English Premier League (EPL) side Fulham are reportedly keen on signing Feyenoord Rotterdam striker Santiago Jimenez.
British outlet ‘Team Talk’ reported on February 2 (KST), “Feyenoord are ready to play hardball for Jimenez. Fulham have recently joined the chase for Jimenez, who is also a target for Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United.”
Jimenez is a rising European striker who joined Feyenoord from Cruz Azul in Mexico last summer. In his first season in Europe, in the 2021/22 Dutch Eredivisie, Jimenez finished fourth in the league with 15 goals and three assists in 32 games.
This season, Jimenez has stepped up his game. With 13 goals in 10 Eredivisie games, he is the league’s top scorer. Thanks to Jimenez, Feyenoord is fourth in the league with seven wins, two draws, and one loss (23 points). They are also first in Group E of the UEFA Champions League with a 2-1 record.
Jimenez’s stellar form in the Dutch Eredivisie has seen his value skyrocket. Along with Tottenham and West Ham in the English Premier League, Spanish giants Real Madrid are also keeping tabs on him.
Fulham have also joined the chase for Jimenez. Fulham have been left with a void after selling Aleksandar Mitrovic to Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal last summer. This season, Fulham have scored just nine goals in 10 league games. According to TeamTalk, Fulham are looking to spend a club-record £43.5 million ($707 million) to bring in Jimenez.
However, according to TeamTalk, Fulham’s desire is not likely to be easily realized. For starters, Feyenoord believe that Jimenez is worth more than £50 million ($81.3 million), according to the outlet. Finally, the outlet believes that Jimenez would want to move to a bigger club. 카지노사이트
