In a recent report, Fichajes stated that Tottenham Hotspur are facing stiff competition for Feyenoord ace Santiago Gimenez. It has been revealed that Spurs will have to rival Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign the Mexican centre-forward.
Gimenez’s Decent Run Form At Feyenoord
The 22-year-old has enjoyed a good run of form in the Dutch Eredivisie this season after he produced a string of productive performances as the spearhead of their attack. Gimenez has found the back of the net on ten occasions and earned two assists in eight matches for his current employers during this campaign across various competitions.
The Mexican attacker has given a good account of himself by averaging 4.6 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Dutch Eredivisie. However, he needs to work on improving his link-up play in the final third as evidenced by his pass success rate of 72.9% in the Dutch first division (stats via whoscored).
Gimenez’s current contract at the Dutch club will expire in the summer of 2027. Hence, Spurs will have to launch a big offer if they want to win the race for his services next year.
Tottenham Hotspur Are Facing Stiff Competition For Gimenez: Is He Worth The Fight?
Gimenez can find some space for himself to get a few strikes in on-target. He has got the vision to create a few meaningful openings for his teammates in the opponent’s half.
The Mexican striker can be a decent finisher in front of the opposition goal when he is playing well on the pitch. However, it remains to be seen whether he has what it takes to cope with the physicality and high intensity of Premier League football.
Still, there is no denying that Gimenez would add more firepower to Tottenham boss Angelos Postecoglu’s attack. He might even help the North London club compete for a major trophy in the coming seasons.
At 22, the future looks quite promising for the Feyenoord forward as long as he continues to develop with each year. Hence, Gimenez will be well worth the fight, so Spurs should focus on getting a deal done for him when the transfer window commences once again at the start of next year.
