Tottenham Hotspur are ready to sign a Mexican bomber.
Tottenham are preparing to make a move for Santiago Jimenez, according to the Daily Mail.
Tottenham parted ways with Harry Kane ahead of the start of the season. The club has been scrambling to find a replacement, but to no avail.
Spurs have utilized the underwhelming £90m striker, but again, he hasn’t sparkled.
Tottenham’s problems have been solved by Son Heung-min. He has been in sensational form as a frontline striker this season.
Son Heung-min has been leading Tottenham’s offense this season, scoring eight goals in the Premier League (PL). His performance as a frontline striker has led to comparisons to his idol Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo was a flanker, but after making the switch to striker, he’s stuck with it.
“He has the ability to finish with both feet,” said Sky Sports in the UK. He is following a similar path to Ronaldo, who switched from a flanker to a frontline striker.”
“In Son, Tottenham have a dedicated player who scores goals and creates space for his teammates. The Kane move is paying off. He’s doing more in front of goal. He used to have less than 10% touches, but this season he’s close to 20%.”
“All six of Son Heung-min’s goals under Postecoglou have come from outside the box. It’s a useful example of a positional change.”
Postecoglou echoed the sentiment, saying, “Son is similar to Ronaldo. He started as a winger,” he said.
“He’s a really good goalie. I always feel that his movement is excellent. It’s a bit more complicated to play up front than on the flanks, but he’s clever enough to do it.”
While Son is leading Tottenham’s attack, he can’t do it alone.
In particular, Son will be leaving Spurs for the Asian Cup next January. In this situation, adding more strikers is not an option, but a necessity.
Spurs are looking to add to their offense, and Jimenez is the perfect fit.
Jimenez is a Mexican forward who plays for Feyenoord in the Netherlands. He utilizes his quick penetration, distinctive left-footed shot, and off-the-ball ability to score goals. 캡틴토토
Jimenez’s performance this season has been nothing short of insane. With 13 goals and three assists in 12 league appearances, he’s been a force to be reckoned with.
He’s also been a bomber in Europe, scoring two goals in two Champions League games.
In addition to Tottenham, Real Madrid, Arsenal, and Chelsea are also interested in Jimenez.
