Tottenham fans are in sheer disbelief about the latest transfer rumour, as reports suggest they could make a shock swoop for Chelsea target Gonzalo Higuain.
According to Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera, Mauricio Pochettino is considering a shock move for Higuain, who has been heavily linked with Chelsea.
The 30 year-old has an incredible goalscoring record, and was particularly potent under Maurizio Sarri with Napoli, so it is no surprise the new Blues boss wants to bring him to London.
The report claims Spurs could make a last second swoop to hijack the deal though, as the Argentine striker is likely to depart after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.
On the scale of reliable transfer news to bizarre rumours, this is right up there on the bizarre end of the spectrum, but plenty of fans have been reacting to it.
Higuain has scored 218 league goals in 367 games since moving to Europe from River Plate back in 2005, and he would certainly be one hell of a partner for Harry Kane.
Let’s just say fans are sceptical of this one though, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Considering? How about we just do it!!!
