Feyenoord Rotterdam striker Santiago Jimenez, who has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, is attracting interest from other clubs.
“Eintracht Frankfurt are very interested in Jimenez,” German Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg said on Wednesday (June 3). Eintracht Frankfurt want to sign two new strikers in the winter.”
Feyenoord are unbeaten in the Eredivisie this season with five wins and two draws in seven games (17 points). They are fourth in the standings, but only five points behind leaders PSV Eindhoven, who are on a seven-game winning streak. Feyenoord are in a good position to challenge for the top of the Eredivisie.
At the center of Feyenoord’s rise is Mexican international striker Jimenez. Born in 2001, he is a young striker at just 22 years old. Jimenez finished fourth in the Eredivisie last season with 15 goals in 32 games.
This season, Jimenez’s goal-scoring form has continued. He is currently the top scorer in the Eredivisie in 2023/24 with 10 goals in seven games. He even scored in six consecutive games, from the second round against Sparta Rotterdam to the seventh round against Go Ahead Eagles. In ‘The Klaasiker Derby’ against Ajax in Round 6, he scored a hat-trick with three goals and an assist to help his team to a 4-0 victory.
Jimenez’s goal-scoring prowess in the Eredivisie has attracted interest from a number of clubs. “Jimenez was watched by scouts from Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham over the weekend,” reported 90MIN in the UK. In addition to the English clubs, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Juventus, AC Milan, and Napoli are also said to have watched Jimenez, according to the outlet. 스포츠토토
Tottenham lost club icon Harry Kane to Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window after 19 years together. Since parting ways with Kane, Spurs have turned to Son Heung-min as their frontline striker. He’s done his job with six goals in seven games, but the Spurs offense could be even stronger with the addition of Jimenez.
