Tottenham have reportedly reignited their interest in former Barcelona forward Sandro Ramirez, who is currently plying his trade at Malaga
Daily Mirror have reported that, as per the claims of Neil Moxey, Tottenham have reignited their interest in former Barcelona forward Sandro Ramirez. The 21-year-old has been playing well at his new club, La Liga club Malaga, and Spurs are now considering a January move for the player.
Sandro Ramirez came up through the ranks at Las Palmas before making the move to Barcelona. The forward managed to break through into the first-team setup at Nou Camp, making 17 appearances with a return of 2 goals in two seasons.
However, the player entered into the final stages of his contract and despite interest from many clubs, the 21-year-old chose to stay in La Liga and joined Malaga on a free transfer.
The player has had a more than decent debut season for Malaga up until now, with a return of 5 goals and 1 assist in 12 appearances.
Tottenham were rumoured to be one of the interested parties in January this year and had extensive talks for a move over the summer. Spurs instead, chose to sign Vincent Janssen, who has failed to sparkle since making the move to White Hart Lane.
And now, as per recent reports, Mauricio Pochettino is back in for the in-form 21-year-old with an aim to bolster the attack. Tottenham already have a host of young impressive talent in their roster and Ramirez could be the latest addition to an already talented squad.
There are no other suitors for Ramirez thus far and Tottenham would not have much trouble in shelving out the cash in order to land the forward, who is rated by Malaga at around £15m as per the report. However, it would be interesting to see if Malaga would choose to keep a hold of Ramirez or sell the player in return for money, which can then be spent to bring in other players.
One thing is certain, Vincent Janssen has little time to prove himself at his new club before the manager decides to add another attacker, something which would only add more competition for the places up-front.
