Reports arising from the Metro newspaper suggest that Spurs are preparing a summer bid for Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas. The 25 year old has been with the La Liga side for his entire career but it’s thought that Spurs and Chelsea are chasing the player with a view to triggering his £8.3 million buy out clause.
The story goes on to suggest that Spurs will offer Iago Falque as part of the deal. Our 23 year old midfielder is currently on loan At Almeria where he has made just three full appearances since leaving in January.
Many have high hopes for Falque but if he is to leave the club, is Aspas the right man to bring in? The forward has a ratio equating to around one goal in three – a record that has resulted in no recognition at International level.
It looks almost inevitable that Spurs will be in for a striker in the summer but many will hope that Iago Aspas isn’t the one.
