On Wednesday, Santiago Gimenez became the top scorer in European leagues this season. His two goals for Feyenoord in the 3-1 win over Lazio in the Champions League added to a remarkable scoring output, with 15 goals in just 11 appearances.
Gimenez is in excellent form in the Dutch National Championship, and it will be difficult for the Rotterdam team to retain this striker in 2024. Morris Pagniello, who represents the Mexican international, told Tuttomercatoweb that he has been in talks with Atletico Madrid about a possible transfer.
However, Pagniello also revealed that Atletico’s city rivals Real Madrid are currently the strongest candidates to bring in Gimenez, along with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
“Now, the teams closest to him are Real Madrid and Tottenham.” – he said.
Sources say Feyenoord is likely to accept a price of 40-50 million euros for Gimenez. For its part, Real Madrid can certainly afford to pay this amount. But if Kylian Mbappe joins the Santigo de Bernabeu team next summer, Tottenham will be the team with the advantage in recruiting Gimenez.
