Ahead of the January transfer window, the club have been linked with RB Salzburg and Croatia U21 striker Roko Simic as Nuno Espirito Santo looks to strengthen his squad.
According to Jeunes Footeaux , Tottenham and Premier League rival West Ham are keeping tabs on U21 Croatian striker Roko Simic from Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg, currently on loan at Austrian Football Second League club FC Liefering from RB Salzburg.
The 18-year-old has scored seven goals in seven league starts already this season, with Liefering currently second in Erste Liga after 11 games and is the son of former Inter Milan and AC Milan defender Dario Simic.
The links linking the north London club to the Croatia U-21 international has subsequently seen Spurs fans take to Twitter.
What did Spurs make of latest transfer update?
“PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. He’s incredible. Baller”
“He’s a baller”
“If we’re going for Salzburg strikers can’t we go for Adayemi”
“Very young and is doing good in Liefering but he should make an impact in RB before he makes the next step”
“Never seen him before but the next davor suker if you ask me”
“He may well be amazing, but he’s never played for Salzburg’s first team”
According to the report, RB Leipzig, Real Madrid and AS Monaco are all also keen on the centre-forward, while scouts have been ‘comparing him to Erling Haaland’ following a string of excellent displays whilst out on loan in Austria.
