you were wondering, $20m works out at around £16.4m at the current exchange rate.
Whether any of the interested parties, like Tottenham, will pay such a figure isn’t mentioned, but the midfielder is ‘attracting more and more attention’ thanks to his performances and the fact he ‘does not stop growing’.
Racing’s structure are helping him to mature, and they do not want to let him go anytime soon, although a serious bid from any of the suitors in Europe could always change that in the coming months.
