Antonio Sanabria: Linked with move to Tottenham.

The agent of Roma forward Antonio Sanabria claims there has been “some contact” with Tottenham Hotspur.

Reports earlier this week claimed Spurs had agreed terms for the 20-year-old Paraguay international, who scored 11 La Liga goals on loan at Sporting Gijon last season.

And although that report may be too far down the line, the £11.5million-rated forward is definitely on the radar of Mauricio Pochettino, who could view Sanabria as a better value signing than £30million pair Alexandre Lacazette and Michy Batshuayi.

Raul Verdu told Tuttomercatoweb: “I’m speaking generally. There has been some contact, but we’ll have to evaluate with Roma.

“Right now the lad belongs to the Giallorossi and I’ll speak with [sporting director Walter] Sabatini to decide how to move.

“At the moment there’s nothing concrete on Sanabria’s future, we’ll see if there’s news next week.”

Tottenham have already moved to sign Victor Wanyama from Southampton and now look set to pursue a deal for Sanabria.

The player is allegedly valued at £11.5m – the same price Spurs paid for Wanyama – and a deal appears to be getting closer after Sanabria’s agent confirmed there had been initial talks with the north London outfit.
