Tottenham are close to completing an £11.5million deal with Roma for young striker Antonio Sanabria.
The Paraguay international has been on Spurs’ radar since he was a teenager at Barcelona’s La Masia academy and now the club are ready to swoop for the 20-year-old.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma have accepted a deal of around £11.5m for Sanabria and the fee has the potential to rise to £15m based on appearances.
Sanabria spent last season on loan at Sporting Gijon and caught Mauricio Pochettino’s attention by scoring 11 goals for the La Liga club.
Spurs regularly scouted the forward during his time in Spain and now Pochettino is close to getting his man, who will be used as back-up to Harry Kane next season.
