Tottenham Hotspur are targeting Santiago Jimenez (Feyenoord, 22). The proposed transfer fee is more than £60 million (approx. KRW 99.95 billion).

The British ‘Football Insider’ reported on the 16th (KST), “Tottenham have set their sights on Jimenez, whose transfer fee is said to be £60 million. Feyenoord striker Jimenez is expected to cost more than £60 million, with Tottenham, Fulham, Chelsea and Arsenal among the clubs chasing his signature.”

“Fulham are keen to sign Jimenez, but the player’s price tag and interest from other clubs make a move unlikely. Feyenoord will demand more than £60 million for Jimenez, and a move is more likely to happen in the summer than in January. Tottenham have yet to find a replacement for Harry Kane and are expected to enter the race for Jimenez at the end of the season.”

Tottenham lost a key striker this summer. Harry Kane joined Bayern Munich for a transfer fee of €95 million. With the transfer funds and extra budget, Spurs made some significant signings. We spent around €117 million on Brennan Johnson, James Maddison, Mickey van der Penn, Guglielmo Vicario, Alejo Velis, Ashley Phillips, Pedro Foro (complete), and Dejan Kulusebski (complete).

None of them were Kane replacements. They did bring in Bellerin for the same position, but he’s still only 20 years old. Since the start of the season, the club has moved Son Heung-min to the front line, a role that is now occupied by the Frenchman.

While it’s encouraging to see that he’s been playing well lately, scoring three goals in two games following groin surgery, he’s still in need of reinforcements. In this situation, according to Football Insider, Tottenham are eyeing Feyenoord’s Jimenez.

Jimenez is a Mexican striker who made his debut for Cruz Azul before moving to Feyenoord last summer. He is an excellent goal scorer. Last season, he scored 28 goals and provided three assists in 50 games between Cruz Azul and Feyenoord. This season, he hasn’t stopped scoring and has 20 goals and 4 assists in 20 games so far.

His form has had Premier League clubs salivating. Tottenham are among them, but the interest has been there before. Back in November, European transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano explained that “Tottenham have sent scouts to watch him several times and he is not a priority for Chelsea”.

The £60 million is the same total that Tottenham paid for his signature. Will Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy authorize another cool spending spree?
