According to The Independent, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Real Betis striker Antonio Sanabria this month.

Spurs have been dealt a major blow in attack, as star striker Harry Kane picked up ankle ligament damage against Manchester United last weekend.

Kane will be out for two months with his injury, and with Son Heung-min at the Asian Cup with South Korea, Mauricio Pochettino doesn't have many options.

 

Now, The Independent report that Tottenham are actually hoping to sign a player that may be familiar to Spurs fans; Real Betis ace Sanabria.

The Paraguayan front man was tipped for stardom at Barcelona but lost his way at Roma, and has notched just five goals for the La Liga side this season.

At just 22, Sanabria still has bags of potential, and is seemingly being eyed as the man to come in and solve Tottenham's striking problem this month.

Intriguingly, Spurs have tried for Sanabria before. In 2016, Spurs wanted to land Sanabria from Roma, but ex-Tottenham midfielder Gus Poyet convinced him to join Betis instead, as reported by SPORT.

Spurs will hope it's second time lucky, and a move to a Champions League club may be hugely appealing for Sanabria this time around.
