Tottenham are reportedly eyeing a summer move for Deportivo Maldonado striker Jonathan Calleri, according to the Sunday People via the Sunday Mirror.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino believes the 22-year-old could be one of South America’s next big stars, and wants to bring his fellow Argentine compatriot to White Hart Lane at the end of the season.
With little competition or alternatives to Harry Kane in the striking position, Pochettino’s priority in the summer is to bring in some more attacking players, especially if the club qualifies for the Champions League, which is looking likely as they currently sit second in the Premier League standings.
Any move for Calleri, who used to play for Boca Juniors and is currently on loan at Brazilian giants Sao Paulo, could be complicated though, as the north London outfit would have to buy the attacker’s registration, which is currently owned by an investment group.
However, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy could be persuaded that this would be a better value for money move than someone like Alexandre Lacazette, who could cost more than £20 million.
