Tottenham Hotspur, who are heavily rumoured to be in the market for a striker in January, are being linked with a move for Feyenoord striker Luc Castaignos.
With the likes of Robbie Keane, Roman Pavlyuchenko and Peter Crouch all having been linked with transfers away from White Hart Lane, Harry Redknapp is reportedly interested in Feyenoord’s 18 year-old striker for a fee of around £4 million.
Tottenham will face stiff competition though if they are to land the highly rated Dutch-striker as also in the hunt are Inter Milan, Arsenal and Valencia.
Castaignos, who has previously been compared to French ace Thierry Henry, scored an impressive 22 goals in 31 games for the Netherlands U-17 and U-19 teams before he got his big break in the Feyenoord first team in 2009.
Since his league debut, Castaignos has netted 6 goals in 19 games for the Dutch Eredivise club. He has a strong, quick, direct style of play and has thus attracted a lot of attention from some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Castaignos’ agent, Arie Treffers, has confirmed that there has been firm interest in the young forward: “Arsenal and Tottenham. There are many interested, but only Inter have made a firm move.”
