Arsenal are reportedly poised to secure the services of 22-year-old striker, Santiago Gimenez, who has garnered attention for his impressive goal-scoring record. Gimenez has emerged as one of Europe’s finest young forwards in the last 18 months, and is said to be available for a bargain fee before the January transfer window.
Having notched 28 goals in 50 appearances last season, Gimenez has already tallied an impressive 15 goals in just 11 outings across various competitions this term. His prowess has attracted interest from several European clubs, with Arsenal and Tottenham among those keenly eyeing his signature.
While Tottenham boasts one of the Premier League’s top finishers, Gimenez’s potential arrival could further bolster their attacking prowess. Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and Feyenoord have also shown interest, with the Eredivisie club recognizing the player’s value, though they acknowledge the possibility of selling at the right price.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano suggests that a fee around €45 million could facilitate a deal for Gimenez. Romano clarified that Gimenez manages his affairs solely through his father, dispelling rumours about other intermediaries or agents involved.
Romano told Caught Offside: “Last season he decided to stay at Feyenoord and sign a new deal, and now he’s performing at a top level again with Arne Slot as manager, but what I wanted to clarify guys is that many of you have been asking me about Giménez to Tottenham or Real Madrid because of the words apparently said by someone close to the player in an interview.
“What I can tell you after speaking to direct sources is Santiago Gimenez has no agent or intermediary, there is no one taking care of his business other than his father – it’s important to verify that.
“From what I’m hearing, something around €45m could be the right fee to get a deal done, so let’s see if that’s in the January window or in the summer.
Despite ongoing interest from multiple clubs, decisions about his future are expected to unfold in the coming months, with no official statements from the player’s family regarding any specific move.
Romano added: “Tottenham scouts have been following the player since last year and surely he’s interesting for them – but also for many other clubs around Europe. This is why decisions will be made in the next month but, at the moment, no statement from the player’s father on this.”
