As Tottenham fans, and probably the whole of the Premier League, know by now, Mauricio Pochettino is trying to find a new striker to provide some backup for Harry Kane.
Starting in January, the search nearly came to an end with Fulham’s Moussa Dembélé, but that never happened, meaning it’s still ongoing.
However, it could soon all be coming to an end if Gazzetta dello Sport are to be believed, as the London club are close to getting a deal done with Roma’s Tony Sanabria.
The Paraguayan striker has apparently already agreed terms with the Premier League side, and all that needs to be sorted now is the fee with the Serie A club, which Rubin Kazan are also prepared to meet.
Needing funds to buy a new centre-midfielder (ideally Fiorentina’s Milan Badelj), Luciano Spalletti and co. are asking for €15m (£11.5m) for the 20-year-old; a fee that should prove anything but problematic for Daniel Levy.
The youngster spent last season on loan with Sporting Gijon in Spain’s first division, making 30 appearances and picking up 11 goals and an assist along the way.
