Tottenham Hotspur are chasing a South American star in a January move that could help their push for the top four.
The Lilywhites have fallen off the pace in recent months after being the last team in the Premier League to lose a match – but a lot of that can be attributed to absences. Defenders Micky van de Ven and Cristian Romero, for example, were mainstays at the start of the season but have had to drop out of the side; the former through injury and the latter to suspensions.
With Tottenham wanting to strengthen where they can in the winter transfer window, however, talks have already begun on one star who can add depth to the side.
Tuttosport reports that Uruguayan centre-back Sebastien Caceres has held talks with the north Londoners over a move to the club.
Caceres is extremely highly rated and well-liked by his national manager, no less than Marcelo Bielsa. There is hope that a deal could be brokered for cheap, too, with more expensive stars like Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo being linked, too.
With the 24-year-old’s contract ending in December 2024, his employers, Club America, are apparently keen to make a deal happen.
Caceres is worth €3.5 million, according to Transfermarkt.
