Tottenham enter Marcos Leonardo chase

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly joined the race to sign 20-year-old Brazilian striker Marcos Leonardo from Santos.

According to a report from Fichajes, Tottenham are keeping tabs on 20-year-old Santos striker Marcos Leonardo. The youngster has also been linked with a plethora of well-known clubs in Europe.

The talented young striker is highly rated in South America, and it remains to be seen whether Spurs can negotiate a reasonable fee for him with Santos. The Brazilian under-23 international has been linked with a move to Europe in recent months, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

The striker has the potential to develop into a quality player for big clubs like Tottenham in the near future, and he could prove to be a solid, long-term investment. But they might face competition from other top clubs like Manchester United.

Spurs will need to add more quality and depth to their attacking department. They have not brought in a quality replacement for Harry Kane and must look to sign a reliable goalscorer in the coming season. Although Leonardo might not be ready to make an impact on the Tottenham first team yet, he could prove to be a superb future option for them.

The opportunity to join a club like Tottenham can be hard to turn out for the player, and the youngster will be excited about the prospect of playing for the North London club if there is a concrete proposal on the table.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou prefers a free-flowing attacking approach, and the 20-year-old striker could thrive in his system. In addition to that, the Australian has shown that he can nurture talented young players during his time at Celtic, and he could be the ideal manager to bring out the best in the Brazilian forward.

A number of other clubs are keen on the talented young striker as well. So, Tottenham must look to move quickly in order to beat the competition and secure his signature. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few months.
