Harry Kane, the club record goalscorer and a standout forward, left, but his loss has hardly been felt thus far. Spurs have reimagined themselves as a more fluid offensive club, with new captain Son Heung-min flourishing in a more central role, rather than floundering without their former hero. With their most recent 2-1 victory on Friday night, Tottenham has now played ten games without a loss, winning eight of them to send a strong message to the other Premier League teams.
The club appears to be changing under the direction of new manager Ange Postecoglou, and things haven’t looked better in a while. Spurs have prospered without a conventional number nine like Kane, but there have been hints that Daniel Levy, the team’s chairman, and Johan Lange, the new transfer chief, could still sign a new striker next year.
Tottenham are interested in Brentford’s Ivan Toney, for instance, who looks set to become one of the hottest commodities in English football once he returns from his ban for alleged gambling breaches. Spurs are eyeing Feyenoord forward Santiago Gimenez as well, according to recent reports, with one agent even saying this week that Spurs are among the “closest” sides to getting him.
Romano, a very trustworthy transfer source, has now provided his own update on the situation. Although he affirms that the Spurs are keeping an eye on Gimenez, things don’t seem to be as progressed as earlier reports said. Speaking on his YouTube channel, the journalist affirms that Postecoglou finds him to be a particularly “interesting” player. Gimenez might depart for under £39 million, according to Romano.
