Tottenham Hotspur might face competition from Barcelona in their pursuit of Santiago Gimenez. Since, the Catalan club is reportedly monitoring the striker. Sport reports that the Mexico international may not command as high a transfer fee. Since, some of the other world-class strikers currently in the market.

Feyenoord is likely aware that retaining Santiago Gimenez beyond this season could be extremely challenging. The striker has enjoyed a fast start to the campaign. Thus, netting 13 goals in 10 Eredivisie matches for the defending champions.

Interest in the 22-year-old striker is growing, with reports from 90min suggesting that both Arsenal and Tottenham have expressed interest in the young player.

Sport has reported that Barcelona is now considering Santiago Gimenez as well. While Barca is to welcome Vitor Roque, the report also suggests that Robert Lewandowski may receive offers from Saudi Arabia. This could prompt Deco and Xavi to consider signing a new striker, and Gimenez appears to be on their radar.

Can Barcelona pull off the signing of Santiago Gimenez?

According to Sport, Santiago Gimenez expects to be more affordable than some of the other strikers in the market. This aligns with a report from La Repubblica earlier this month, which indicated that Feyenoord is seeking a transfer fee of £43 million for the forward.

While the report from 90min indicated that Feyenoord might be seeking a record fee for Santiago Gimenez, it’s unlikely he will make a mid-season move. His outstanding current form may lead to an increase in his value, especially if it continues to be a sign of his future potential. The Eredivisie record transfer fee is currently at £87 million, paid for Antony.

Santiago Gimenez is establishing himself as a “fantastic” talent. Hence, securing his signature would be a significant coup for any club. The reported interest from Barcelona underscores his potential as a top-class striker. Tottenham could greatly benefit from such a signing if they can come to terms on a deal.
