The free scoring Paraguayan, who was on loan with Sporting Gijon last term, is understood to have reached an agreement with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino about moving to North London this summer.
Ahead of his side’s venture back into the Champions League, the former Southampton coach is on the lookout for high quality reinforcements for star man Harry Kane.
