The English side Tottenham Hotspur have a huge task ahead of them. The side finished 3rd in the Premier League table last season, and therefore, they will be contesting in the Champions League. The majority of the players (Tottenham players) has either played in the EUROS or the Copa America with their respective countries and are currently out on their vacations, so this will be a good time for the Argentine gaffer Mouricio Pochettino to look out for the transfers.

With a Champions League card on the side, Pochettino will have to strengthen the squad to avoid excessive fatigue. The London has been linked with a number of players, but it is understood that the priority position for the gaffer would be the attacking line. Tottenham Hotspur have Harry Kane, and besides him, they have no concrete option.

It is reported that the side is desperately chasing the French striker Alexandre Lacazette and Dutch star Vincent Janssen. There is no doubt that the addition of these two players would optimize the team, but a new name has been popped out from nowhere as it is reported that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to cash in for the 20-year-old Paraguayan striker Antonio Sanabria.

Who is Antonio Sanabria?


Antonio Sanabria started his career in Futsal, but later moved to football. At the age of 14, he moved to the world renowned academy of football, La Masia. At the age of 17, was promoted to FC Barcelona B and went on to make 10 appearances for the side, scoring thrice.

In November 2013, he rejected to sign a new contract with the Spanish club and decided to join the Serie A side Sassuolo. After making just 2 appearances for Sassuolo, he finally joined AS Roma on a reported fee of €4.9million.

In the beginning of the 2015-16 season, he was sent back to Spain on loan with Sporting de Gijón. The striker finally found a stable footing as a player and made 30 appearances for the side and scored 11 goals. Now, is reported that Tottenham Hotspur might make a move for the player.

Style Of Play-

The 20-year-old centre forward is surely a star in the making. Being a south American blood, he has got those tricky legs and has a natural eye for goal. Besides that, he is known for his clever off the ball movements which is a rare sight in today’s youth.

Despite being a centre forward, he loves to combine with his teammates and loves to build up the play. Sanabria is quality when it comes to press the opponents. As everyone is familiar with Tottenham’s style, we are pretty sure that he would love to sign for the team, whose attacks usually starts after a high intensity pressing.

Being 5ft 11, his aerial ability is perfect and the Paraguayan never gets afraid to engage himself in the aerial battles. He is a pure threat when left alone around the danger area as he is capable of shooting the ball with perfection.

Besides all these attributes, the diamond is still a rough one, but we are sure that working under Pochettino will allow him to get a regular game time and that will help him to improve his skills.
