David Ornstein reveals what he knows about the £43 million Tottenham target, saying, “I was on a call about him today.”



Since Harry Kane left, Tottenham has been connected to a number of strikers; Santiago Gimenez is one player whose name keeps coming up.


Over the past 18 months or so, the Feyenoord striker has been making waves in the Netherlands, and Spurs have developed a fondness for the £43 million player.


However, according to David Ornstein, appearing on the BBC Transfer Gossip Daily Podcast, Feyenoord actually don’t want to sell the Mexican this month.


Ornstein does, in fact, report that he spoke with someone recently regarding Gimenez, and that person made it quite evident to him that Feyenoord is not interested in selling the player.

Feyenoord is unwilling to sell. Gimenez Ornstein divulged his knowledge of the striker.


“From what I’ve seen of him, I really like him, but there’s that Dutch caution.” I was on a call about him today, and without realizing we were going to talk about this, it became evident to me how much Feyenoord needed to hold onto him for the rest of the season. They’re in Europe, and if they can qualify for the Champions League, that would be worth more than a sale price. If the price goes up into the 40s or higher, though, that situation may change, and I don’t think they’re currently entertaining any interest,” Ornstein said.


A summertime one

Although Feyenoord doesn’t want to let Gimenez go this month, by the time summer arrives, they might not be able to block this transfer.


Gimenez has, in fact, earned the right to play at the highest level, and a summer transfer seems imminent.


By the time summer arrives, Tottenham might be in that race. After all, rumors have it that Spurs will attempt to recruit a player to replace Harry Kane at the end of the current campaign.


Without a doubt, this is a situation to closely monitor.
