Journalist Luke Hatfield reckons that Nuno Espirito could look to Raul Jimenez should Tottenham lose Harry Kane.
Should Tottenham make Laporte a priority?
Meanwhile, Jimenez hasn’t featured since suffering a sickening head injury at Arsenal in November.
But the Mexican striker has a proven record in the Premier League since joining Wolves back in 2018 – scoring 34 goals, whilst chipping in 14 assists in 86 appearances.
Prior to his injury, Jimenez was one of the most reliable strikers in the topflight, flourishing in Santo’s counter-attacking Wolves side in recent seasons.
However, by the time the new campaign gets underway, it’ll be almost nine months since the 30-year-old played competitively, and whilst him and Santo have an excellent relationship, it might be a slight risk on Tottenham’s behalf.
But when speaking to This is Futbol, Hatfield failed to rule it out:
“I think if Harry Kane were to go, I think a player like Raul Jimenez would be of interest to Nuno, he’s done a job in the Premier League.
“He’s probably one of the Premier League’s best strikers when fit and firing. If Harry Kane were to go, maybe they will consider him.”
