According to an exclusive report from Tutto Mercato Web, there could soon be an offer from Tottenham Hotspur for Deportivo Maldonado striker Jonathan Calleri.

The 22-year-old is currently on loan at Sao Paulo where he has scored an impressive eight goals in just 11 appearances.

That form has reportedly attracted Tottenham’s attention and the TMW story claims there is strong pressure from Spurs to get a deal done sooner rather than later.

The report goes on to claim that Italian side Fiorentina are also interested in signing the exciting young Argentine but that his future is likely to see either a stay at his current loan club or a switch to Tottenham.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino

Calleri came through the ranks at All Boys before hitting the headlines with a superb scoring run for Boca Juniors, finding the net 21 times in 53 matches to date.

There is little doubt he would be a hit at White Hart Lane if Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino pulls off the deal. But given the sheer number of strikers linked with the club in recent times it remains to be seen whose signature they will ultimately secure.
