This has been one of Tottenham Hotspur’s best seasons over the past 20 years, and without Leicester City’s miraculous performances they could have been on the verge of a league title.
Mauricio Pochettino will already be looking for ways to improve his squad for next season and according to reports in Peru, Spurs have sent scouts to watch international winger, Cristian Cueva.
The 24-year-old has six caps for the Peru national side and it is reported that his club side, Toluca – who play in Mexico’s Liga MX – would be willing to sell for around €20 million says Peruvian paper, Libero.
A deal for the above figure would break records in Peruvian football and help bring the man they call “Aladdin” to the Premier League.
As the left-winger has played in Peru’s recent World Cup qualifying matches, Spurs would be confident he would qualify for a work permit.
Although Peru have failed to win any of their last five World Cup qualifiers, Cuevas is one of the few players that has caught the eye and met the approval of the fans.
It’s not like Spurs are lacking quality in the final third, it will be a lot of pressure on the winger, but if he can find that spark of magic, he could be a huge star at White Hart Lane.
