Tottenham Hotspur can extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table to five points when they face Crystal Palace on Friday evening. 

Ange Postecoglou has enjoyed a fine start to his tenure in North London, picking up 23 points from nine matches in the Premier League – a record for a manager’s first nine games in the competition.

On Friday they make the trip across the capital to face an Eagles side that were beaten 4-0 by Newcastle United last weekend.

In the meantime, it appears that one of Spurs’ targets has had his price tag set.

As per 90min, Feyenoord will demand an Eredivisie record fee for striker Santiago Gimenez.

That record is currently held by winger Antony, who cost Manchester United around £87 million when they signed him from Ajax last summer.

Gimenez, 22, has been in fine form for the Dutch side in recent months, scoring 15 goals in 11 games across all competitions so far this term.


Gimenez has emerged as a target for Tottenham Hotspur

His goals have helped Feyenoord start the new season strongly, but his performances haven’t gone unnoticed and the report claims that Spanish giants Real Madrid are interested in the player, as well as Spurs.

The forward joined his current club from Mexican side Cruz Azul last summer, for a fee in the region of £4 million.

He has since netted an impressive 38 goals in 56 games across all competitions, and the report claims that every major club in the Premier League has already scouted the Mexican so far this term, with both Chelsea and Arsenal having watched him in recent weeks.

When joining Feyenoord last year, Gimenez signed a long-term contract that is set to run until the summer of 2027.
