Tottenham should reconsider November 2018 target Borja Iglesias after he took his season tally to 15 goals

Borja Iglesias was a target for Tottenham in November 2018.

Tottenham Hotspur will surely be looking for a new striker this summer with Fernando Llorente’s contract coming to an end.

The veteran Spaniard has provided Tottenham with a back-up option to Harry Kane but Mauricio Pochettino could look for a younger option.

According to Spanish media outlet El Gol Digital back in November 2018, Espanyol forward Borja Iglesias was a target for Spurs.

And after he took his tally to 15 goals for the season, perhaps it is time for Tottenham to reconsider this move and bring him in for next season.

This is Iglesias’ debut season for Espanyol, having netted 22 times in 39 Segunda Division games for Real Zaragoza last season.

 

The Spanish striker is proving his worth in the top flight of Spanish football and could be an ideal back-up choice to Kane.

Having Iglesias as an alternative option would equip Pochettino with a strikeforce ready to compete for the title in the 2019/20 season.

Iglesias reportedly has a €28m (just under £24m) release clause in his contract (El Gol Digital) which makes him a potential bargain.

At this price, Iglesias is worth a risk to upgrade on Llorente and provide some competition for Kane up front at Tottenham.
