Tottenham could snap up Sanabria, months after West Ham chose Perez instead

Tottenham are on the prowl for a striker and it could lead to a forward who was targeted by their London rivals, West Ham, in the form of Real Betis forward Antonio Sanabria.

The Sun say that Tottenham may make a January move to ease their striker crisis, coming only months after MARCA reported that West Ham were interested in signing the Paraguayan.

The 22-year-old has scored five goals this season after West Ham’s interest came to nothing, with the Hammers instead choosing to loan Lucas Perez from Arsenal.

The 22-year-old may cost Mauricio Pochettino’s side £26 million (€30 million) to pay his full release clause, though the report from the summer suggested that West Ham were only willing to pay £20 million.

 

A former Barcelona youth product who has also spent time at AS Roma, Sanabria is highly rated but is yet to truly fulfil his potential and a move to Tottenham may be just what he needs, given that he would have to prove to be a better option than Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen in Harry Kane’s absence.

Given that West Ham chose Perez in his place, who has hardly been a hit at the London Stadium, Spurs fans may not be feeling optimistic about this deal, in spite of the promise shown by Sanabria.
