According to a recent report by 90 Min, Tottenham’s scouting team traveled to Amsterdam last weekend to closely observe Feyenoord’s striker, Santiago Gimenez. Gimenez has been in remarkable form since cementing his place in Feyenoord’s starting lineup. In his latest outing against Ajax, he continued to impress by scoring twice and providing an assist, bringing his total to 19 goals in 25 Eredivisie matches this year. Unfortunately, the 22-year-old was denied a chance to complete a hat trick as the game was suspended due to crowd disturbances at the Johan Cruyff Arena around the hour mark.
Tottenham were among scouts looking at Gimenez
The report explains that the Lilywgites had their eye on the Mexican international during the summer while West Ham United failed with a move for him during the previous transfer window.
Gimenez is also said to be attracting interest from across the continent, with the likes of Benfica, Borussia Dortmund, Inter, Juventus, Milan and Napoli thought to be keeping a close eye on him.
Spurs Web Opinion
I am usually suspicious of recruiting attacking talent from the Eredivisie since they seldom produce similar results in the Premier League. For every Luis Suarez, there are countless Vincent Janssens, Afonso Alves, and Cody Gakpos who are struggling to adjust.
