Better than Lamela? Star Jonathan Calleri linked with Tottenham scored this amazing Rabona

Tottenham Hotspur are linked with signing Jonathan Calleri.

Jonathan Calleri might just fit right in at Tottenham Hotspur.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported this week that Spurs are interested in the Boca Juniors sensation, rivalling Chelsea and Arsenal for his signature.

The striker has netted 21 goals in 2015, and was described by The Star as the 'next Gonzalo Higuain' earlier this year.

His deft footwork may make him more comparable to Erik Lamela.

Calleri has an eye for goal, but none of his strikes are better than the spectacular effort he scored for Boca against Quilmes back in July.

He managed to chip the goalkeeper with a 'Rabona' goal, a skill few players are capable of pulling off, let alone being confident enough to attempt it mid-game.

A player who has done so successfully is Tottenham's Erik Lamela, who scored a superb strike of his own last season against Asteras Tripoli.

The strike was voted 'goal of the 2014/15 Europa League', and may even have had an impact in helping convince Tottenham to stick with him after a tough start to his career at White Hart Lane.

Adding Calleri to the mix to play alongside Lamela and provide cover for Harry Kane is a mouthwatering prospect if Tottenham can pull it off.
