Tottenham Hotspur have picked out Feyenoord striker Santiago Gimenez as their top priority target for the No. 9 position in the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to Caught Offside, Tottenham Hotspur are already formulating plans for their summer recruitment drive, and they may well be in the market for a new striker this summer. Santiago Gimenez has thus emerged as the priority target for them.

The North London side have made rapid progress since Ange Postecoglou took charge last summer in what many deemed as something of a surprise appointment. Currently sat fifth, Postecoglou has won hearts with his football philosophy and calm demeanour during press conferences.

Ultimately though it is a results business, and if the Lilywhites can finish inside the top four this season, it will be deemed as an successful first season in charge. Spurs opted against signing a natural replacement for Kane in the summer after the Englishman completed his move to Bayern Munich for an initial fee of around £82 million late last summer.

They resisted the temptation in January too, and as we head into the summer, there is plenty of speculation around who Tottenham could target. Without Kane, Tottenham have not fared too badly as Postecoglou has filled the void by moving Son Heung-min into a more central role while also finding ways to bring out the best in Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski. Brennan Johnson and Timo Werner are also options for Postecoglou.

What would Santiago Gimenez bring to Spurs?

Despite Postecoglou’s current options, Tottenham are still likely to sign a new striker in the coming months and Gimenez – who has been on the radar of some big sides of late – is understood to be on their radar.

The 22-year-old has been in sensational form for Feyenoord this season, grabbing 24 goals and five assists in his 35 appearances for the Dutch outfit across all competitions. The Mexico international is setting himself up for a future move to the Premier League and has now emerged as Tottenham’s favourite option to replace Kane.

In total, he has netted 47 goals in just 80 games for Feyenoord and is a menace in the final third, being blessed with impressive pace and admirable finishing. The Mexican forward can add a bigger goal-scoring threat for Tottenham and improve their efficiency in the box as they prepare for the return of European football next season.
