Tottenham Hotspur officials have been sent to San Lorenzo recently as the club and by extension director Fabio Paratici keep tabs on starlet Agustin Giay.
The Lowdown: Spurs preparing…
Spurs are fully preparing for life both under manager Antonio Conte and potentially even after the Italian departs by refreshing their squad with young and exciting talent.
Who should Spurs sign before the window shuts?
A world class centre-back
The north Londoners have sealed a plethora of senior signings for Conte’s first full Premier League season in charge, brining in the likes Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Clement Lenglet.
However, they also haven’t abandoned their philosophy of bringing in young players with vast potential – as backed by their decision to bring in both Djed Spence from Middlesbrough and Destiny Udogie from Udinese.
The latter two, given their young ages and inexperience at the very top level, could be seen as signings for the future.
According to the latest out of South America, though, Paratici is seemingly keeping his eye on further talent.
The Latest: Tottenham officials sent to watch Giay…
Indeed, as per radio broadcaster El Método San Lorenzo, Spurs are keeping tabs on San Lorenzo starlet Giay alongside Man City.
It is believed that officials from both the City Group and Lilywhites travelled to Argentina earlier this week, running the rule over Lorenzo’s exciting 18-year-old.
Emissaries were apparently in attendance to watch Giay as San Lorenzo beat Platense 2-0 on Tuesday.
The Verdict: One to watch?
The teenager, already captaining Argentina’s Under-20s side, is starting to amass quite a reputation across the Atlantic.
Journalist Gaspar Valderrama, for example, has waxed lyrical over the winger – calling him an ‘infallible’ member of San Lorenzo’s squad and ‘tractor’ on the flank (Twitter).
If Spurs take their interest further, this could well be one to watch.
