According to a report from the Evening Standard, Tottenham have been ‘offered‘ a chance to sign Almeria striker Darwin Nunez as the club reportedly set their sights on a backup striker to Harry Kane – and chairman Daniel Levy could have to pay just £14m to make it happen.
Nunez, who bagged an impressive 16 goals in the Spanish second division last season (Transfermarkt), has also been linked with other Premier League clubs chasing a forward, including Brighton and Southampton.
Having turned heads with his prolific return on the continent for Almeria over 2019/20, prompting comparisons with Edinson Cavani, clubs could be eyeing bargain swoops like Nunez to cope with financial losses brought upon by the global pandemic.
Which striker would you like at Spurs?
Spurs fall into this category, having borrowed £175m from the Bank of England in recent months, and Nunez could represent a goalscoring option on the cheap who has bags of potential.
Reaching his first double figures campaign at the tender age of 21, Tottenham could do far worse than Nunez, and Evening Standard journalist Dan Kilpatrick has revealed that the Lilywhites have been ‘offered’ the Uruguayan as a striking option ahead of the new Premier League season.
This comes after a report that chairman Levy is struggling to progress with further deals due to Serge Aurier’s continued presence at the club, with Spurs allegedly wanting to sell him off before concluding any more transfers. So far, AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen have come knocking, but Levy reportedly won’t accept any bid under £23m – the same figure paid to bring him to north London back in 2017.
Hopefully Tottenham can come to an agreement with Aurier in order to bring in a talented prospect like Nunez.
