Tottenham Hotspur have allegedly agreed personal terms with the Paraguayan.
The 20-year-old AS Roma forward has been linked with a move to Spurs for some time, but it is now being claimed that the North London club have concluded their talks with the player and that he is happy with their offer.
That does not mean a deal is done, with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy now required to negotiate directly with Roma regarding a purchase price, with a transfer fee of around £11.5million being mooted.
However, while there is still work to be done it seems Tottenham are closing in on a young player with plenty of potential and innate ability.
Sanabria spent last season on loan at Spanish side Sporting Gijon where he scored 11 goals in 30 matches, and while that is not exactly form to set the pulses racing he is still young and could develop into a very fine player under the tutelage of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Tottenham look set to strengthen in key areas this summer and with the right additions they will be hoping to again challenge for the Premier League title that eluded them in the final few weeks of the last campaign.
