Tottenham have been in search of a cover striker for Harry Kane and manager Mauricio Pochettino must lure one this summer.
The North Londoners are linked with numerous quality strikers and now a new name is in the lime light in the form of Paraguayan forward Antonio Sanabria.
According to Spanish source Mundo Deportivo, Spurs have shown special interest in hiring the services of the 20-year-old striker and are close to sealing his signing.
Last season, the South American center forward played for Sporting Gijon (on loan from Serie A club Roma) and impressed big time. In 27 league starts, Sanabria scored 11 goals for the Spanish side.
Describing Antonio, Pete Jenson stated (Daily Mail):
“He is not the biggest at 5 ft 10 but he is strong enough to lead the line in 4-2-3-1 and he knows where the goal is.”
Sanabria’s top performances earned him a place in the national side for the Copa America Centenario, however, Paraguay were eliminated from the competition without even winning a single game. He is yet to open his account for Paraguay having featured 8 times for the senior side.
As per the provided Mundo Deportivo link, Sanabria rejected Arsenal before joining Barca B. In your opinion, should Tottenham sign Antonio Sanabria? (Picture: Getty)
