The name of Abel Hernandez has been mentioned in connection with a transfer to Spurs in the past, but it hadn’t appeared for some months, and when you look at the Uruguayan’s overall scoring record, maybe that was a good thing.
There is a new story emerging this week however, claiming that a bid from Spurs in the region of around £9m was tabled in the summer and that the club may return once more for the 21 year old Palermo striker in January. It’s thought however that Real Madrid, Roma, Arsenal and Chelsea may also be interested.
When you look at his strike ratio, it’s a little difficult to see why there would be so much interest and to date, Hernandez has netted 29 times in 100 senior games at club level in addition to his three goals in eight matches for the Uruguayan national side.
At 21, he has got plenty of time to develop of course but ultimately Abel Hernandez may not be the prolific striker that Spurs need.
