Tottenham have ‘already met’ Gimenez’s agents

According to Mexican outlet Jovenes Futbolistas MX, Tottenham are ‘ready to make their move’ for Gimenez, amid uncertainly over the future of Kane.

The report states that Spurs are ‘planning to offer’ €40m (£34.6m) for the player this summer and have ‘already met’ with his agents.

Gimenez is under contract at Feyenoord until 2026. Therefore, the Dutch club are under no pressure to sell, so it will take a big offer to secure his services.

Feyenoord will reportedly demand at least  €50m (£43.3m) for their star striker. Spurs are reportedly ‘aware of this,’ but are keen to open negotiations slightly lower to test the water.

With that in mind, it will be interesting to see if Tottenham do indeed make a concrete offer for Gimenez in the near future.

Ange Postecoglou is in for a busy few weeks as he looks to prepare his squad for the coming season. Bolstering his defence is his priority and Tottenham have been linked with several centre-backs recently.
