The Daily Mail almost gleefully links some of our best players with moves away from the club but today they have reversed that trend and suggested that Real Madrid frontman Gonzalo Higuain could be coming to Spurs in a deal worth around £16m.
Higuan has been at Real since 2007 after joining from River Plate and throughout his club career he has averaged over a goal every other game. Born in France, he attained Argentine nationality and so far the player has won thirteen caps for his country and has scored seven times.
Still only 23, Higuain is powerful in the air and quick on the ground and could be a perfect option for Spurs. However, while the fee is quoted by the press as being a ‘cut price’ £16m, his wages may still be a little bit off Tottenham’s radar and reports suggest that Arsenal and Manchester City are also interested in acquiring the player’s services.
The race for a new striker will be hotting up as the summer progresses but is Higuain the man that Spurs should seriously look at?
