Contact made:Tottenham and Levy make first move to sign new “machine” for Postecoglou – report

The N17 outfit are expected to face stiff competition from two of their biggest rivals.


Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to go all out in a three-way battle to bring a new striker to the Premier League, according to reports.

What’s the latest Tottenham transfer news?

Edmond Tapsoba of Bayer Leverkusen, Armand Lauriente of Sassuolo, Ivan Toney of Brentford, and Conor Gallagher of Chelsea have all been linked to Spurs since the summer transfer window closed, but there have also been a few reports of departures.

In N17, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is reportedly looking for a way out after being dissatisfied with his lack of playing time under Ange Postecoglou this season, and Eric Dier is also reportedly considering leaving after attracting interest from AS Roma where he’s allegedly tempted to form a reunion with Jose Mourinho.

At the Feyenoord Stadium, Santiago Gimenez was a player who had been connected with a move to the capital before the deadline. It is said that bosses met with the center-forward’s agent during this meeting and decided to make an offer for the player.

The Lilywhites sent scouts to watch the Mexico international live in action recently as they set their sights on a second swoop at the start of the new year, though they are expected to face stiff competition from two of their biggest rivals in the top flight. Despite the deal for the 22-year-old having fallen through, 90min has revealed that it was recently abandoned.

Are Tottenham signing Santiago Gimenez?

In advance of the January transfer window, Tottenham, Arsenal, and Chelsea have all reportedly indicated interest in signing Gimenez.

After all presumably establishing contact, the three Premier League juggernauts are “set to battle” to get the attacker’s services at the start of 2024, with finding a new striker being the “number one priority” for all of his supporters.

Even though Alejo Veliz joined Feyenoord this past summer from Rosario Central, Postecoglou is thought to see the treasured possession as a long-term, direct successor for Harry Kane.

Gimenez has 38 involvements (33 goals and five assists) in 53 games since signing a contract with Feyenoord from CD Cruz Azul last summer. Jacek Kulig, a football talent scout, has already labeled him a “Mexican Machine” due to his incredibly prolific play in the final third.

Arne Slot’s £13k-per-week employee has also taken a total of 31 shots this season, more than any of his teammates in the Eredivisie, according to FBRef, demonstrating his eagerness to score goals even when the results aren’t always successful.

The left-footed ace, who is sponsored by Adidas, can play out wide on the right wing in addition to his regular role as the line-leader through the middle. His versatility is therefore likely to be yet another appealing quality to the manager along with the threat he poses, making this a no-brainer of a deal to pursue should the opportunity present itself.
