Tottenham Hotspur have been encouraged to make an offer for former Birmingham City striker Christian Benitez.
The Ecuador international is now playing his football for Mexican outfit Club America, where he has finished on top of the league’s goalscoring charts for the previous three seasons.
Benitez, 27 is valued at £9million by Club America and their president Ricardo Pelaez has insisted that they would not stand in his way of a return to Europe.
It is worth noting that he only scored three goals in 30 appearances for Birmingham in thr 2009-2010 season.
Club America president Ricardo Pelaez, is quoted as saying in The Sun: “There could be a good offer for Christian from Tottenham.
“I’ve spoken with him and he wants to return to Europe. We won’t clip his wings if we get an offer that suits us.
“Of course there are bids for him, he has been the league’s top scorer three times after all.
“He is a great guy and a magnificent player. He is under contract but we’ll look to see what is the best option.”
