Tottenham Hotspur will be desperate to bounce back after suffering defeat at the hands of Watford prior to the international break.
The Lilywhites established themselves as early-season title contenders, despite not spending a single penny during the summer transfer window. Although, it looks as if one of Tottenham’s targets is involved in talks, as according to Calciomercato, Giovanni Simeone is involved in serious contract talks with Fiorentina.
It’s believed that Fiorentina are actively engaged in serious contract talks with Giovanni Simeone.
However, Simeone and his representatives are making it a point that he be allowed to leave in the future if a big club swoop for him.
It’s unclear as to whether Tottenham would qualify, but they certainly have the financial resources to make Simeone and his Serie A club a tempting offer at some point in the future.
Indeed, it’s understood that Spurs made a move for the forward during the summer, but the fee they offered wasn’t enough to lure him to North London.
The young striker is one of the most promising forwards in world football and could definitely provide sufficient back-up for Harry Kane at the pinnacle of the attack.
However, with Fiorentina reportedly in serious contract talks with their main man, it remains to be seen as to how hard it will be for Spurs to lure him to North London.
