Sport have claimed that Barcelona are now contemplating entering the race to sign Tottenham target Santiago Gimenez in January.
A couple of days ago, The Daily Mirror even asserted that the Lilywhites are fully convinced about the 22-year-old after scouting him during Feyenoord’s Champions League encounter against Lazio and that the Premier League side are willing to meet the Dutch club’s asking price.
Barca could enter the race for Santiago Gimenez
If Sport’s latest update is to be believed, Tottenham could now face competition from Barcelona for Gimenez’s signature.
The report states that Robert Lewandowski could receive offers from Saudi Arabia in January and while the Pole does not want to leave Camp Nou, the Catalan club are ‘attentive’ to market opportunities.
Should they sell the former Bayern Munich star, it is alleged that they could use the funds from the sale to sign Gimenez.
