Spurs keen on prolific £15.2m South American international

Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in the signing of River Plate forward Lucas Alario, according to Spanish outlet Marca

While Mauricio Pochettino bolstered his frontline with the signing of Vincent Janssen over the summer, only the Dutchman and Harry Kane remain as natural options in that berth.

With that in mind, the North London outfit are said to be keen on the 23-year-old, despite the fact he recently signed in a new deal in Buenos Aries.

They are understood to be willing to pay his reported £15.2m release clause as Pochettino looks to round out his squad even further.

Alario notched a stunning 19 goals in 39 games for Los Millonarios last term, reportedly attracting the glances from top brass at White Hart Lane.

He has started the campaign well this time around too, hitting two goals in three games.

Such is the nature of his form, the Argentina has received a call-up to the senior national side in recent months.
