The 22-year-old is one of the most exciting young talents South American football has to offer, notching up twelve goals in 24 league appearances since signing for Sao Paulo in January.
He’d previously amassed 16 strikes in 41 outings for Boca Juniors, until being purchased by an investment firm at the turn of the year.
Tottenham have been linked with the Argentine frequently in recent months and Yahoo Brazil now report that the north London club have reached a verbal agreement to sign him during the summer transfer window.
Their source is the player’s father, Guillermo Calleri, who has reportedly informed Sao Paulo of Spurs’ offer – although he failed to confirm how much it’s worth.
It’s assumed Calleri is being acquired as back up to first-choice striker Harry Kane, who started every Premier League fixture for the Lilywhites this season – an enormous physical burden for a 22-year-old.
