‘From What I’m Hearing’: Romano Gives Update On Tottenham’s Chase For ‘Fantastic’ £43 Million Chelsea Target

Tottenham Hotspur are flying high at the start of the 2023/24 Premier League season even after losing star striker Harry Kane to Bayern Munich in the summer. Despite that, it appears that Ange Postecoglou might be looking into signing his direct replacement sometime in 2024. 

Tottenham’s Feelings on Gimenez Clarified

According to Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham recognizes the talent of Feyenoord striker Santiago Gimenez, who has been making an impact in the Eredivisie this year. Spurs have reportedly sent scouts to observe his performances in more detail, but they have been keeping an eye on the Dutch team since the previous season because they are interested in manager Arne Slot.

With that being said, the journalist reaffirms that the Lilywhites will continue to monitor the progress of the 22-year-old striker, who has been attracting interest from other teams, including Chelsea. Romano claims that it’s difficult to exactly state how much he could be sold for next year, but that it seems likely that it’ll be around the £43 million region. Spurs are yet to spend their Harry Kane money to sign a new out-and-out striker and they are tracking the Mexican’s development and analyzing if he can be an ideal successor to him.

Who Is Santiago Gimenez?

The 22-year-old forward has been on fire for Feyenoord in the Netherlands and taken the Eredivisie by storm so

thus far. In just 10 league games thus far, he has already tallied 13 goals and three assists. Gimenez recently scored a brace in his team’s 3-1 victory over Lazio in the UEFA Champions League.

From his heroics the previous season, when he scored 15 goals in 32 league games, he has gone a long way. Gimenez is an agile, skillful goal scorer who excels in the last third of the game. It’s interesting to note that his father will handle his future negotiations as he does not currently have an agent. The Mexican forward is expected to draw more interest from major clubs if he can keep up his goal-scoring heroics until the end after Feyenoord legend Mario Been called him “fantastic” earlier this season.


‘Didn’t work out at Tottenham’ – Manager thinks Levy sold a ‘devastating’ player

Tony Mowbray believes that the sky is the limit for former Tottenham winger Jack Clarke, who has made an exceptional start to the season at Sunderland.

Clarke was seen as one of the most promising young talents in the EFL when Tottenham shelled out £10m to sign

2019 saw him leave Leeds United.

During his three years in North London, the winger never lived up to his full potential, and he also performed poorly on loan at Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers.

Nevertheless, the 22-year-old has flourished since completing a permanent transfer to Sunderland last year, and he is now top of the Championship goalscoring charts after scoring nine goals in his first 14 games of play.

A few weeks ago, TEAMtalk revealed that Burnley, Brighton, and Crystal Palace were showing interest in the Black Cats star. The report claimed that Spurs had a 50% sell-on clause for the player.

Jack Clarke

Did Spurs make a mistake by selling Jack Clarke?

Mowbray has now spoken about Clarke’s time at Tottenham, suggesting that the fact Spurs paid a sizeable fee for him is evidence that the youngster was always extremely talented.

“Jack is a wonderful character,” the Sunderland manager said on ITV’s English Football League Highlights program. an individual personality. a young child who joined Spurs for £10 million after leaving Leeds. It didn’t work out at Tottenham for any reason.

“However, without talent, you don’t get sold for £10 million. There was always talent. My goal in trying to solve Jack Clarke’s enigma was to truly show him how much I valued and cared for him.

Mowbray doesn’t think the former Tottenham player’s goals will stop coming anytime soon.

“How many (goals) can he get this season?” he asked The Mirror. If we can maintain our current level of positive play while having offensive outbursts, then

“He has a huge aerobic capacity to keep running. He can run fast all day. A huge attribute for any footballer. He will keep scoring and hurting teams and mixing his game up. I hope he is enjoying his football, and the club can

make every effort to retain him for a prosperous season.

Throughout his tenure at Spurs, as well as his loan stints at Stoke and QPR, Clarke did not demonstrate any qualities that would indicate he is a good enough player to play in the Premier League.

But since moving to the North East, he seems to have developed as a player and gained a lot more confidence. The 22-year-old is now demonstrating why Tottenham chose to take a chance on him.

Spurs might be tempted to re-sign the winger if he keeps improving as he has over the past 18 months, especially since the sell-on clause would only require them to pay half the asking price.
