Tottenham Hotspur is trying to reinforce the central striker, but it is said that the relationship with the player’s club is not smooth and difficult.랭크카지노
“The Spurs Web,” a media outlet specializing in Tottenham’s club, said on the 18th (Korea time), “Pabrigo Romano may fail to recruit a striker set by Tottenham.” The striker is Santiago Jimenez, a Mexican young gun who plays for Eredivisie Feyenoord in the Netherlands this season. Jimenez has shown a strong scoring sense last season and this season, so many European clubs are courting him.
Tottenham is no exception. Jimenez, who scored 23 goals in 44 games while leading Feyenoord to the league title in the 2022/23 season, has scored 18 goals in 16 games in the league alone this season. According to “Footmob,” a platform specializing in soccer statistics, he has the top 2% scoring ability compared to other strikers in the same league when it comes to scoring ability alone.
Tottenham and coach Anji Postecoglou, who had to solve the central striker position with only the resources they had after sending out their team’s flagship striker Harry Kane last summer, are finally chasing Jimenez with their eyes lit up to recruit new resources.
However, Romano, a transfer market expert, said Tottenham might not be able to touch Jimenez. Romano appeared on a football podcast “Divliff” on the 13th and said, “The relationship between Tottenham and Feyenoord is not very good. It’s not a big problem, but there is a problem to be solved. This is also something to consider (in Jimenez’s transfer).”
This problem appears to have arisen when pushing for the signing of the manager Arne Slot, who is serving as Feyenoord’s manager. Last summer, Tottenham negotiated with Slot before appointing Postecoglou. Slot was chosen to replace Antonio Conte, their former manager. However, at the end of the negotiations, the agreement between Slot and Tottenham was overturned, and in the end, Tottenham appointed Postecoglou.
Global sports media “The Athletic” reported that “It is highly likely that Slot used negotiations with Tottenham to get a better contract at Feyenoord” after the negotiations between Slot and Tottenham broke down in May. For Tottenham, it is “amazing” to Slot.
In this situation, Tottenham wants Feyenoord’s striker, but it is unlikely that the other team will match the transfer fee they want or sit at the negotiating table in a flexible manner. Romano said, “Fyeno is expected to ask for 45 million euros (about 64 billion won) instead of sending Jimenez out in January. However, it is unclear whether he will be able to succeed in recruiting with this amount.”
Jimenez’s contract with Feyenoord expires in the summer of 2027, three and a half years later. In other words, Tottenham has to pay a transfer fee to recruit Jimenez. “I don’t think Tottenham will jump into recruiting Jimenez in January,” The Spurs Webb said. “However, if they are worried about losing to other teams after waiting for six months, they may make a shocking transfer (like Panic Buy).”
